I like bars, especially new ones hidden in sort of hard to find places that serve cocktails and have fairy lights strung above. Union Electric is a recent addition to the Chinatown (Off Russell Street, off Little Bourke Street, on Heffernan Lane) and while you might accidentally walk by the the discreet entry, once inside you’ll find a buzzing little bar with plenty of personality.
It’s charm lies in the simplicity of the space, and the deliciousness of the cocktails to be found within. They have the self proclaimed best Espresso Martini in town too, though I’ll let you decide that one for yourself.
Also rocking at Union Electric is the glassware – I may end up with a champagne flute in my purse the next time I visit!
Stop by and say hi to the new kids on the block!
