It’s the old Albion Place Hotel, but not as you might remember it. Rebranded in 2019 as Little Nicks Bar and Kitchen, the George Street pub is pitching itself at a slightly younger, less sports-focused crowd than it used to.
The upgraded bar comes with a cute little ghost mascot and a heavy dose of purple neon, making it a fun way to kick off the weekend come clock-off time or for pre-drinks ahead of a gig at the Metro Theatre across the road.
Plenty of drink specials and weekly events are on the cards across the two levels, including drag bingo, Nick’s Little Secret Thursdays, late-night dance parties, daily lunch deals and drink specials.
The kitchen is pumping out similar fare to its former iteration, namely pub favourites and American-style classics: nachos, burgers, parmies and pizza, plus a handful of desserts.
Drinks-wise, there are plenty of taps pouring local and imported beers and Espresso Martinis, a wine list covering Australian and international drops, and a cheerful cocktail menu of classics, colourful signatures and Spritz jugs to share.
