Live music, affordable cocktails and tasty appetisers
Bar Blaq is a training based restaurant and bar, located in a cosy venue above Lane Cove Plaza.
By day, this venue teaches young people the skills they need to work in the hospitality industry, and in the evening they practice their new formed skills on guests.
What I love most about Bar Blaq is their $10 cocktail menu, which for Sydney prices, is pretty hard to beat! From apple crumble and espresso martinis, to a cosmos, margaritas and pina coladas, there's something to suit everyone's taste.
For atmosphere, there is a live band most Friday nights from 7.30pm to enjoy; when I visited it was Equatorial Principles, a four piece band playing acoustic and electric covers, and they were fantastic.
To find Bar Blaq in Lane Cove Plaza, walk through Central Arcade past Bakers Delight, go up the stairs opposite Pure Flowers and they are on level one.
