It’s not your average bar setting with sticky tabletops, olives, flowing bottles of wine and dim lights; but rather, sky-high dinosaur skeletons, animals behind glass, living stick insects, bugs and lizard paradise.
The Australian Museum launched Jurassic Lounge to get people back into the museum to explore and become fascinated with the world of dinosaurs, birds, fish, mammals and insects. With the help of a pop-up bar, a live band, live tattooing, a silent disco and plenty of things to see and do.
Walking through the museum, there are plenty of things to discover and rediscover. Armed with our wine glasses, we wander through pressing our noses to the cabinets filled with eerie animals of the extinct and endangered. We also take a moment to sit amongst the dinosaur skeletons while headbopping to a live band and in the other room, silent disco dance around brightly illuminated information boards.
Entry is $15 with a drink on entry; and although the food menu doesn’t extend beyond a meat or veggie pie (small menu aside, it is actually an amazingly good gourmet party pie!) the wine keeps flowing. Jurassic Lounge is luring back adults for a night at the museum.
Jurassic Lounge is happening every Tuesday till the end of April!
