Go here for: rock bands playing in an underground jazz bar
The Mary’s empire made its mark on the Sydney hospo scene serving up trashy-but-good American cheeseburgers in grungy settings scattered with dried roses and graffiti that hark back to the ultra ’80s aesthetic of The Lost Boys – but at Mary’s Underground the vibe is dressed up in a jazz bar style. The venue was kind of primed for post-lockdown outings, with tables luxuriating in their own bubbles of space. Here you can catch intimate performances from the likes of Perth rockers Methyl Ethel, the infectious flow of rapper Genesis Owusu, folk and blues man Kim Churchill, as well as shows like Wanted and Wild, a burlesque and circus revue accompanied by a live rock band.
