‘Must See’ Broken Hill Experience

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”20px”][edgtf_separator position=”left” width=”120px” thickness=”3″][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][vc_column_text]Bells Milk Bar is an in tact 1950’s milk bar in South Broken Hill (thanks to Les and Mavis Bell’s 1956 renovation).  It’s famous for its long history, quirky décor, and the ‘out of this world’ old fashioned milkshakes and soda spiders served here.

You can have a similar experience at Bells Milk Bar today as you could have had in the 1950s or 1960s. Imagine sipping a malted milk or traditional soda spider amidst the original chrome fittings and furniture while listening to the ‘latest’ 1950s music or reading a 1956 magazine. You can choose from over 50 original recipe traditional drink flavours, and they’re all made using Bells own handmade syrups and cordials, manufactured in small batches right here on the premises, just like they always have. History has been restored, refreshed and revived, and stepping into the multi-tourism award-winning Bells Milk Bar is like stepping back in time.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”42px”][edgtf_icon_list_item icon_pack=”font_awesome” fa_icon=”fa-check” font_weight=”” title=”Open 7 Days”][/edgtf_elements_holder_item][/edgtf_elements_holder][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row content_width=”grid” css=”.vc_custom_1486725149387{padding-top: 120px !important;padding-bottom: 120px !important;background-color: #f2f0ea !important;}”][vc_column][edgtf_elements_holder number_of_columns=”two-columns” switch_to_one_column=”1024″][edgtf_elements_holder_item item_padding=”1% 11% 0 0″ target=”_self” item_padding_768_1024=”0% 0% 10% 0″ item_padding_600_768=”0% 0% 14% 0″ item_padding_480=”0% 0% 25% 0″][vc_column_text]
