The Trocadero Room is a live music venue from the teams behind leading inner-west cocktail bars Earl’s Juke Joint and Jacoby’s, and late-night Darlo club Cliff Dive. The name is a nod to the original Trocadero Room, a former cinema, dance hall and roller-skating rink that ruled Newtown’s King Street at the turn of the 20th century.

This compact bar channels the golden age of Sydney’s pre-lockout law era. The Troc’ offers a little bit of everything, from DJs to comedy and improv jazz. It’s the kind of place where you can catch your new favourite band, and stick around for a boogie into the early hours of the morning.

One look at the cocktail list here tells you who’s involved. If you can get past that frozen Midori Illusion (we couldn’t), there’s a frozen Negroni churned with orange juice, and a Cosmopolitan if you’re channelling Carrie Bradshaw post-Big on a Saturday night. Think “fun, daggy disco drinks”, but elevated and served at speed.
