Welcome to the ‘Junk Bar,’ Ashgrove’s hidden treasure or ‘hole in the wall’ as they describe themselves. This sneaky lounge is one of those places that you won’t find unless you are ‘in the know.’ But once you have found it you make it your own. Take it from me, I have been back quite a few times.
Don’t be fooled by the outside. Junk Bar is a place that should definitely be judged by the inside, not by it’s cover. After discovering the plain glass door and shabby velvet curtain, step inside to a candle-lit room that has truly been transformed. Miss-matched lounges and old fashioned lamps are set against the likes of forest wall paper and old records. The homely feel of this place makes you feel as though you can settle in for the evening.
A word of advise – bring your wallet because their unique beer list and extensive cocktail menu is divine and you won’t be able to resist having just the one. And if you are really keen, save some cash for their New York style bagels or Chinese delivery from next door.
