MELBOURNE | George’s Bar Fitzroy is not quite a bar about nothing. Rather it’s a bar that’s inspired by Seinfeld’s George Costanza. Why you might ask? Well owners Dave and Tina Barrett really like Seinfeld and had the idea – that’s all there is to it. As soon as you walk into George’s Bar the Constaza influences are there to see. The space itself has a low-lit American diner vibe with an assortment of George paraphernalia. There are 2 Frogger machines, George Costanza artwork, a Constanza American football jersey and a range of framed quotes. There are plans to get in more George related items in the future, along with artwork by local George-inspired Seinfeld fans.

There’s a vending machine that dispenses only Twix bars and a small selection of toasted sandwiches with names inspired by George. Aventurous individuals should go for “The Dealership”, which is a combination of Twix, maple, pretzels and Bosco. When we visited a special order Dealership was being prepared that added Snickers to the mix. We didn’t eat on this occasion but did sit in one of comfortable booths to enjoy a drink. The drinks menu isn’t the most adventurous around but there’s enough that everyone should be satisfied – Coopers and Lion-owned beers, a mixture of entry level to mid level spirits along with a few wines and cocktails.

The Barrett’s are aware of what can happen to themed bars that rely too heavily on a novel idea and are working on building a bar that can stand on its own two feet. Strip away the George theme at the moment and George’s Bar is a simple place in which to kick back and relax. Will this enough once the novelty wears off? Only time will tell.
