Darlie Laundromatic located on Palmer Street in Darlinghurst has been gone for a while. In between the transitions between owners, there was a fire in the venue and its taken a while for them to clean up and rework the space. If you’ve been to Darlie Laundromatic before, the new iteration is a sleekly mature small bar housed in a townhouse. There’s plenty to like here, comfy lounges and seats out front and even a backyard space where they grow the mint used at the bar (now we want one for our backyard).
Lights on, Bar’s Open. The facade’s the same and if you didn’t know a small bar was here, well, now you do.
Inside is effusive blue and orange cast – you’ll note the legacy taps along the one wall. They’re a holdover from the venue’s past as a laundromat. Naff.
Wandering down the back, you’ll get to the bar. Its a well stocked bar with lots on offer. We spot Tequila Arrette, Melbourne Gin and more.
Wander to the backyard and you’ll get a space for 10. It a nice outdoor setting and the clothesline/washing drying mural reminds you of the “laundromat”.
A look at some of the beer range that’s here at Darlie Laundromatic. There’s Sierra Nevada and a couple of craftbeers. That rogue hazelnut one is pretty good drinking.
A look at the Darlie Laundromatic cocktail Menu. It’s a short list but you can always ask for one of the classic drinks. We loved that most were under $14 with the grapefruit Martini coming in at $16.
(L) Pomegranate Mojito $13 – Mount Gay White Rum, French Pomergranate liquer with fresh limes, pomegranate (R) Grapefruit Martini $16– vermouth, orange bitters, belvedere vodka, fresh grapefruit.
Mezcal Old Fashioned $14 – Agave Syrup, Tequila Arette Reposado and Mezcal Amores. A delicious smoky Mezcal cocktail.
Fireball Sour $13 – Cinnamon infused Whiskey and Raspberry. A too easy funtime drink that just about everyone will love.
Darlie Laundromat is a intimate styled smallbar; we liked it heaps and the cocktails were priced right. There’s a plentiful selection of beers and a good selection of wines at $7. Dropped in after dinner so there wasn’t much scope for eats but there’s sliders and charcuterie boards on offer. The front area’s comfy lounge sette is the bar hotspot being a comfortable loungey barhopper heaven. A skip and hop from Mr Crackles too. Relaxing.
