Easy Tiger Brings Funky 1970’s Vibe and Live Music to Oxford Street
Sydney’s small bar and music scene has welcomed a funky new addition with the launch of Easy Tiger this week. Situated in the basement of 106 Oxford Street, Paddington, Easy Tiger is a nod to 1970’s Americana with vintage interiors, bar snacks, retro cocktails and roller-skating waitresses.
Open five nights a week, the hot new venue will play host to a number of regular weekly events with a big focus on great music and a chilled out vibe.
Luke Prout, licensee at Easy Tiger, explains: “Inspired by current music trends and looking to offer something quite unique to what’s currently out there in the small bar scene, my team and I aimed to create a super-comfortable and often cheeky venue that we would love to drink and eat at ourselves.
“Live music was a must-have feature for Easy Tiger. Following the closure of a number of iconic small music venues in recent years, the area was crying out for a new live venue, and we hope to deliver!”
Monday night is True Weekend for those in the hospitality industry, with special offers and BYO vinyl to provide the soundtrack for the night. For those who love a hump day hang out, Walkie-talkie Wednesdays is a must. On arrival, patrons can set up a bar tab and retire to either The Disco or The Den, order drinks on 1970’s walkie talkies and get them delivered to the table by roller-skating waitresses. Things don’t get much cooler than that!
Easy Tiger’s weekly live music night, Meow, will take up residency on Thursdays with rocking music from upcoming bands such as Chicks Who Love Guns, Velociraptor and Bachelor Pad, as well as 1970’s priced food and drinks and a complimentary Sailor Jerry on arrival for just $5 entry. Live music will continue throughout the weekend on Friday and Saturday nights, supporting original acts from around the country.
If all that dancing makes you thirsty, then there’s a great selection of classic cocktails to wet the whistle, from the signature Easy Tiger to A Marvin Gayetime, Oh No, Yoko! And The Bloody Carrie! To share the love with friends, a Punch Bowl is a must, whether it be The Grateful Dead (a take on the classic ‘zombie’) or Solid Gold filled with champagne, Midori and lemonade for an old skool treat.
The food menu is also in keeping with the 1970’s Americana theme, so there’s no rabbit food here! Bar snacks include the naughty but irresistible Bacon Fat Popcorn, Chilli Cheese Fries and Soft Pretzel with Fondue, through to the more substantial Breville Classico toastie, Hick Burger and 1970’s Share Plate that includes the nostalgic vol-au-vents, kiev bites and devilled eggs.
