Just when you thought the celebrations were over, the Festivus pole keeps on giving with this beauty: a George Costanza-themed bar. Yep, the Seinfeld character and undisputed Lord of the Idiots himself has provided the inspiration for a whole damn bar, which officially opened in Melbourne last night.

George's Bar reads exactly like those mates who have watched every episode of the NBC comedy six times, quote it constantly and emulate a Jerry Seinfeld-esque vibe. Unsurprisingly, co-owner Dave Barrett is one of those people, and told The Age that the idea to theme the bar arose because they just "really like Seinfeld". The bar, which is located in the city's inner north, is filled with signed Seinfeld memorabilia, paste-ups, and will serve well-named toasties and cocktails such as The Hand Model and The Art Vandalay. Expect many a Costanza quote.

As far as themed bars go, this is definitely one of the most interesting — and pop culturally significant — to open for a while. Novelty factor is at an all-time high. Book a trip to Melbourne and let the Summer of George commence.


George's Bar is located in Melbourne at 120 Johnston Street, Fitzroy and is open 6pm - late daily. For more info, visit their Facebook page
