Jai Chandegra, Bar Manager

I have actually lived in Australia a couple of times. I lived in Brisbane for a year-and-a-half, and in Melbourne for a year. In Brisbane, I was just bartending in bars and restaurants, whereas in Melbourne, I was managing venues as well. I would say my favourite place in Melbourne was this little neighbourhood bar called Collection Bar. It was partly owned by this genius dude...

Coming Soon: Blended Smoothie Bar

As if being a first-time business owner and launching during a global pandemic weren't challenges enough. Emily explained that the biggest challenge came with deciding the final menu for the bar. "There are endless combinations you could do. I wanted the menu to be quite unique, but also I didn’t want to be too ambitious and have offer too much. I have gone for quality over quantity in that respect. It has also been quite challenging just getting everything ready, as I am having the store redecorated. There has been a lot to juggle, but I am very happy with how it is looking now..."
