Important things first: the beer. The Darlo Bar has an impressive range on tap, and at super-cheap prices. In a climate of charging $10 and upwards for good craft beer, I was charged a mere $7 for a pint of Vale Ale. I had to actually confirm I was getting a pint before I could believe it.
Housing a lot of beer and wine in a wedge-shaped building (not to mention accommodation) means there's little room to spare, and the Darlo has wisely outsourced its food. Nearby takeaways including Grill'd are on the menu. It does mean a mighty wait at times, but the convenience of being able to order food in is pretty well worth it.
The Darlo is an interesting, friendly, relaxed and kooky kind of place to spend an evening. I will definitely be going back there – I have a couch there already.
