DRINK IN A DIVE BAR

Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Delicious On Sunday -

Re­mem­ber that place you couldn’t re­mem­ber go­ing to? It was prob­a­bly a dive bar. Dark, dingy, and in­vari­ably sticky, dive bars are a city’s un­der-ap­pre­ci­ated late night gems. Try Syd­ney’s brown liquor dens like Frankie’s, Mary’s or com­par­a­tive new­bie the Ram­blin’ Ras­cal Tav­ern, or Bris­bane’s de­light­fully grungy Brook­lyn Stan­dard or Frankie’s Queens­land cousin, Lefty’s Old Time Mu­sic Hall. While in Mel­bourne the vote is di­vided be­tween old favourites like Cherry or next gen­er­a­tion dives like The Beau­fort or Heart­breaker. Two rules: don’t go in a suit – well, un­less it’s a denim jump­suit – and if you can’t re­mem­ber if you had fun, check your In­sta for all the ev­i­dence you’ll need to delete.
