This atmospheric basement drinking den adjacent to Mojo Music, one of the best (of the sadly dwindling few) record stores in the city, combines two of our favourite things: alcohol and music. The cocktail list ticks all the boxes and we’re particularly smitten with their Georgia Julep, a mix of cognac and peach liqueur, laced with fresh mint. They do a superb mojito, too. But this is a pretty chilled out kind of bar, and many punters simply drop in for a beer. Fortunately, there’s a bunch of craft ales to choose from Young Henry’s is brewed just down the road in Newtown, while others are shipped up from Tassie. Given you’ve got to walk past rows of vinyl to actually get to the bar, you’re welcome to peruse the collection for worthy additions to your own collection while nursing your pint if you wish. Unsurprisingly, the soundtrack plays a big part in the experience at Mojo. The walls are covered in classic album covers and there is a selection of over 700 records at the DJ’s disposal. Expect smooth sounds that span the decades, without a cheesey top 40 hit in earshot (aside from the odd retro-tastic number). The only downside to the venue is that there’s no food available not at the time of writing, anyway. But you’re free to order in a pizza, or at the very least crack open a bag of crisps if the munchies strike. It’s more about the music here, anyway.
