Talking booze and bartending with Chris Hysted-Adams of Black Pearl Bar

Posted by Glennise Pinili on Feb 28, 2018 8:44:00 AM

Black Pearl Bar for many Melburnians is an institution, and it's easy to see why. The 15-year-old Fitzroy bar has collected plenty of awards including: International Cocktail Bar (2017 Spirited Awards), Best Bar in Australia (2017 World’s 50 Best Bars Awards), and Best Cocktail List award (2016 at Australian Liquor Industry Awards), to name a few. 

However despite the accolades, the bar remains a cool, modest and casual place for locals to kick back and have a few drinks, which General Manager, Chris Hysted-Adams believes is what makes Black Pearl Bar a successful one.
