Easy Eight Diner and Bar

Located in the small square of land that houses what are now Sydney’s best smallbars, The Barber Shop and Baxter’s Inn is the newly opened Easy 8 Diner. Entry is only from Clarence, you’ll be walking past that Baxter’s Inn queue and then you enter into Mojo Record Bar’s second – a small bar/diner that dishes up fun appealing classic cocktails with a twist and then a complete diner experience in large booths. Easy Eight sits 60 with seats around the venue and along the central bar.

Fernet and Coke $10.

Somewhat uncommon to see much less on tap – fernet’s on tap here and you can get a pretty great fernet and coke for $10. If you haven’t had Fernet, this bartender favourite is an aniseedy european bitter that is both aromatic and medicinal. Its big in Europe. The drinks menu here at Easy Eight did amuse with their names – the WOW 87 references world of warcraft – we didn’t pick the reference but Chris our mate did. We also spotted Ultima on the menu; a reference to Richard Garriot’s classic RPG of the 80’s. WIth a list of 10 cocktails on the menu, Easy Eight offers plenty of reasons to return.

Waffle icecream sandwich with rhubarb

Easy Eight’s Diner menu options are diverse from a great selection of snacks to more robust main sized serves. We’re also a little giddy to see lobster mac and cheese on their menu here. With large plush booths that easily sits 4-6, Easy 8 Diner is an appealing late night option to the Sydney CBD bar scene. Late night dinners and barhops across to the surrounding venues, the team here have now made it just that easier. Get that waffle ice cream sandwich. Good stuff. Great drinks with good friendly service.
