Cushdy is tucked away at the far end of Hindley Street, but it is worth every step of that sometimes perilous walk. This place has a seriously cool atmosphere, and will give you a real lesson in lounge. Head upstairs and relax on one of their sumptuous leather couches as you have a look at their cocktail menu by soothing candlelight.
What really sells this place is their unique selection, some of which you will find (almost) nowhere else in the country. Not only do they have a large variety of wine, spirits, and licqueurs, there are some things on the menu that you truly have to see to believe. Ever had liquid nitrogen poured over your favourite cocktail, turning it into a delicious slushie? I thought not. Cushdy's bar staff are expertly trained to prepare all sorts of crazy cocktails, so don't be surprised if they pull out a large drum of nitrogen or a welding flame when you make your order.
If you like what you see, why not learn how to make them yourself? Cushdy can teach you the art of shaking, with classes held on the first Friday of every month. Keep at it and you'll end up with your own bartender kit, and a chance at winning some great prizes.
Cushdy also holds private functions for up to 150 people, which is great if you're celebrating a birthday, or just want an intimate private gathering. They offer a delicious range of platters for these events, to make sure you're not just slamming down cocktail after cocktail.
So if you're looking for a truly memorable experience (or if you just want to get drunk pretty quickly), discover Cushdy cocktail lounge, you'll be glad you did.
