Another well-hidden bar has opened its inconspicuous doors in the Parliament / Paris end of the CBD.
Strange Wolf is a new space set in a once dingy basement meets industrial warehouse at the top end of Collins Street. Think bare walls, exposed electrical cables and all that distressed grunge that is hip right now.
We just hopped in for a quick beverage, but will be back for food and more drinks at a later date. First impressions: good selection of Aussie and international beers, bubbles, wine and good-value cocktails. Good air-conditioning so head down on a sweltering day to cool off – although there is minimal natural light so it might feel a bit like you are in a dungeon. Albeit a dungeon with funky lounge music and booze on tap. Big enough standing and seating spaces to accommodate large groups, which is perfect for post-Christmas parties.
