Name This Bar: Launch Party & Secret Wars, Darlinghurst (20 Jan 2010)

197 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst NSW 2010

Still nameless but open

After 5 weeks of trade, the owners of Name This Bar thought it was about time they had a party. So they decided to invite up to 200 guests to celebrate with free flowing Tiger Beer and homemade dumplings — although it was a challenge getting to the tasty morsels in such a packed bar. Previously some of the walls were open to comments but tonight they were freshly painted white for 8 artists to compete and paint their best pieces. The artists were organised through Secret Wars. The bar still remains nameless and my thoughts are it'll remain 'Name This Bar ?' which seems to be working so far.

PROS: Relatively unknown so still a good place to chill out
CONS: Nameless (but could be a pro as well)
MUST TRY: Dumplings
