I’m feeling somewhat lighter in the wallet department after an evening at the Wine parlour room (http://www.parlour.net.au).
I ordered a Vodka Martini with lemon, it was fine, if a little watery. A while later the waitress asked for more drinks orders from our table, so I asked for the drinks menu. I was about to order a finger of vodka, neat, when I stumbled on the price – $7 for regular, $10 for their “Premium” (grey goose – if you care)… for a single!
I asked for water…
When I went to settle, the Martini was $16.00! What the HECK?
Is it common to pay this sort of money for basic drinks in Canberra? How much expert training is required for a Uni student to measure 2 ingredients into a shaker, pour, then ad a twist of lemon?
Check their drinks menu. How does $20 for a Bloody Mary sound?
