The Bar Dream – The Sandy Bunker

On 15, Jul 2014 | No Comments | In CBD, Events | By Rosie

Description

For those of you who missed the memo The Bar Dream is currently taking place on the level four of the iconic Carlton Hotel.  For the month of July six small licensed spaces will be open to the public, making the dream of opening a bar a reality for six creative Melbournites.  Each bar has a different theme, for the vintage lovers out there I’m guessing The Sandy Bunker will be the pick of the bunch with it’s 1920’s finery and delicious cocktails.  Astor Productions, the team that brought you The Gatsby Winter and Gatsby Spring Soiree, is responsible for the creation of The Sandy Bunker.  This glorious vintage cocktail lounge is full of old world charm and sure to impress!

The brightly coloured walls of this vintage store are lined with racks of quality secondhand clothing – beautiful blouses, stunning skirts, delightful dresses and much more – it may be small but Harry Wragg sure packs a punch!  The collection of unique articles has been carefully selected with a wide variety of styles, sizes and colours on display.  There are some fantastic accessories (both vintage and new), notably a bright yellow glomesh bag in the window display.  There is also a sale section at the rear for those in search of a bargain.
