What used to be Lo-fi is now Middlebar and its been given a new sleek reno – stripped back, warm environs and the venue’s been reworked with a small bar vibe – with the best music and dancefloor too. In short, gin and tunes.

You can sit out on the balcony just there looking out onto Taylor square and soak in the Darlo Vibes. Sandwiched between Standard Bowl and Johnny Wong’s Dumplings, Middlebar is quite appropriately named.

Atmospheric and warm, the new logo and space for Middle Bar is a modern contemporary also and effusively intimate. The dimness is quite date night “venueish”.
