The beautiful Art Deco building, the original 1950's decor and good old fashioned milkshakes and spiders make for a memorable and unique visit.
A spider? What is a spider? A spider is a mix of Bells' home made cordial, very fizzy soda, ice and ice cream. The only time I'll drink a lime flavoured drink is when it's a Spider. It certainly brings back some wonderful memories.
The winner of many tourism awards and favourite of people everywhere, Bells is a place to bring your children or your grandchildren and relive your childhood.
Bells started as F. Fenton Confectioners in 1892 and after a change of hands and some misfortune due to World War I, it became Bells in 1938. You can read more about the fascinating history of the Milk Bar here.
It's a fun place to visit and if you're visiting Broken Hill I would strongly suggest that you go and completely immerse yourself in this nostalgic milk bar experience. Sit at an original Formica table, read a newspaper or magazine from the 1950's and listen to 1950's radio as well. But, phew - there are some mod cons; fresh brewed organic coffee, herbal tea and free wi-fi are offered to visitors as well.
