Good Times Start Here.

Whether it’s after work drinks on a Friday, or loving some local live music; Pause Bar is the perfect venue for a get-together.

We have friendly mixologists on hand who can rustle you up anything from an Espresso Martini to a mean Negroni. If our Long Island Ice Teas are wrong you won’t want to be right, that’s why they’re infamously known as the ‘Wrong Island Iced Tea’.

We’re super proud to have served as a local hotspot in Balaclava for over a decade now, come down and check out what all the fuss is about. We’re based right in the heart of Carlisle St; the perfect venue for live music, functions and events.

If you’re feeling ravenous, we have a selection of house made bar-snacks including platters, calamari and fries with gluten free and vegan options available. Don’t forget to also check out our extensive range of tap beers and specialty wines.
