The Frenchman and I were at the Hippo Bar on Friday night and thought we should share it with you. If you're asking me for my bar tips for Canberra, this one would head the list.
Up a flight of red stairs - check! Floor to ceiling windows looking out onto a fairylight-lit square - check!
Cool, efficient and surly waiting staff - check, (the latter we won't hold against them because they were pretty young things and are allowed to pout and ponce a bit).
Makers of Pretty Drinks - check! They make an excellent 'Old-Fashioned', which resulted in the 1000-yard stare that you see above. And below was my view of the facilities after consuming my beverage. We should go together sometime. x
