You don’t have any plans yet for the weekends? If you are a fan of cocktails, you probably consistently finding the best deal you could when it comes to alcohol and that’s me for sure. I don’t usually go home sober on Friday night! 😜
Hence, you can consider stopping by at Good Things bar located on Commercial Rd South Yarra. Believe it or not, you can enjoy 2 hours of cocktails buffet for only $30 with options like Fruit Tingle, Espresso Martini, Cosmopolitan and Pina Colada! I say it’s a good way to start your night before the clock strikes 11pm!
Quick fun fact about cosmopolitan; Sex and the City played a role in influencing bars bringing in the cosmopolitan drink into their menu when the drink made its debut in the second season of the show and appeared several times (Teeter, 2014). However, prior to that, many recognise and credited Cheryl Cook or known as The Martini Quen of South Beach who modified the drink inspired by ‘Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice’ drink (or was once known as the Harpoon) to make it visually appealing to women by including; Absolut Citron, a new product; Rose’s Lime, a little triple sec and cranberry juice to give it the characteristic pink hue (History of The Cosmopolitan Cocktail, 2012).
It doesn’t stop there my friends! I learned that they have the weirdest martinis that you could ever think of, and that is Vegan Oreo Martini 😱. Did I give it a try? Of course I did, it was weird at first, but after a while, it’s actually not that bad since I always love Oreos or I’m just weird. If you’re not a fan of Oreo, no biggy because they also have Milo Martini, Nerds Martini, Coco Pops Martini, Golden Gaytime, and Cadbury Creme Egg Martinis starting from $15! You can learn more about their buffet and updates or even purchase your pass through their Facebook page @Supersmallclub .
Oh, they have cool murals too that you can check it out! It’s located in a separate room with half opened rooftop so you can still enjoy the fresh air, and don’t worry about the cold, they have heaters to warm the whole room up. Lushsux is the creative guy behind the art and it looks awesome! Lushsux is well known for his creative and unique street murals.
