Cause V is for Vinyl (at the Hi-Fi Bar)
Vinyl - it's your pre-drink venue before enjoying live music at the Hi-Fi Bar. Except it's so much more than that.
Okay, so you know they serve drinks, but did you know they serve tapas? And comfort food to quell the hangover? From tacos to chip butty to Wagyu cheeseburger, the kitchen opens at 4pm and you're sure to find something to satisfy.
Vinyl is also a place you can chill out reading issues of Frankie, or Rolling Stones, and you can definitely grab the most current issues local street press. Maybe you have a more competitive spirit? Peruse the selection of games you can play for free ... from cards to Pictionary to chess.
Vinyl also hosts some lower-key gigs than the Hi-Fi Bar - eg Dappers and Dames Summer Swing in early December, where Regular Gonzales will perform, along with hula hooping, burlesque dancing and ukulele playing ladies. Sounds like a perfect Sunday afternoon.
