Posted November 18, 2018 04:10:53 The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) is about to get its own bar, and a few bars are already operating in the CBD.
Ambiance Salon and Cafe has been opening up for about a year in the former Cattleman’s Arms, a building that once housed the nightclubs.
Owner and manager, Daniel Steed, said the cafe and bar would be a welcome addition to the CBD, as it would help cater for a wider range of people.
“We’re looking for people to come in, who are not necessarily regulars or locals, and we’re looking to attract people to us,” he said.
“It’s a really good opportunity for people who haven’t been to the area before to get to know it and maybe be a little bit more adventurous.”
The bar has two wings, which can accommodate up to 60 people, and serves food from a range of local and national brands.
Mr Steed said the concept was a collaboration between his bar and the ACT Government, which has been in contact with him about the concept.
“The Government has been really supportive and really supportive of the concept and the concept is going to help a lot of people who are new to the city,” he explained.
“There are a lot more bars in Melbourne now, it’s just really difficult to find the right ones to fit the community and the need.”
It will also help the cafe attract a younger clientele.
“Our cafe is open for about 10 days, it can last up to two weeks, so it’s really easy to get into,” Mr Steed added.
“And the other thing we’re trying to do is try and encourage people to be more active in the community by providing a different way of living and eating.”
