Long line to get in which made expectations high. Were dissapointed on arrival. Strange vibe. $12 a schooner is a bit rich.

Had an excellent night out in the Karaoke rooms for my birthday. We had the Orange room with a drinks package. Our hosts Nathan and Hayden were exceptional and ensured we had a good time and came in for a drinks orders quite often. Our...More

88MPH, ‘Don’t You Want Me’ to come back? When the bar guy tells me my drink is $9 but takes the $10 note out of my hand, says “that’ll do” and doesn’t even try and give me my change, it just makes me want to...More

I was in my late teens in the 80s so I loved it! The staff with one exception are outstanding. As the night grew on the place had a really great crowd. I will be back .... with friends

I was 10 in 1980 so the 80's were my decade of growing up and the 80s arguably gave us the best decade of music. So, when I heard of this 88mph bar opening, I thought I'd take a look. First impressions are that it's...More
