Molly Speakeasy Bar Canberra

Molly Speakeasy Bar CanberraMolly Speakeasy Bar CanberraI've been finding myself at Molly Bar on a Friday after work quite often in the past few months. My workplace is very close (I believe my consultation room shares a wall with Molly), and I can hear music, clinking of glasses, and laughter starting from lunchtime onwards on most days. On Fridays temptation is strong, and we find ourselves walking down the fire stairs through the heavy wooden doors before even realising what's happened. If you haven't heard of Molly, it's one of the few prohibition style bars that's popped up in Canberra; and in true speakeasy style, it's 'hidden' - with a concealed entrance and only the coordinates on their website to guide you. Clue: it's near Hobart Pl in Civic, just off London circuit, behind Gozleme cafe- just follow the sound of 'La Vie En Rose'.

Phil usually orders the Old Fashioned- which he says is the best version he's ever tried, and I normally go for a regional wine and sometimes. For the peckish they also have a charcuterie corner with cured meats and cheeses ready to be sliced and plated.
