Juanita’s Bar pays tribute to an iconic and influential figure in our history. The bar is named after one of Victoria Streets most famous former residents, journalist Juanita Nielsen. Juanita’s determination through activism against greedy developers in the 70’s saved the very building The Butler and Juanita’s now calls home, along with the historic terraces next door from demolition.
Her efforts led to her disappearance, which remains a mystery to this day….
Come join us to toast this Kings Cross Icon with pre or post dinner drinks or nibbles, or just come down anytime to check out Juanita’s Seasonal Cocktail Menu and extensive wine list. Available for mid week bookings.
