Every uni has a bar. At La Trobe Uni, tomorrow’s future gets smashed at the Eagle Bar. It’s a bit odd, it could have been a Backyard Blitz makeover with the tile paving under the bistro chairs and tables, and carbon dioxide suckers ensure a constant stream of an oxygen under extended cover. Clear the space and it can turn into the place in Bundoora for a bit of a boogie.
Don’t expect much on the food front though, it’s just pub grub with daily specials. $11 for porterhouse steaks on Tuesdays with chips and salad and choice of pepper, diane, mushroom sauces. Cooked to order, meat tender enough but the gristle could have been cut away.
At Eagle Bar, food is a secondary consideration. Hardly surprising, it is a uni bar after all.
