From an entry via a carpark on Geelong’s stylish Pakington Street you enter Strasse Bar, the city’s answer to Melbourne’s 1806. In fact, it was former 1806 manager Nick Reed who set up the cocktail spot last year along with Paul Marinelli from Scotchman’s Hill winery. It's a laid back joint, with the red brick and wooden inlays broken up with smart art… another nod to Melbourne? The well-travelled duo’s approach to their cocktails is simple: everyone has different tastes. So at Strasse you chose your flavours, rather than a pre-made drink, and the boys will create something especially for you. The menu is divided into 'main street' and 'side street', so you can choose between, say, a back-alley noodle curry and a calamari cone. There are also some teenage-style nibbles (will you choose the Doritos and salsa, or the onion rings?), or you could ultimately soak things up more efficiently with a kebab.
