Bar Fly: Social-Laneway

Amie Barbeler found some community spirit(s) this week...


You'll have trouble finding a bar in Sydney with a more welcoming vibe than this cosy wedge of community spirit. Day to day, Redfern Village's Social-Laneway, located fifty metres from the train station, operates as a busy cafe/espresso bar; but come Thursday and Friday nights, the bar is transformed into a lively (but still intimate) hive of music, performance, artists, food and drink. You won't find an extensive wine or cocktail list here, just the option of a few reds, whites, beers or ciders. However, my date and I found that the Spy River Estate Sav. Blanc ($9.50) was the nicest wine we'd ever tasted.

The bar has partnered with neighbouring restaurants, meaning that if you're hungry, you have the option of ordering elsewhere and having it delivered directly to you at Social-Laneway. Alternatively, the bar does offer some food in-house, like the light but filling creamy chicken pie with garden salad ($11). Yum.
