Bar review: Blue Pine, Larnaca

A beautiful old house sits on a main street on the corner opposite the old GSZ stadium in Larnaca. The house, built in the 1930s, has been transformed in to a little gem that has something for everyone. Blue Pine has been operating since 1989 and has stood strong in its current location since 2004.

The experience is comforting. There’s something about going to an actual house that gives the feeling you are visiting an old friend. When entering, you realise you are at the house of the coolest friend you’ve ever known! It’s clear a lot of thought and effort has gone into the decoration of the place. The wooden furnishings, the piano in the corner and candlelight is calming and the perfect place to just chill out.

Before getting too far, the corner of my eye caught a glimpse of a little room so I went straight in to take a look. To my delight I had walked into The Jack Daniels Room! I was in Jack Daniels’ front room. The comfy couches, coffee table and cool décor (including a saxophone hung on the wall) was screaming at me to grab a seat before anyone else came in. So I did. The room has its own 42 inch TV, absolutely perfect for a reservation with friends to go and watch the football or just have a private little party.

As we made ourselves comfortable the friendly waiter brought us menus. Blue Pine also serves an array of home cooked meals that, from the menu sounded very appetising! However, I was more taken aback at the huge selection of beers and premium whiskeys. I thought to myself that it couldn’t be possible to have so many whiskeys behind the bar. After quizzing the waiter he assured me that whatever I ordered would be available. Being in the Jack Daniels room I felt like I had to have a Jack Daniels but I betrayed Jack and ordered a glass of 15yr Glenlivet. Don’t be fooled in to thinking that Blue Pine is a whiskey and beer bar as they also have a wide variety of cocktails, wines and other spirits.

Having a little look around the place later, it was more of the same. A fantastically decorated bar with care given to both the inside and outside areas. There are two projectors and seven big screens in total if you are a sports enthusiast and want to go watch a game.

Whether it’s for a cosy, chilled evening with friends by a fireplace, attending a live event or going to watch a match, The Blue Pine should definitely be a place that you visit at least once.
