Blacksheep, Newtown

[ 4 ] May 2, 2012 |

An unsuspecting new bar has popped up on the main King St drag of Newtown, where Funky Bar once stood. Blacksheep quietly opened its doors a few weeks ago, adding to the steadily expanding portfolio of quirky small bars in Sydney’s inner west. Dimly lit by chandeliers and tea candles in mason jars, the décor is a sort-of indie luxe. Dark wood, leather armchairs, velvet tapestry wallpaper, a fireplace and a moose head add to the cosy ambience, making it a perfect watering hole for the fast-approaching winter.

The cocktail menu is impressive, starting at $13 for classics, prices go up to $15 and $18 for some really unique concoctions – try the Voodoo Doll, and you’ll find half a passionfruit set alight in your martini glass. Their wine list is expanding and an extensive bar menu is also on offer. A selection of light snacks and larger meals by chef Liam Rooney includes sliders, grilled corn, pulled pork rolls and an amazing banoffee tart. With a gorgeous fit-out, cheap eats and fantastic cocktails, you’ll be sure to find me camped out in an armchair by the fireplace all winter long. Meet me there!

    I tried Black Sheep on the weekend, it’s great. Feels a bit like a sexier version of it’s predecessor Funky bar.

    Arrogant bar staff that Won’t make the cocktail that you request even though they state they will on the menu. Rude presumptuous, arrogant and low class. Had a guy playing acoustic versions of Metallica songs. We spend a lot on good drinks and entertainment but will never come back.

    We made several visits to this bar during our few weeks in Newtown. The live guitar music on the Wednesday nights was exactly to our taste,. The, heavily tattooed, staff were polite, knowledgable and helpful.
    A great friendly small bar .
