Interesting prints surround you at this bar
Fiftyfive Bar is a small basement bar located a hop, skip and jump away from Flinders St Station in the heart of Melbourne CBD. It is a great little tucked-away bar and a place I love to go to catch up with my friends.
My friends and I love coming to this bar because it's nice and cosy, it's easy to chat with each other here, and we usually always get a comfy couch or table to sit at.
Fiftyfive Bar has a great variety of drinks, both alcoholic and non alcoholic. There are many different types of craft beers and six taps on rotation. My favourite non alcoholic drink here is the Lemmy Lemonade. When I am drinking alcohol I do enjoy a vodka raspberry drink which they make perfectly.
The music here is really different to what I normally listen to. It makes the place unique and they have different DJ's, who all play funky tunes that my friends and I love.
My friends and I like to come here on a Friday night for a chilled night of drinking, chatting and laughing. We have not yet found a venue that tops Fiftyfive and we don't think we will. For now, we are pretty happy with our staple bar. The other patrons are generally easygoing as well and there are never any fights or people being annoyingly drunk, which is good. Security is vigilant here and IDs are checked before entering the premises and patrons removed if they are not behaving appropriately.
The staff at the venue are terrific and they are happy to chat with you as they prepare your drinks. They also make some delicious food like pizzas to snack on. There is free popcorn as well which should be a tasty incentive to check this venue out.
