A New Bar in Australia is Based on SEINFELD's George Costanza
Move over, Will Ferrell — you're no longer the latest pop culture icon with your own themed bar. The Sydney Morning Herald reports that a new establishment has opened in the Fitzroy area of Melbourne, Australia called George's Bar, named after Jason Alexander's Seinfeld character George Costanza.
Named George's Bar, the venue will feature autographed items, Seinfeld paste ups and a toastie and cocktail menu tailored around jokes from the iconic series.
Co-owner and operator Dave Barrett told Fairfax Media the idea came him because "we really like Seinfeld".
"We came up with the name George's and worked backwards, concept themeing it. George Costanza suits a bar in a lot of ways. The humour around George works," said Barrett who also owns Fitzroy's Laundry Bar.
"So at the moment we've got our toasties menu which has items like The Art Vandalay, The Costanza and The Mom and Pop. We're still finalising the cocktail menu but it will be similar."
George is my favorite Seinfeld character, so naturally I'd love to visit this place. Autographed photos are currently being brought in, and the doors are emblazoned with classic Costanza quotes like, "Everyone must like me, I must be liked" and "It's not a lie if you believe it."
