Wowee Zowee is a late night rock ‘n’ roll dive bar hiding down a brick lane off Main Street, Mornington. The venue is owned and run by a crew of experienced Peninsula locals
Clint Hyndman (Yellow Bird, Something For Kate drummer), Cam Marshall (Garagiste Wines, Balcombe Gin), Craig Baum (Baum & co, bar barons), Simon Tarlington (head chef at JACKalope’s restaurant ‘doot doot doot’).
They serve fried chicken, hot wings, burgers and vegan and vegetarian eats. All with a focus on local produce. The bar features an extensive selection of single malt whisky, with a focus on local spirits, a fridge full of tinnies of cold beer and sours, which they continue to rotate and update.
On tap they pour Young Henry’s ‘Newtowner’, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Mountain Goat Steam and Kona Big Wave. “We smash out a heap of cocktails from sweet to the classic,” says Clint Hyndman. “Most importantly there’s plenty of bar banter soundtracked by rocking tracks from the 60’s & 70’s. We’re all about a good time!”
The guys are also working on a new venue slated to open in early 2021. So look out for Loosie’s Diner & Bar also in Mornington.
