Venue type: Bar
If you know the name you'll know the address and vice versa.
Fiftyfive is the antidote to chain pubs, TABs, pokies and uniformed staff. It's a proudly independent operation with an emphasis on good beer and good vibes. Several beer taps and loads more in the fridge, as well as cocktails, wines and all the usual liquid relaxants.
Comfort food is served up, DJs play, and hilarity ensues.
Looking for a funky, eclectic little bar-lounge to catch up with mates? Or maybe a pitstop between a couple clubs? E Fifty Five is for you. I always make a point of dropping by when I'm in the city, although "dropping by" often becomes a night-long affair. That's not surprising, considering the welcoming vibe in this place.
The bar staff are friendly, the clientele are very relaxed and easygoing and the music is varied enough to please anyone, with the DJs playing electronica, RnB and hip hop, reggae and cruisy ambient tunes. The decor has a very uni-student feel, with some pretty funky artwork and some comfy, homily couches.
Oh, by the way, make sure you order a Long Island Ice Tea. They're damn potent but damn good!
