Live, Love, Laugh!
Published May 12th 2011
The name suggests it all, a bar situated in the back pocket of a Crown Street building. You wouldn't notice it unless you walked past it or heard about it from a friend, which is a shame because the place really needs to be recognised as an alternative socialising ground.

Employees of the establishment look to be all funky aliens from around the globe, who seem to be genuinely friendly folk one from the other.

Aside from the bartenders showing off amazing beverage slinging skills, army toy soldiers that linger from the steel support beams, and the vibe of interesting people peppered around, the small watering hole also exhibits several pop-art-ish murals stretched on the back wall that will almost certainly always bring up a conversation.

Since the bar is focused on word to word socializing, the music is soft, low key and easy to listen to. It fits into the atmosphere like an impeccable 'pocket', adding to the whole cosy mood of the place.

There is only one down side to the place and that is the capacity limit which may require you to wait outside for a bit, however from first impressions inside? It's worth the wait. You also might not be able to get a seat due to the popularity of the place, but don't fret, grab a drink, pick a spot that doesn't block thoroughfare and be prepared to have the load taken off you.
