Happy times @ Happy Palace

Somehow this place has made it to my list of favourite city bars, I always feel happy here, so I guess they nailed the name! Join us for some Hip hop, funk, grooves, beats and other niceness Saturday April 12th from 7pm. With top DJ's on rotation all night, Raiders will be all the ones with glow sticks and we will defs be raiding the dance floor this event so come prepared! 

I find it hard to put a finger on what direction the owners are going for with this bar, It's kind of 80's Suburban Chinese, with a prevalent western influence. It has a few quirky aesthetic features, including the bicycle seat bench, and the huge boat which births a group of friends for drinking and feasting.  

I love it. There is just something about the place that shouts out"We don't take ourselves seriously here, we're just about having fun". Ask any of the super friendly staff there who all bare the same name of "Nigel " (Well at least that's what their name badges say) 

It’s a great space, with its tables embedded with Mahjong tiles and chopsticks, and huge dragons sprawling across the walls.There’s a breezy balcony with a great view overlooking the Bourke/Exhibition Street intersection. With the chandeliers, lazy Susans and deliver-everything-at-once-then-try-to-clear-it-10-minutes-later style of service, they've nailed some ‘80s nostalgia. 

$7 spicy chicken ribs & $5 basic spirits 7-9pm, Great beer prices all week.

    Hi all! Looking forward to tonight. I will be standing at the top of the stairs and handing out glow stix so we all know who is with the group. You are welcome to meet beforehand, but rest assured, I will make sure it is as easy as possible for you to find us.

      Shane,I have no idea what are you talking about :-) I m pretty bad with technology. I would prefer meet you before at the front of that place. Otherwise I'll get lost :-) if you don't mind of course meeting me earlier.

    Hetti, you dont really know who is or is not part of the group until you get chatting. It compells one to meet people and is alot of fun. I will be going on my own for the first time to this particular group. If you and/or sophia or anyone else for that matter would like to meet before we go in here if you're a little uncomfortable then we can organise that very easily. All you have to do is let me know.

    Cheers
    Shane
