The newly opened Korova Milk Bar does not simply mimic the futuristic drug den in A Clockwork Orange; it manages even to outdo Stanley Kubrick's warped vision – and has created a standard of entertainment that has rarely been seen in this country. The film may have inspired the bar's black-and-white mannequin motif, but Korova's uniquely distorted paintwork, based on the art of Felice Verini which sees two-dimensional images cleverly played out in three-dimensional space must be seen to be fully appreciated.
The venue also has employed the services of a World Class Hypnollusionist, James Dehombre. What is a Hypnollusionist you say? It is a performer who is a Master Hypnotist, Master Magician and Master Illusionist! The few Melbournians who have been lucky enough to encounter this Mystery Man in the flesh in Melbourne's most exclusive venues will attest to his skill and entertainment value.
It's the versatility of this entertainment space however that is its real asset. Moving from a comfortable After-Work Cocktail Lounge from 5pm and then turning into one of the cities most prominent late night music venues from 10pm.
The most fiendish "droogs", however come to Korova for Moloko, potent fruit/ice-cream-based cocktails satirically named after macabre subject matter. Evening hours are a treat at Korova with James Dehombre performing while guest Dj's regularly appearing to play a multitude of music that varies from rolling minimal tech rhythm's through to a multitude of styles of house music.
