The owners behind Gotham Bar weren’t fussed about buying into the idea of laneways. They figured, why hide down a laneway when you can set up shop on one of the most famous streets in the city — Oxford Street. They’ve dubbed it a ‘street bar’. Which really isn’t a novel concept at all. What is novel is the design by Squillace Nicholas. The old-1930s building has been given a Gotham City makeover, with a black and white clock silhouette behind the bar of superhero proportions. Pressed metal ceilings, chesterfields, red leather bar and vintage fireplaces all combine to complete the super transformation.
