Stitch Bar, Sydney

Located on 61 York St, through a small entrance with hanging shirts and down some stairs you will find Stitch Bar.

Old school kitchen

Last week in between dinner and a movie, to kill time we went to Stitch Bar and boy do I wish we had more time to kill! Stitch Bar is a unique, small, dark bar which plays tunes that you wouldn't usually hear and offers a great choice of alcoholic beverages.

We arrived around 7pm on a Saturday night, it wasn't too busy so were seated immediately, once seated we were asked for our credit card to start a tab and I guess to prevent us from leaving without paying (not that we would ever do that).

The decor was quite interesting, think 1930's Southern America. I am sure in it's past life the table we sat at  was a sewing machine table. For larger groups there are two small rooms one set up to look like an old school southern american kitchen (funnily enough I have the same spoon holder that was hanging up on the wall) the other looks like a parlour room.

The menu consisted of burgers, hot dogs, tacos, curly fries, a number of cocktails, wine, scotch and whiskies. We ended up ordering a rose and the cocktail of the month - Prudence. The drinks were nice but were quite pricy, cocktails average around $18.

Cocktail of the month

Overall I rate Stitch bar 9/10, I plan on going back to try either a burger or hot dog and maybe a cocktail or two!
