Garage Bar & Dining
If you've never been to Garage Bar and Dining, it appears you're missing out. Well, that's what the staff will tell you, anyway. But once you've sat down and had time to drink it all in, you might find yourself agreeing with them. Housed in a converted warehouse (an old garage!), this bar actually fulfils a number of needs.
The (mostly) comfortable furniture has that kind of chic attraction that draws the artsy folk. The surrounding walls and exposed ceiling beams conjure up that designer rustic vibe, while on the walls you'll find many a painting by celebrated Australian artist, David Bromley (who, alas, has moved to Melbourne). All this may seem a little contrived on the outside, but after a few minutes you'll feel quite at ease.
Casual drinkers are also welcomed at Garage Bar, and those out for an evening of cocktails even more so. Try the house cocktail, the Propaganda 21; a mix of 42 Below passionfruit vodka, Chambord, strawberries and sugar syrup. It's been around for a while, so it must be good. That said, you might want to rethink your destination if you plan coming here on a Saturday night for a quiet drink; the place can get quite rowdy once the ?late crowd' move in.
