Crooked Tailor

This Hills District small bar has the drinks and bar bites thing sewn up

It was a serious good news week when the Crooked Tailor opened up a small bar in the Hills District. It’s by the same crew as Pocket, Stitch and Button (see what they did there) and they’ve done a bang-up job of transplanting the invitingly shoehorned-in feel of so many inner-city bars to Castle Hill.

The glass-fronted bar packs out nightly with a local crowd looking for an offline gathering place for a catch-up and round of drinks that isn’t at an unflatteringly lit, carpeted hotel. Ferns and trailing plants green up the white walls of a front room filled with chesterfield lounges. Check out seasonal drink specials scrawled on butcher’s paper next to the bar – Mother’s Ruin (gin, sloe gin, citrus and passionfruit) is a breezy summer drinker. Feeling peckish? Opt for burgers, salads, fries (particularly the polenta variety) and pork crackling from a pub fare menu with an experimental streak.
