Bar Fly: The Bearded Tit

183 Redfern Street, Redfern (02) 8283 4082 thebeardedtit.com
Sydney’s arts community are flocking to this new Redfern small bar, named for a unique Eurasian songbird, rather than a hirsute mammary.

Beyond artsy types, you can expect it to be jam-packed with quirky carnie curios.

Owners Joy Ng, Pete Manwaring and Emma Price thumb their noses at hipster bar conventions, down to turning the ubiquitous deer head into a mounted deer rear, complete with strategically placed red bow.

You can indulge in nicely balanced cocktail classics, from a Grey Goose Vodka Martini ($16) to a lip-smacking Maker’s Mark Whisky Sour ($17), knowing that...

...when you do need to use the facilities, they’ll be free from gendered assumptions.

Even the eats are community-minded, utilising local restaurants like Wah Fung and Lorentto Pizzeria, then plating your meal behind the bar.

Collaborative eats - like Pete’s Crispy Chicken ($14) and Joy’s Happy Beans ($14) - scrub up nicely against on-tap Murray’s Angry Man ($8.50) or bottled Czech beer Celia ($9).

(Keep your eyes on their website for performance/art events - on the night I drank & dined I was entertained by the incomperable Christa Hughes.)
