Der Raum is changing its name to Gamsei and relocating to Munich.
The German bar is due to open in March.
For many, this will come as devastating news – Matthew Bax is to the Melbourne cocktail scene what Shannon Bennett is to food, and Bax’s high-end, award-winning bar helped redefine Melbourne’s drinking scene. But don’t panic.
There’s Bax’s Bar Americano in the CBD, and Bax and crew are set to open Bar Economico – a Jamaican and Mexican inspired offering, specialising in rum – at the former Der Raum site at 438 Church Street, Richmond by April.
