Called the Trocadero Room, the new joint has taken over the former HiWay digs on Enmore Road and is the place to catch up-and-coming bands, DJs, and comedy shows. Feel like a beer and boogie under disco balls after your shift? You can do that there, too.
Spearheaded by Pasan Wijesena and Russell Martin, the Trocadero Room is named after the OG entertainment venue Trocadero on King Street, which was the spot to be in the 1940s. The team is keen to bring some of that magic back to the Inner West.
“When I was younger I loved having some smaller places to check out new bands or DJs, or watch obscure movies and late night shows," said Wijesena.
"Hopefully we can help bring a touch of that back with the Troc and add to the growing live music scene of the Inner West. People need a reason to get out and about, that’s experiential as well as about eating and drinking.”
As well as late-night balmy action, come for jazzed-up retro cocktails: Frozen Midori Illusions, Frozen Negronis spiked with OJ, and Cosmopolitians.
In more fun news, at the front of the Troc is “Enmore’s smallest pub”, called the Magpie, which is inspired by classic pubs and sports bars. Stroll on in for a ploughman’s plate, pint of beer, and catch a game of sport before a live gig.
