Black Penny - Surry Hills
Fully Licensed (no BYO)
Situated on the corner of Bourke and Cleveland Streets, Black Penny is a small bar, restaurant, gallery and live entertainment venue all wrapped up in one. The focus, according to the Black Penny's owner, Damian Dlugolecki, is to keep things local and this philosophy extends not only to the menu and all-Australian wine list but also to the artwork on the restaurant's walls (painted by Damian himself). Live music features three nights a week, so check the website for further details, plus, there's a DJ booth for more serious beats.
