Juanita's Bar

Pay tribute to one of Victoria Streets most famous former residents… Juanita Nielsen

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….

Sitting at street level, Juanita’s bar is a private nook where you can enjoy bar snacks and cocktails, pre-dining drinks or you can hire the space exclusively for events. The interior is made up of sandstone walls, fresh timber, rattan finishes and a fireplace, complimented with abundant tropical plants.
The menu follows suit of The Butler and dishes up Ibero-American bar food, accompanied with seasonal cocktails and a carefully selected wine list.
Opening Hours:
Thursday: 5pm – 10pm
Friday & Saturday: 2pm – 11pm
