Time Out says

We're thanking the pub gods for this four-storey, multi-venue party palace – and with a 24-hour licence

Don’t be mistaken by the heritage-listed status of this Chippendale venue – while the label may conjure up some sort of dusty image, the Abercrombie is anything but. In fact, it’s long been known as a rave cave. And since it reopened in December 2022, it came with a 24-hour licence, late-night pizza slices and epic DJ line-ups. Boogie to everything from techno and DnB to disco and funk house brought to you from the music scenes of London, New York and Berlin. A beer garden and public bar also share the ground floor level. 

The Abercrombie put on a mean special, one of the classics being a weekday happy hour that includes $3 beers, $7 wines and spirits and $10 margies. You know where you’ll find us when the clock strikes 5 on Friday. Budget-conscious uni students can even revel in the thrifty deals, thanks to $5 slices of pizza.  

The action doesn’t stop on the bottom floor, with the Abercrombie action extending to three more floors and two more specialised venues. Head up the stairs where you’ll find Lil Sis; a wine bar and shop inspired by the oh-so-chic Parisian ‘cave á vins’. Up on the rooftop there’s a cocktail bar dishing up citrusy cocktails and marinated olives. Casa Rosa’s Italo-disco status is solidified with disco balls and DJs.
