So....I've Opened A Bar

For those not checking in on the “post your latest purchase” thread, myself and a buddy have just opened a bar called 99 Problems at 31 Johnston St, Collingwood.

It’s cosy, it’s dark, awesome staff and it’s got a pretty tasty booze selection if we do say so ourselves.

A nice vibe for those who wanna chill with a quality drop in other words.

you can be our friends and check out our drinks list here -

can we watch the paris-roubaix there on sunday night?

no, sorry… (only cos we have no antenna points or cabling yet).

trying to convince my business partner to let me show le tour when it’s on…

bike rack out the front?

Quilmes! Will be sure to drop in when I’m next in Melbs.

bike rack out the front?

lots of poles and have requested the council install some…

We can use eye TV and plug it into a screen?

Maybe he doesn’t want the lycra brigade ruining business… just saying :smiley:

I’ve always wondered how these come about. Is it just a matter of putting in a request for as many or few as you want? and they just comply(or not comply)?

I’ve noticed a few bars that seem to be struggling with bike parking. I think The Stardard has maybe one ‘semi circle’ out the front to lock to.

Also, I am pretty (very) excited to check this place out.

Toasted sangas!

When returning from a ride out to the Dandenongs, it’s at about that point on Johnston st where everyone tends to peel off to their respective homes - could make for a perfect post ride beer location.
It’s also on my commute home, so will be swinging by soonish.

i (barely) remember my first visit, the service was exquisite!

nice atmos, nice wallpaper, nice light globes(!). they even made me a cocktail that wasnt on the menu cos it was my bday.
also, cleanest toilet you’ll ever see in a bar!
3 thumbs up

Wow, and here I was thinking it was just drunken 18 year old girls that demanded special cocktails for their ‘birthday’. Bravo JAMS.

they even served it with a penis straw

i didnt particularly want a cocktail, but friends were insistent on buying me one…
turns out it is on the above list anyhow, jsut with a different name

No Magners!? I will definitely stop by when i’m in the area next. Do we get a discount being a member?
