Why The Sidewalk Bar & Grill is special ?

The Sidewalk Bar & Grill is a great for groups of friends, to hang out, for aspiring artists to create, for teachers to share their wisdom and for lone touch screen warriors to defeat their online demons.

You’ll find many odds and ends strewn around The Sidewalk that seem as though they’ve drifted in from the adjacent highway. Then, you realise that everything — from the fluorescent traffic cones to the hubcaps — was placed with intention. Old soda bottles, house plants and flowers along the fences and cement walls; tyres hang in strategic patterns behind the reclaimed wood stage; and light bulbs within abandoned helmets illuminate the long bar. Whether you’re there on a Tuesday or a Saturday, trust that you’ll enjoy yourself. Weeknights, Sidewalk exudes laid-back chill, and weekends, the crowd gets bumping as a rotating roster of DJs spin everything from reggae to hip-hop to swing.
