I love so many things about Junk Bar - the ambience, the eclectic glasses and drinks, the comfortable 'lounge room' style decor... I often meet up with other mums here for an hour or two on the weekend, as it's unpretentious and always relaxing.

I enjoy going to this bar, it is Intimate and you can have a good chat without being drowned out by the music. The Cocktail are full strength, Try the Junk Island Iced Tea if your game

Junk Bar can be easily missed, and even when you do find it and walk in you'd wonder how Ashgrove ended up with such a great little bar considering you'd really only expect to see a bar with this much character closer to the CBD or Valley. With a menu full of delicious hot & cold cocktails, it's definitely the... More

Blokes, being your girls here. It's a cracker of a place and they will love it and you'll thank me for it. The cocktails are the bomb at this weird little place. The seating is great and you can get know the other patrons there as well. They also have live bands play there occasionally and highly recommend getting along... More

The atmosphere, the service, the décor- just everything about this place is just right. Parking can be a bit difficult, and a little expensive- but well worth it.

flying under the radar its a hidden treasure. not your typical bar but an experience like no other. all decor is up-cycled and pre-loved - trinkets, wall hangings and couches, record player and vinyls. great service

Best music. Original drinks list. And the staff who are beautiful. It won't be long before you are a regular Junker. The visits are addictive.
