SYDNEY | Earl’s Juke Joint is oh so *insert your city’s hipster suburb of choice here*. There’s an old butcher’s shop on King Street in Newtown, which from the street simply looks like a shut down old butcher’s shop. Open the front door however, and you’re greeted with a very dimly lit, narrow space featuring an 11 metre long bar and a lively atmosphere.

Earl’s Juke Joint is named after Earl Palmer, the New Orleans drummer who created the backbeat for rock’n’roll, and while there are New Oreleans flourishes here and there, a themed bar this is not. Earl’s Juke Joint is run by former Shady Pines Saloon manager Pasan Wijesena and aims to be “a good bar [that’s not] too dictated by anything”. We’ve been on several occasions and have no hesitation in saying that on this front, it delivers.

The music is an eclectic collection of genres from various eras – one moment you’re listening to Wu Tang, the next it’s some 1950s Rock & Roll followed by Bluegrass. The drinks are fantastic, be it the craft beers and thoughtful wines or the excellent cocktails made using house spirits or whatever brand you want to select from the extensive range of craft spirits that line the wall. We always visit with a plan to have just one or two drinks, but somehow always find ourselves sipping on whiskeys we haven’t tried before a short while later.

It’s mostly about the drinks here, but there are bar snacks – peanuts or a charcuterie board from Bloodwood across the road.

Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
