The Foxtrot

28 Falcon St, Crows Nest NSW
Visit website

A unique location for Friday night drinks, located in Sydney’s Lower North Shore. The Foxtrot features three separate areas, each with a different personality, including a ‘sitting room’ and an indoor roof top terrace. Complete with urban murals deer antlers, synthetic grass and Victorian garden chairs, it’s a one of a kind space. Relax and unwind with an impressive “Jar-tini” (cocktail in a jar), or try one of the many beers, ales or ciders that are on offer.

The Foxtrot Review

Review by Megan Macfarlane

Unless you knew it was there, you could easily walk right past the white double doors and opaque glass that hides the beautifully created and quirky bar, Foxtrot. With its four separate areas, each with varying personalities, Foxtrot adds a unique flavour to the ‘small bar’ scene. It is warm and inviting from the moment you step inside the study-like foyer.

The main (and only) bar is a unique mix of urban cool and old country bar decor, complete with edgy, statement mural on one wall and deer antlers on the other. Exposed bricks and timber beams give an earthy feel with dim lighting and tall, dark timber tables providing a classy, yet relaxed mood. At the bar you can find friendly bar staff and a variety of wines, beers, ales and ciders. There is also a small but fantastic cocktail (Jar-tinis – $15-$18) menu. Keeping with the unique, earthy feel cocktails are served (and made) in old glass jars (hence the name). Simply fantastic!

The “sitting room”, just past the bar, is filled with comfy, old velvet arm chairs, small wooden tables, lamps and mirrors. This cosy space is great for friends to chat the night away or relax after a long week with a jar-tini or two. Head upstairs from the bar and you’d be forgiven for thinking you had just stepped onto a roof top garden. A carpet of synthetic grass, Victorian white lawn furniture, a large open window, edgy mural, ladders and rose vines complete this “garden” space and continue the quirky feel of this unique bar.

There are, unfortunately, a few negatives. Its small size limits seating, forcing people to congregate in the main thoroughfares, which can cause a few traffic problems when getting to and from the bar or from room to room. The food, pizza ($20), is not fantastic; with very few toppings and a lot of cheese, it leaves much to be desired.

Although their drinks menu is not as extensive as I had expected (and hoped), the cocktails that were available were fantastic (I highly recommend the Pomegranate Sour–Sweet: bitter, sour and packing quite a punch), the wine was great and there’s a beer for everyone (except perhaps the guy who just wants a ‘frothy’ on a Friday). The crowd is mixed but mature, from people of all ages out for a relaxing drink after work, to younger groups having drinks before heading elsewhere to party. After only a few hours, Foxtrot made a fantastic impression and I will definitely be revisiting this gem in the near future (especially to check out the Sunday Jazz-Pop session).

Foxtrot is just like the dance it is named after - smooth, progressive and continuously moving. Whether it’s for after work drinks, a catch up with friends or birthday drinks, Foxtrot absolutely has hit (most of) the right notes.
