Suburban Social Neighbourhood Bar and Kitchen


bar food

Good food, craft beer and staff that remembers your name. That’s the rationale behind Suburban Social Neighbourhood Bar and Kitchen in Chapel Hill.

A relaxed vibe and commitment to Australian producers characterises Suburban Social. The beers on tap are Newstead Brewing Co and Stone & Wood, and the wine is all-Australian. Even the soft drinks are supplied by Melbourne outfit Capi; the spiced cola goes down well on a hot day.

The food is well-executed gastropub fare: burgers; flathead fish tacos; and the tongue-in-cheek Suburban Snack Pack that replaces doner-kebab meat with slow-cooked chicken. Hotheads shouldn’t miss the “RIP” spicy chicken wings, and there is takeaway lunch for those on the go.

The bar sits in a light-filled space off Moggill Road. There are turquoise tiles fronting the bar and a graffitied wall mural. Dadson and Dillon did the fit-out themselves, recycling structural timber and other materials from the space’s previous incarnation as a home-brew store.
