Bar 9

Bar 9 is at 91 Glen Osmond Road a few doors down from the Blue Mango Lunch Bar. This venue was suggested to Merkel by a comment on an earlier posting of this blog. Bar 9 is also a SALA 2010 venue. This coffee bar is staffed by two men who seem passionate about their coffee and have a barista award to prove it. A range of light meals is available.

The SALA exhibition "The People's Car" is by Evangelia Karageorgos. The works are black and white photographs of Volkswagen beetles and vans cut-out to reveal wallpaper patterns giving the initial impression that the cars had been painted with these patterns. This quirky idea is well executed. The themes of cut-outs in art must be catching on as these media was also used at Enoteca.

The hot chocolate came in a glass and saucer. The drink was topped with a white froth and streaks of chocolate powder. This was a little disappointing in comparison to the pattern on Myrtles cappuccino which was an intricate fern leaf design. The drink was creamy, rich and a dark chocolate flavour and cost about $3.50.
