Stuck for date ideas? This Sydney Road favourite has your perfect night sorted with movies, drink specials and a new menu
When you're playing the dating game, having a swag of great date spots up your sleeve is key. And if you've started exhausting your options, then we've got another for you: Tuesdays at The Penny Black. You might know this Brunswick bar and pub as a place to party – but on Tuesdays, it's all about great movies on cosy couches, cheap drinks and food specials.
Entry is free, and when you arrive, you've got some choices to make. Will it be a $5 schooner or $5 bubbles? Will you have a $10 hot dog or will you check out the brand new menu, which includes Cajun fried chicken burgers, Southern-style buffalo wings and slow-cooked pulled pork tortillas?
Then, settle in and get set for the movie, which starts at 8pm. In August, films include The Hangover, Anchorman, Wedding Crashers and Talladega Nights. Nothing too serious in a chilled-out place that doesn't take itself too seriously. It's how date night should be.
