Recently visited this "hole in the wall" joint with the promise of amazing night comedy and I wasn't disappointed. I haven't laughter that hard in ages. One of the best ways to spend a Monday night, hands down. The food and vide were great. Please visit this place.

It is like stepping back in time! The wonderful decor is retro and eclectic! Lots of great little corners to have a quiet drink. The music was good and a few people were up and dancing. Some goods beers, wines and cocktails were in offer! A fun quirky bar just off the main drag on Crown St!

Go if you like: awesome happy hour $, friendly staff, quirky atmosphere, delicious pizza. Don't go if you like: fancy things, spacious bathrooms.

Durring my time in Sydney i went here countless times for after work drinks. the pizzas are always great and very well priced. There's always something interesting to try from the bar and the setting is cute and understated. perfect for a first date or a few beers and pizza with a small to medium group of friends.

Been only on Tuesday and Saturday but they have something different every night for all tastes, including stand up comedy. The pizza night is a must, 3$ pizza and, as Italian, I can confirm their pizza is delicious.

Neighbourhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighbourhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
