One of my kooky friends, Lynette, introduced us to this place some months back, but only found our way to this bar recently. Since Klee closed, I’ve been looking for a bar that serves decent cocktails. Bar Stories at Haji Lane totally hits the spot and deserves my monies!
Jeff, who manages the bar, is a friend of Brenda’s, and he’s very nice and appropriately chatty, I like him!
I was there for two consecutive weekends. The first time there was spent with Pam, Brenda and Jacq, and the second time, with Martyn, someone I’d met when I was 15, at a time when I was big on local bands and he was a sub-editor at Big O magazine. After almost half my lifetime of losing touch, we met once again at Food#03 a couple years back, although he doesn’t recall our initial brief acquaintance! I did look very different I suppose, and judging by the way I looked back then, I’d like to forget myself too… and so I forgive him!
Check it out at 57A Haji Lane, and do try the Honeydew Sake. It’s tooooo good, addictive, and unforgettable!
