Martin Place Bar
A great new venue

Brand spanking new - Martin Place Bar has been around for a blink of an eye on the scale of things, but it's already making a mark, and we like it. Right opposite the rather upmarket Mint Bar, it's ostensibly competing for the same crowd, but MPB is far more friendly.

The music from inside is piped into Martin Place. you get an idea of what you're in for. the long bar is all chrome and wood, as seems to be de rigeur for bars these days. The selection is wide (the variety of bottles on the bar shelves is testament to that) and tonight it's not too crowded (early in the week, and the place is not that well known yet), but weekends are apparently 'wedged'.

A couple of beers and a chat with one of the owners and we ascertain a few facts.

1. There's an entertainment licence in the pipeline
2. The bar has strong industry support, so promotional nights may be likely
3. It's run by some great blokes

I was so taken with it that it may well become the new friday night after work spot. If it doesn't get *too* busy, that is.

There has got to be more to life than just being really, really, really, ridiculously good-looking.

A great bar, good atmosphere & crowd, though the bathroom was a terrible mess with blocked toilets and filthy floors.

Finally a bar that gets it right! A great atmosphere in the center of the City! Be sure to check out the 2 for 1 cocktails on a Tuesday night, they'll leave you hungry for more!

Awesome bar with great drinks (ask for the caprioska/cosmo by Adam - UNREAL!!) Great tunes everynight and atmostphere is spot on. Great place to meet up with mates for drinks and maybe a few late night mooves.

It turns out that the same place I had enjoyed a very nice breakfast at also turned out to be where I also enjoyed many nice ale's that evening. MPB- Multi-functional, Party Building
