A brand new steam punk bar opened in Melville this past week to a raging success, but what do they have to offer?
This past weekend saw a new hot spot opening in Melville, oozing a fresh steam punk style.
The Countess situated in 27 boxes opened to a very successful weekend sporting a steel and copper look that gave it a trendy vibe. Head bar tender Julian Short said they want to introduce something different and unique to Melville. “We want to introduce incredibly wholesome food that people will remember and drinks that are engaging and different to what everybody else is doing.”
He said they chose the steam punk style “because copper and brass are sexy”.
The bar offers a short and sweet Cocktail list, as well as a DIY Cocktail section created “in order to educate the customer about what cocktails are and how to drink them” said short.
Food prices range from R35 -R170 and drinks range from R16 – R80. This bar offers something for everyone, serving American style smokehouse foods, cocktails from every corner of the globe, and has a sandwich and coffee bar.
Short said they chose 27 boxes because it “is an amazing centre filled with forward thinking creatives. It has an amazing energy and we feel as though we fit right in here.”
“We have something for everybody here. Our target market is anybody with an open mind who is looking for good food and drink.”
