Ballarat's newest bar ready to open its doors

BALLARAT'S newest bar, is set to celebrate its official opening this weekend.

The new Entourage Lounge has already proven popular among residents with an unofficial opening on New Year’s Eve. 

Once the Side by Side bar, the Mair Street building has been transformed into an upbeat bar and lounge, offering patrons the best of both worlds with a full cocktail bar and restaurant.

Entertainer Chris Warren said the reaction from visitors to the lounge so far has been positive with many commenting on the quality of detail.

“Everyone loved it, we were at capacity New Year’s,” he said.

“It’s more like a Sydney style bar and nightclub that also caters for meals.”

Friday nights have been described as the place to go after work with friends, while Saturday is set to cater for the younger crowds with live entertainment.

“We have had a lot of people say that there isn’t a place for over-25s to go which is why we have made Friday night predominantly for the over 25s.”
