Enmore manages to ensure that going out for a drink has all your bases covered, which is a pretty impressive feat considering the size of this little Inner West enclave. Kick off with drinks in the Warren View Hotel's beer garden, then head to the Queens Hotel or the Duke for seriously scrubbed up pub vibes. Go to Jacoby's for tiki drinks, saunter down the road to the Hideaway, before dancing it all off at the Slyfox. Sorted!

The best bars in Enmore
Take a staycation through a cocktail glass at this Inner West Tiki bar themed for die-hard Twin Peaks fans. Once you’re inside this tropical cabana, you won’t want to leave.
Maybe you never bothered to venture into the Queens in her former days, which is not surprising – it was an underwhelming pub whose major drawcard was a TAB – but now that Merivale have sprinkled some fairy pub-mother magic (and a whole lot of cash) on the place it’s an impressive sight.
Hideaway Bar is a small bar boasting a lo-fi fit out and craft beers on tap, in stubbies and Young Henrys long necks for $10 a pop. They also regularly host live music, so keep an eye on the line-up.
Craft tins from nearby breweries, a globe-trotting range of whiskies and vinyl are the three main drawcards for this Enmore Road bar.
The Duke has had a spruce up, but a respectful one. The wine list is natural leaning and delicious, and they've pretty much left the excellent sheltered beer garden right as it always was, just cleaner.
They still have queer comedy nights at this former dive bar, but it's had a makeover and now hosts DJs, live gigs, and in between serve salt beef bagels from their new in-house kitchen.
The big advantage of this Enmore favourite can be summed up thusly: the beer garden. It's extremely spacious, which is unusual for this densly packed pocket of the Inner West, and it's staunch Swans territory in AFL season.
A bar crawl in Newtown is the ultimate pick'n'mix for a parched Sydneysider. It's also great for anyone who would like the minimum travel time necessary between venues. Newtown's bars are all conveniently spaced along King Street and Enmore Road like some sort of boozy daisy chain.
