A weekend at Bernies?

Following our contested commentary on Havana Music Cafe another small venue has opened with a music theme. Bernie's Jazz Piano Cafe is on Abbott St next to the Jelly Babies, where once was the Lemonade Tree.

This hasn't been a succesful site recently despite in a sense being an intimate venue not far from the Esplanade cattle yard. The previous incarnation as Andre's didn't last long but they did do a makeover in a red colour theme which remains ..... so Bernies haven't had to splash too much on renovations.

Kitchenslut wandered past last night while staggering home but didn't linger to check it further. There is a piano in the street window and they did have a few patrons, having only opened last weekend. They don't have any footpath tables as in the past at this venue, and a suggestion would be that maybe they could consider something outside to attract attention?

The menu seems mainly focused on smaller tapas style to suit the venue. A small selection of mains seemed almost superfluous and quite boring. Time will tell ..........
