Down N' Out
After running pop-ups around Sydney for two years, Down N’ Out Burger settled into this permanent space in August 2018. And this spot has a fully stocked bar.
The burger joint’s second permanent spot (the first opened in Ryde in 2017) is in a second-floor space in the CBD.
There’s a double Wagyu beef burger with cheese, jumbo American pickles, onions and a tangy secret sauce. And a juicy, perfectly seasoned fried-chicken burger with house ranch dressing. You can also get the wild, piled-high burger specials that got Down N’ Out its cult status. Like the Ape Style, the towering burger made with a deep-fried cheese patty and fries on top of the usual Wagyu beef patty and accoutrements.
Craft beers are on tap and there’s a cocktail menu featuring burger-inspired options such as house-made bacon-infused whisky and jalapeno tequila.
The entrance is unassuming – you might even say hidden – with nothing to signpost it except for a neon “Bar” sign and an arrow at the top of the stairs. Inside there are pinball machines and an arcade machine loaded with ’90s classics such as Street Fighter. Ren & Stimpy and Thunder Cats play on TV screens, and cartoons are painted on the bar.
