Named after Abu's Milk Bar in downtown Addis Ababa, Milk Bar in Parkmore is a quirky African-retro-styled café, that looks onto an adjoining sports club. The playful decor with its quirky old-fashioned hand-painted barbershop signs and colourful African upholstery reflects the cafe-bar's casual and friendly atmosphere. Serving casual cafe fare it's ideal for a weekend family lunch, especially with a jungle gym for the kids, and is also a popular venue to catch up on the rugby of a Saturday afternoon (just make sure to arrive early for a table with a view of the screen).
Milk Bar's biggest winning feature is a huge beer garden that spreads out across a wide terrace and into the gardens and under the trees, taking up far more space than the actual bar building itself. On warm evenings the beer garden swells to capacity, so it's advisable to arrive before sunset.
