Weirdest beers on show
Sydney readies for Marquee club launch
By Sacha Delfosse
Awkward Sydney is a hybrid venue that recently opened in Darlinghurst and can operate as a bar, restaurant, fashion studio, art gallery, music room, dance hall or any of the above.
The multi-purpose space is the creation of Fuzz Ali, who proclaimed that the idea behind the venue was to bring talented people together. It has already hosted various art and photography exhibitions.
“I believe that awkwardness leads to fabulousness. I want people to join the family and become a citizen of what I like to call, ’The Empire of the Fabulous’,” Ali said.
The opening night party saw an eclectic mix of people from creative industries who were entertained by a range of singers, artists, dancers and contortionists (pictured above). The venue is also being progressively decorated, room by room, by an artwork in progress by Lamar Powell.
Bar manager Christopher Thomas, who used to work at London’s Soho House, has created a cocktail list that offers a range of classic cocktails such as the Clover Club, Monkeys Gland and Martinez, while also including a selection of seasonal signature drinks.
The food menu has been crafted to match the cocktail selection and features a variety of Italian treats from share plates to pasta dishes to seafood meals and desserts such as ice cream dumpling.
Awkward Sydney is located at 173 Darlinghurst Road, Darlinghurst. Phone 0424 290 568 for further details.
