Photo: Quentin Jones Whether pint or pina colada, this suburb has bar options for all, writes Ellen Connolly. N ewtown is renowned for its pub culture and a wander along King Street showcases some of the best. Springing up among them are new additions -- small boutique bars that have added a sophisticated edge to the suburb. The newest is Bench, a cool little wine bar at the trendy south end of King Street, and opposite it is the Moose, a dimly lit and funky cocktail bar, perfect for a romantic winter rendezvous. ''These little bars are nice and relaxed and have a really personalised service,'' says the manager of the Moose, Diane McDonald. ''I think that was missing in Newtown.'' Also on King Street is Corridor, a stylish yet relaxed two-level cocktail and wine bar that has fast become a local hero. It's wedged between the Marlborough, an old stalwart, and Kuleto's, best known for its cocktail happy hour. Corridor is furnished in old chesterfield couches, and serves tapas-style food (try the signature mezze plate) and classic-style cocktails ($16). Live music plays most nights. ''Newtown is becoming quite trendy,'' says owner Tess Robens, who recommends ordering the Banana Old Fashioned, made from Corridor's home-made banana- infused rum. ''We're like a mini version of Surry Hills, but not nearly as cramped.'' Madame Fling Flong is not a new bar but it's a perennial favourite. With old sofas and lampshades, it is often compared to Melbourne bars. In summer, one of the best places to be in Newtown is the roof bar at Zanzibar where patrons can sip on a Long Island Iced Tea and peer down on the rooftops of one of Sydney's oldest suburbs. Pub culture remains a drawcard, too, and among the most popular is the Marlborough. It has a bistro, a bustling bar, a stage for live cover- bands, a beer garden and a balcony for smokers. The Union Hotel offers similar old-school pub values with multiple bars, a bistro, beer garden, and free pool on Tuesday. Or there is the sprawling Bank Hotel, which continues to attract an eclectic mix of people. For music lovers, the 126-year- old Sandringham -- the Sando to locals -- continues to attract live bands. The Whitlams played their first gigs there. Situated where iconic gay pub, the Newtown Hotel, used to stand is Freaky Tiki, a quirky -- and temporary -- bar that combines a Halloween theme with a Polynesian-grunge setting. It specialises in rum-based cocktails and bowls of punch ($15 for two), and has a side room with an air-hockey table, pool tables and pinball machines. Sydneysiders have until the end of next month to enjoy it, before the hotel closes for a major refurbishment, says the general manager of the new development, Toby Wilson. He says the establishment will reopen next year as a pub. Given the success of Freaky Tiki, there may well be a special area in tribute to it.
