An eclectic Art Deco bar to unwind in off Chapel Street
The interior of Wonderland looks like the team took all the coolest Art Deco items from their Chapel Street neighbours and combined them into a slick new bar. Funky nostalgia aside, Wonderland has a lot to offer as a south side watering hole.
The friendly, casual atmosphere at Wonderland is helped undoubtedly by the bar’s large outdoor area – the largest on Chapel Street in fact. Walking off the hectic street for a beer in the garden is a welcome respite on a sunny afternoon. If beer isn’t your thing then Wonderland also has a respectable selection of wine and cocktails.
For when it’s cold and you'd rather be indoors, grab a pew at one of the bar’s comfy lounges and relax with a drink and a bite from their menu. There is a stack of small dishes to choose from like pumpkin and parmesan arancini, pulled pork sliders, fried haloumi and barbecue chicken quesadillas (any three from this menu will only cost you $25). There’s also share plates available and function spaces for those looking to celebrate.
Happy hour runs 4-7pm every weekday. That means $5 house wines, $6 schooners and house spirits and $9 pints. Jugs of beer and cider go for $15 on weekends (from noon-4pm on Saturday and all day on Sunday) and DJs spin tunes every Friday and Saturday night from 7pm.
