Damask Bar Review

Review by Vikki Mistriotis

Edgy, urban and with a hint of swagger.

The chic citizens of Melbourne’s renound Brunswick Street have much to show off to both its local and international visitors with the iconic Fitz Café bringing you the new alluring Damask Cocktail and Mezze Bar.
As I walk down the urban streets of Brunswick I can’t help but feel like the coolest kid on the block as all the tattooed indie individuals and brightly painted walls with graffiti murals by Melbourne’s elite underground artists entice my attention. Just like Damask Bar.

Located upstairs, Damask Bar is neatly sectioned and furnished with half circle booths facing the long line of windows allowing you to oversee the nightlife of Brunswick street itself, whilst keeping warm with its old English style fireplace. It has plenty of seating space both inside and outside, as it has a stylish rooftop terrace with water features, benches and stools to enjoy your icy cold beverage and cigarette under the summer night sky- a perfect summer setting.

Open from Thursday to Sunday, you can book the venue to have all for yourself for roughly $150, or mingle with the friendly public with no entry charge on either of the opening nights. Platters of Mediterranean mezze (Greek, for nibbles of food) can also be purchased and scattered around the bar tables to soften the lining of your stomach and prepare it for the tantalizing cocktails that Damask has in store for you.

Damask Bar’s famous Damaskon 17 cocktail is one beverage that should be on then crossed off your to do list. Made up of fresh pressed watermelon and mint leaves before being lightly splashed with Belverdere Vodka and Watermelon Liqueur, Damaskon 17 is a must-try cocktail that will leave your taste buds not only wanting more but needing one more hit of that mouthwatering taste.

Damask Bar has a music system available that can cater to all music preferences for its customers. Generally however more laidback music is played before 9pm followed by funkier dance tracks to keep the party rhythm bumping through the night. Its unique sleek decoration sends out very relaxing vibes for those wanting to relax and enjoy a social night out with friends in a sophisticated yet unpretentious setting. Damask Bar is popularly desired by 25-40 year olds looking for a place to happily end the working week with drinks on a Friday afternoon as well as Melbourne’s preferred pub and bar goers always looking out for ‘fresh meat’ in the bar scene.

With Brunswick Street's constant hustle and bustle and local traffic noise, Damask Bar offers a quite tucked away hideout for those seeking to relax, unwind and enjoy the secret ingredients that Brunswick Street never fails to offer in its unrivaled nightlife reputation.
