If you check out the Bulletin Place Bar website, you’re not going to find much info. But, the two words they do use ‘drinks & atmosphere’ pretty much sum this bar up to a tee.
A newcomer to the small bar scene, Bulletin Place Bar is a welcome addition. Hidden away in Bulletin Place (no surprises there), it’s a little tricky to find, but all the best bars are. Take the unmarked doorway next to the coffee shop, shoot up the stairs in the direction of the tattoo parlour and you’re there.
Step inside and you’ll find a cosy, intimate oasis, in fact you’re probably only going to fit 50 people in here, with a very Melbourne feel. We like it. Nothing pretentious, welcoming, inviting, the kind of place where you can forget the pretences and simply have a good time. Think roughly painted cream brick walls and single light bulb fittings, complimented by warm woods and a rather interesting wall mural.
In our eyes, cocktails are where these guys shine. Be sure to check out the brown paper cocktail menu for the cocktail specials that day. They change according to the best available fruit at the time.
Do they serve wine? Sure, but don’t expect an extensive menu. Two whites and two reds will be open at any one time. Does that bother us? Not at all. Not when the bar is this good.
Feeling peckish? You can order a limited tapas menu from next door Tapavino.
Check it out soon, but keep it to yourself if you don’t mind, we want to score a seat when we next visit. Though you should note they cannot accommodate groups larger than 8.
