It used to be called Mint, then it was closed for what seemed like an age. Now it's been re-opened as 'Hotel Chambers', still looking very posh, but now with extra liveliness. Where before Mint was rather a snobby spot, we managed to turn up for a review in scruffy threadbare jeans and t-shirts, replete with sneakers and noone batted an eyelid.
It's on the expensive side, as you'd expect, and the focus is on conversation, not pool or pokies, which we rather approve of, and it's at its busiest, as you'd expect for this part of the CBD, on a friday evening, when we recommend checking it out if you're around.
A good selection of beer is complemented, of course, by a good wine and champagne list, and it's certainly not unusual to see a more than one bottle of wine at a table. It's stylish as ever. Try it out if you want to pick up a suit or maybe schmooze someone a little.
