Merivale’s offering Palmer & Co. taps in to the Sydney small bar trend. Palmer & Co. is an underground prohibition style bar, with 1920s style. In fact, they call themselves ‘Legitimate importers of bracing tonics and fortifying liquids’. Who are we to argue?
We can’t help but compare it to Baxter Inn. It certainly has a similar feel. Like Baxters, Palmer & Co. is on the large size for a small bar. But, the space is cleverly divided into nooks and cranny’s, so it feels small and intimate.
This is the kind of bar where you can grab a table and actually chat. Not the type of place where you find yourself screaming across the table. A refreshing change. We love the casual, relaxed, yet charmingly classy old world feel.
We can certainly understand why it’s become a popular fixture on the city small bar scene. We’ve said it before and we’ll no doubt say it again; ‘those Merivale people sure know how to make a good bar’.
Also worth nothing – Palmer & Co. is a good late night (or early morning!) option.
