Another new Sydney small bar to get along to is Stitch Bar. Stitch Bar is so cool the Fonz wouldn’t get in. Unless you were looking for it, you wouldn’t know it existed. The entrance is disguised with a fake tailor’s office through which you pass to a set of stairs that descends into a surprisingly large space. Immaculately designed, the hoods of old Singer sewing machines hang from the ceiling behind the bar and the walls are papered with pages from books from a bygone era, including pages from sewing machine manuals. The food menu (look at BotF Bar Review) is succinct with burgers, hot dogs and sides.
Summer’s having one last crack in Sydney and the yachts are abounding on the harbour. illiards and bladdamasta enjoyed a balmy evening, punctuated by plenty of horn work from our ferry master as he negotiated the mid-week water warriors. One day, we’ll t-bone a yachtie.
The beer du jour was Beez Neez. I’ve felt that this was a little bit of a gimmick and a quick google indicates that it actually is. Our favourite brewers at Matilda Bar don’t hide that this was originally a one-off for the directors of Capilano Honey one Christmas. Beez Neez is a wheat beer with that is softened with a dollop of honey. It’s a really good summer beer. Not too wheaty and the addition of the honey is by no means cloying or dominating. Get into it.
