The first thing you'll notice at Misfits is its charming retro fit-out. Think neon signs, plaid upholstery and iconic restored mid-century modern design. True to the Redfern locale, this one is a little quirky—but really packs a punch with its food and drink offering.
Head upstairs to find the cocktail lounge where you need to order the chilli margarita cocktail (don’t question it), or knock back a few premium tipples in the hidden private room, which is tucked behind a secret bookcase. We aren’t kidding when we say premium either, with magnum and imperial wine sizing available (and encouraged).
On the menu are top-notch dishes like a charred octopus, with black beans, pops of apple and succulents bathed in a romesco sauce, and pan-fried halloumi with sweet golden raisins, marjoram spice, dukkah and drizzled with a champagne and honey glaze.
There’s even something for a casual dinner, with booth seating and classic pub meals coming over the pass. We’re suckers for a good old classic cheeseburger—with Angus beef, smoked cheese, pickles, ketchup and fries.
