Still coolsing it up nicely
The tricky thing about this small bar is finding it, but hey - no sign, no line. The entrance is simply a small doorway behind a friendly bouncer with zero attitude. The rest is easy-peasy. There's no cocktail menu or wine list to linger over. They don't do cocktails and don't be expecting a wine glass for your sauvignon blanc - it's all about wine in tumblers, mixer drinks and Coopers longnecks. The main bar area, with its spray-painted skeletons, caged lightbulbs and gritty ambience seems much less popular than the wooden outdoor deck, even on a particularly wet and chilly evening. Place yourself on one of the low lounges or high stools, lend your ears to some hip hop (DJs double as bartenders) and enjoy the intimacy of this no-fuss bar.
