Sasquatch is the coolest new bar in the Northern Suburbs
From coffee and jafflles in the morning, heros from lunch, and craft beer on tap until late, Sasquatch is the latest and coolest bar in Chermside. Finally there is a place for the young and cool to hang out and have fun.

Opened by a local northside lad who spent (or possibly misspent) his youth hanging out at the Chermside Westfield, He was inspired to create a place people can go to outside of the chain restaurants there and make their own space.

The result is a bar that caters for different crowds at different times. The morning crowd heading to the bus interchange just want something quick on their way to work. You can pop in at lunch for coffee and a light meal. Then at night you can enjoy live music and drinks until midnight.

The menu is pretty simple at the moment. In morning they do jaffles for breakfast and hero sandwiches featuring grilled meat at lunch and dinner. They also serve homemade crisps as a side dish.

The real reason to come her is the beverages. Coffee is the very trendy Cleanskin Coffee Co's and beers are all craft beers. They will have 8 on tap and these beers will change based on availability. There are also at least another 20 bottled craft beers available.

On weekends there will be live music at night on the small stage in the corner of the bar. Sasquatch is pretty much the only place at the moment in the area to really offer this.

The best news is that there is a decent amount of parking for this restaurant. There is some off-street parking behind the bar, which makes all the difference on weekdays, and plenty of street parking in the area in the evening and on weekends. Don't forget, you can park on Gympie Road itself.

While not the perfect bar or restaurant it is by far the coolest place in Chermside at the moment. Later on in the year, they plan to add a fuller menu and also launch a great cocktail menu. This is definitely a place to check out and support and to come back to over time to see how it evolves.
