Bar Fly - The Bear Bar




Hidden under the stairs at Capitol Square, The Bear Bar, doesn’t look like much from the outside. If you choose to descend, you’ll find a Nordic influenced basement bar with some thematic elements like two giant stuffed bears in the entranceway. It’s largely a long, dark, ski-lodge inspired open space, with a few cosy nooks and crannies where groups can gather away from the maddening crowd.



Like myself, the people mostly seem to be here for some good old-fashioned middle class pre-loading before enjoying dinner in any of Haymarket's neighbouring restaurants.



On Thursdays between 4pm-10pm, drinks – like a Gin Martini ($12) – are cheap, and full of booze, though a far cry from smooth or sophisticated. The bar is famous for their boozy cupcakes made by Mrs. Miggin, but on this particular visit I wanted to save my appetite for dinner.
