Letting Off Some Steam: Great Subiaco Bars For After Work Drinks
One of the best things about working in Subi is the fantastic array of venues to unwind at once the day is done. Whether it’s an office celebration, some after hours socialising or just an excuse to catch up with some friends and blow off a bit of steam, check out this list for some great places to visit next time you’re looking for an after work hangout venue.
The Subiaco Hotel
This iconic institution it alwaysl a solid option for a few post work beverages with the crew. Big enough to comfortably seat everyone that wants to join in, make sure you get there for their $5 happy hour drinks specials that start at 5:30 on weekdays. We’re also big fans of their wedges with sour cream and sweet chilli sauce - so retro and so delish!
Refuge Small Bar
Prefer your bars small, your atmosphere intimate and your drinks crafty? Nestled right next to the train station, Refuge Small Bar brings a bit of hipster small bar cool into the heart of Subi. Choose from a wine, cocktail or one of the 12 craft beers on tap and peruse their great bar food menu if you’re feeling a bit peckish.
$3.50 pints. Need we say more? Well, it turns out the Vic has more to offer than just some very wallet-friendly drink prices. A classic pub vibe and a solid bar food menu make this venerable local institution a real crowd pleaser suitable to a wide range of different people and occasions.
Recently taken over by the folks from Bivouac, this idiosyncratic local bar/eatery has been given a fresh feel and a great new menu. Serving fantastic drinks alongside an impressive selection of upmarket bar food - think house-made terrines, salumi, corned-beef toasties and melt-in-your-mouth duck liver parfait - Juanita’s is the perfect location if you’re in the mood for something a little more stylish when knock-off time rolls around.
The Village Bar
Another participant in the recent “beer wars”, you can score yourself a glass of wine or pint of frosty cold beer at the Village Bar for a mere $4. They also have a good roster of weeknight specials including a quiz & $10 cheeseburger night on Tuesdays and a spicy wings competition on Thursdays, so there’s plenty of great value on offer to keep you and the work crowd entertained, fed & watered.
