Opening inside the one-time tobacco factory on Cleveland Street, Mjolner (pronounced Mjol-near) is a carvery and whisky bar in Redfern. It’s the newest venture by The Speakeasy Group, who operate Eau De Vie and The Roosevelt.
In case you don’t already know, Thor’s hammer is a Mjolner, just to give you a good idea of the theme of this Vikings-inspired bar. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, we can talk about more important things – like the fact that the drinks list will boast approximately 600 varieties of whisky. So even the pickiest whisky connoisseur should easily find something to satisfy.
The carvery serves comfort food and while the beast will change daily, depending on what is locally available, you can bet that they’ll be serving up bone marrow, sprinkled in dehydrated meat powder made from a selection of their cured meats from the open kitchen.
The combination of historic Viking features with contemporary Scandinavian design will keep you coming back to feast like a Viking God.
