I can tell you one thing: this bar offers two great things that I’ve never seen merged like this anywhere else: they make fantastic cocktails while great music plays – mainly classic rock music from the 80s onwards.
There is a large selection of cocktails that you can browse through on the PC at the counter or try one of their Top 30 cocktails. What I find very interesting, are the twists that they add to make their cocktails unique. They offer all the classics, like a mojito, or some very unconventional ones, like a sea buckthorn margarita. The majority of cocktails won’t sound familiar, but the great bartenders are happy to assist you in your choice or even mix you something off the menu just according what you feel like. I can recommend the “Suffering Bastard” or the “Snickers” cocktail which are spectacular.
The cocktail bar sling in is hidden inside of a mall in the centre, which does not seem like the most attractive location, I have to admit. You enter the building at the passage where it says “Aikapiha” and take the stairs up to the bar – you won’t miss it once you find the entrance. On the other hand it guarantees you that not many walk-in customers make the place too crowded. Sling in Bar is probably one of the most established around, they opened in 1999!
