“Sunday sesh”
Review of The Lodge Wine Bar

The Lodge Wine Bar
Ranked #1 of 8 Nightlife in Balmain

Reviewed August 28, 2016 via mobile

Great little bar for a Sunday session. A little dark inside, but would create the ambiance at night. Only holds around 45 people and has a cool little outside area to sit in the sun. Couple of beers on tap. Run by a couple of nice blokes. Reasonably priced.

Visited by chance with a friend on a wild, rainy night with unsure expectations. But happy to report, like the lashing conditions outside, we were blown away by great service, perfect negronis and unctuous small plates of food.

The surrounds were warm and cozy - think chestnut leather banquettes, small tables, soft lighting. And there was a blues-y soundtrack playing as a carefully selected backdrop to our conversation.

A perfect place for friends, or lovers and those who prefer words to iPhones.

This could well be my new favourite (old) bar, it ticks all the boxes…who knew it was right here on my doorstep and I have only just uncovered it. Highly recommended and will be back with others.

One of my favourite places to go in the inner west, great ambience, friendly staff and a fantastic selection of quality wines

Can speak more highly of this little establishment with Thomas Hoff the proprietor an exceptionally educated and informative host who will make you most comfortable when ever you visit. Makes you want to turn up more regularly than you should ;)

Have been to the lodge a number of times and couldn't fault it, a huge wine list and Tom is extremely knowledgable and makes great recommendations. Food is good, tapas style with plenty of variety and actually pretty cheap for what you get. A really nice place to settle in and have a chat and a few really good drinks. Betas the pub any time.
