Oh how I love a bar that celebrates all things easy, breezy and relaxing about a tropical holiday! When that said bar is right in the middle of your hometown which is anything but tropical, that love becomes a serious case of lust. That’s how strong my feelings towards The Highball Express are.
When you enter the somewhat grungy Odgers Lane and go up the rickety external stair case you really don’t have much of a clue as to the glorious space that awaits you. The first thing I fell in love with was the beautiful all white interior with accents of greens, yellows and blues. This is of course the total opposite to pretty much every bar I can think of in Canberra where the general consensus amongst design folks seems to be bar = dark and moody. Call me crazy but drinking in a dark den isn’t to everyone’s taste or mood! Not to mention it’s not Instagrammable either but I digress.
