Former Operations Manager at Establishment Luke O’Donohue has opened a new bar and bistro on Chalmers Street, Surry Hills. Tipple Bar has a range of craft beer – including its very own Tipple Lager – and cocktails on offer as well as a street food-inspired bistro.
The fit out comprises of distressed walls and furniture all cleverly put together with a pop mural taking over 2 walls by Australian Pop artist Ben Frost. The music ranges from 1950’s swing to urban depending on the day with a record player and 500 strong vinyl collection which, Luke adds “we encourage our guests to come down, browse the collection and put on what they want. There is everything from Miles Davis to ACDC. It makes for a fun organic environment where the customer is the hero.”
