Redfern Surf Club
Alright dudes, there is a gnarly new neighbourhood stomping ground in Redfern which has some serious hang ten vibes. Okay, so Redfern might not exactly be beachside but the Redfern Surf Club has now opened its doors on the sunny corner of Botany Road and Henderson Road and we're actually diggin' it.
This fresh gem is the brainchild of Yannick Maslard (aka the former GM of faves Cliff Dive and Oxford Art Factory) who's giving the people of Sydney a local club with the feels of a backyard Barbie at your mate’s place.
You'll want to head ‘straight to the pool room’ and check out this weird and welcoming space complete with an epic pool table, an old-school TV set playing cult surf flicks, a taxidermied ibis watching over the bar (just casually) and a shrine to the likes of Prince, Phil Collins, and the great fictional surf god himself Bodhi (aka our fave boy Patrick Swayze rocking his long beachy locks in 90’s film Point Break).
The ‘made-for-good-times’ drinks list is headlined by RSC’s cheeky signature Can Cocktails, yes, your cocktail is literally served up in a jazzed up soft drink can, because, well, do it for the 'Gram. You’re going to want to check out the Passiona cocktail which is a concoction of vodka, Passiona and lime served up in our fave childhood soda can.
There are also wines by the carafe and rotating taps of Aussie cold ones, such as The Grifter Brewing Co’s Pale Ale, Batch, Wayward and Akasha. Surf’s up peeps, and we have a feeling you’ll be spending a fair few lazy summer arvos down at this local Aussie haunt.
