The blue and breezy Arbory Afloat may have just shown up on the Yarra, but a new and considerably more psychedelic floating bar is on the way.
Supafish is a 38-metre-long buoyant booze ship from Grant Smillie and Andrew Mackinnon (Ponyfish Island).
Glowing eyes stare from the front of a steel and neon rib cage that crowns the 300-capacity barge. Laneway Group is taking care of the build.
Open daily from 11am to 1am, the bar will feature Pimm’s on tap, kombucha cocktails and Margaritas.
Smillie – a well-known Melbourne DJ – will curate the tunes.
Entry is between Ponyfish Island and Sandridge Bridge on Southbank Boulevard.
Supafish will open from early December and run through to February 2018.
