Time Out says

Just like its name, Barcode, short for bar, coffee, and dessert, serves all three of those things. Located on Glenealy Street, just below Smoke & Barrel, the shop serves snacks and desserts, as well as a variety of hand drip coffee in the morning, but once the clock strikes six, head into their hidden room for some after-work drinks. The brains behind the bar is tea-cocktail connoisseur and Tell Camellia's co-founder Gagan Gurung. Expect a menu of classic drinks and a roster of new signature coffee cocktails aka ‘coffee-tails’, designed to pair with their desserts and appeal to the sweet tooth crowd, like their Matcha Mousse parfait with chestnut. Try out the Coffee and Yu ($130), Barcode’s take on an espresso tonic with the addition of locally produced coffee liquor, and yuzu. Other coffee infused drinks include their in-house redistilled gin with flavours like mango strawberry, blueberry, and hazelnut –if you can’t decide which to choose, try all three in a tasting flight ($150).
