Is this the world’s smallest bar?

Is this the world’s smallest bar? Image

On Valentines Day, Glowgolf at The District Docklands opened what it believed to be the smallest bar in the world.

The bar, Le Bar Europeen, has been added to the glow-in-the-dark mini golf course that has called Docklands home since 2009.

Owners of the family business, Michael and Julie Blyth, will soon be calling in the Guinness World Records team to verify their title.

“We’re licensed for four people, that’s the most that can be in the bar area at a time,” Mr Blyth said.

“The one that’s in the Guinness Book of Records is about 4.4 square metres, and we’re about a square metre less than that,” he said.

To be exact, the bar is 1.4m wide and 2.7m long.

As per the name, the bar aims to provide patrons with a European atmosphere.

“We came up with the idea about four years ago from travelling around Europe and seeing bars that have been in the same family for 500 years,” Mr Blyth said.

Going with the theme, the husband and wife team run their business with the help of three of their children.

Mr Blyth even built the bar himself.

“That effect on the wall is just plaster, with three different colours,” he said, pointing to the old, rustic looking walls.

“It took about two weeks on-and-off, but probably no less than 20 hours all together.”

Le Bar Europeen and Glowgolf share the same opening hours.
