It’s the perfect place to sip on our delicious Cocktails, open Tuesday – Saturday 4pm.

Our cocktails are playfully named which makes it the ideal place to expand your mixed drink education. See our vivacious list below!

In terms of entertainment, the upstairs bar features Drag + DJs every Friday and Saturday night, hosting ‘Fabulous Friday’ and ‘Saucy Saturdays’ with Queens in Sequins for Geelong’s Only Free Drag Show.
