A Moroccan oasis ready for a party.


Pause Bar is a Moroccan inspired oasis in the heart of Carlisle Street, Balaclava. Over the past decade, Pause has built a reputation for a great night out. Pause is a place where locals drop by for a quiet drink, friends catch up over espresso martinis and our famous wrong island iced tea mixed with dangerous dark spirits ,or settle in for a night with a quality red and a Casablanca lamb curry. Renowned for its unique beer and wine lists, a classic cocktail menu, spicy bar food (falafel, infused olives and lamb and pine nut flatbreads), laidback staff, and regular live music, there is something about the Pause space that really works. There is space for bar flies; dancing, meet ups and lounging as well as a generous outdoor area. Come down and find your spot. We look forward to seeing you and your friends at Pause Bar soon.
