Need some respite from our urban Jungle? We give you the lo-down on the top 5 bars to head off to have that comforting tipple.
5. 1 Twenty Six
Amongst my personal favourite but ranked last on the list due to travel limitations. 1 Twenty Six is a absolutely perfect in its ambience and service. Fantastic scenery and a huge selection of beers and cocktails to choose from.
An absolutely perfect place to hangout with friends or family and highly recommended for those special dates. For more information visit www.1twentysix.com.
4. The Merry Men
Relatively new on the block, this FnB outlet has been open for slightly over a month now. A great venue located along Robertson Quay. Great food and even better service. The Merry Men has a pretty standard bar menu, but special requests can always be arranged for by the excellent bar staff.
Most definitely a place worth heading to after work or on that lazy Sunday Afternoon. Usual bar grub and a fantastic relaxed atmosphere. The Merry Men is family and dog friendly as well. And did i mention the cheapest beers in town!
