Are you feeling neurotic, paranoid, totally inadequate, completely insecure? Maybe you should calm down and have a drink at this George Costanza-themed bar. A bar named in honor of the lovable loser from Seinfeld opened on New Year’s Eve in Melbourne, Australia.
This could certainly be shaping up to become the summer of George (See because Australia has the opposite seasons). George’s Bar features themed drinks and food, plus pictures, art and quotes of George Costanza.
“If I owned a company, my employees would love me. They’d have huge pictures of me up the walls and in their home, like Lenin.”
Find yourself some serenity now with cocktails such as “The Hand Model” or the “Marisa Tomei,” or enjoy a sandwich named the “Art Vandelay” or “The Quitter.”
I bet they purposely serve pretzels to make you thirsty.
I usually wouldn’t shop at a mom and pop bar, but I would make an exception for the George Costanza bar, which is owned by a husband and wife duo of Dave and Tina Barrett.
“It was called George’s all along, which is actually named after my father-in-law,” Dave told Mashable Australia. “There was some George Costanza stuff in there, because we had used him for marketing — then all this press happened.”
You have to market this place by saying, “the George Costanza bar called and they’re running out of you!”
Even Jason Alexander, the actor who played the beloved Seinfeld character, supports the Costanza-themed bar.
No word on whether their chicken is spicy or if they serve chocolate bars with a knife and fork.
Feel free to order a Pepsi, but don’t expect to get wine at this bar.
