This rollicking, rambunctious bar is like stepping into your mad aunt’s secret salon. There’s an eclectic mix of furniture, from mismatched chairs and tables to highly coveted booth seats, wall-mounted taxidermy and gilded mirrors. There’s even a painted Caravan of Love out in the back courtyard. Situated in what was once the badlands of Redfern, The Bearded Tit plays host to a vibrant mix of uni students, locals and creative arrivistes. The front door proclaims the motto “In Memory Of Now”, which is a fitting sentiment for a night out and the vibe is happy and inclusive. The staff are friendly, there’s a great soundtrack that mixes old and new and the list features excellent wine and beers (including heaps of tasty types on tap). Bonus? Local restaurants deliver straight to the bar.
