Amie Barbeler ventured into the Cross this week for a cocktail...
Denim wallpaper, disco balls, paranormal activity and taxidermied roosters... what more could you want from a bar, really? Set over four storeys, The World Bar is a labyrinth of rooms, booths, stairwells and hidden nooks. Calling the place eclectic is an understatement: it's a choose-your-own-adventure… with alcohol.
Upon arrival, my date and I managed to narrowly avoid a group of highly-spirited backpackers by escaping to one of the secluded booths in the stylish Apothecary Bar, where we shared a teeth-achingly sweet teapot cocktail of the Fruit Tingle ($18) variety. Think vodka, tequila, blue Curaçao and lemonade.
Food wise, the bar keeps it simple, with gourmet pizza being your only option. We settled on The Plato ($20): goat’s cheese, roasted pumpkin, snowpeas and cashews. Delicious. From jazz and dubstep, to hip hop and comedy, every night is different at The World Bar; but if you like music and you love adventure, then you’ll fit right in.
