Two Wrongs is a lavishly kitsch venue that is a restaurant first of all, but also a dive bar. Its owners call the experience, “fine diving”.
From the crystal glassware and the Versace cutlery, to the all-male bartender line-up and the option to play Nintendo while you wait for your table, everything is shamelessly absurd. Renaissance artwork on the walls is covered in graffiti blacklit with UV lights. Bright-pink bar stools line the bar, and a trash-filled shopping trolley serves as a host stand by the front door.
Beers come in cans only, except for a limited selection on tap which pours in two sizes: a 285-mililitre pot or a 473-mililitre “Booj” which resembles a glass tinnie and measures halfway between a pot and a pint.
The menu is designed to be approachable fine dining. Sharing options include mac’n’cheese with truffled popcorn; soft-shell crab cones with papaya and miso; and a trio of pulled-pork filled doughnuts. For something bigger, there’s beef short ribs with broccoli, beer and nettle. For dessert, there’s a Kinder Surprise-inspired egg that involves white chocolate, passionfruit and macadamia.
