Tailors on Central
The 'home of $5 pasta', or so they say

Surry Hills

(02) 9281 4178

Strolling past Tailors, you'd be forgiven for mising it. From the outside it could almost pass for one of the Foveaux street clothing stores. Incidentally, we're not 100% sure but we think the name is in deference to the area's prominence in the clothing trade. Step up a little from the street and you're in the large rectangular bar/restaurant, fitted out with faux-chrome chairs and tables in a slightly formal layout. We think it could benefit from a little breaking up of the open layout - it seems a bit too much like the staff canteen for us, really. A few dividers here and there would probably serve to hem i the atmosphere a little - I don't know about anyone else, but I often like to hide out when I'm having a quiet beer, and there's no chance of that here. We haven't tried out the cheap pastas yet, but for $5 you can't go that far wrong, surely? There's free pool on, If I remember correctly, Tuesdays, and DJs every other Saturday. It's off the main drag so the crowd is usually folks who've deliberately set out to come here, such as local office workers. If you work in the area, give it a try. Myself, I prefer the more homely KB just round the corner on Foveax.

The band on Wednesday totally rocks! But why Wednesday? Why not Friday? Weird..........

They have renovated and changed the menu so I am not sure whether it is under new management, but is worth a shot. Went there for lunch and the food was pretty good and the staff are friendly and efficient. Don't know about the karaoke on Friday nights (that is so 80's). If they want people to actually go there at nights, get a decent band that entertains the crowd and plays songs we all know. Is that such a difficult concept? They've got everything else right. Here's hoping....
