The Lansdowne is a good choice if you’re in the neighbourhood, coming out of Glebe, or having eaten in that crazy strip of Asian restaurants, catering for students, on Broadway. We stopped by on a Tuesday night and it was pretty quiet. A fun, casual vibe. Amusing rules next to the pool table. A handful of local hipsters.
I thought the wine was pretty expensive: we chose white; the range of prices was from $50 to $60 a bottle. And yet, the Mt Savignan 2017 Yetti and the Kokonut was super delicious and a great way to meet an Australian wine made of the Savignan grape, which has an amusing story of being brought to Australia with people thinking it was Albariño.
So, I loved the wine, and the price is forgiven (ahem, not that I paid for it, Josh treated).
And hence, I found the bar pleasant enough too. I’d be happy to come back, for bar food or more drinks.
