MELBOURNE | Sloth Bar is a great spot in Footscray for those looking to hang out somewhere that’s completely unpretentious and just enjoy a good drink with friends. Walk inside and you’ll find a small, dark venue. Bar, a few tables and some stools. Don’t be deceived by the small bar space though, as there’s a lot more to Sloth Bar than meets the eye.

Walk through to the next room and you’ll find a small beer garden strewn with fairy lights and a mish mash of furniture – kind of like a back yard that’s been set up for an impromptu party with friends. Head up the stairs and the various rooms of what we can only assume was a house at one stage feel very much like a house. Think lounge rooms with couches, wallpaper, paintings and the like. Further up is the balcony, which gives a great view of the street life on Barkly Street.

Of course before you’ve decided which of the zones you want to settle in to you’ll want a drink. The bar features a respectable range of wine, spirits and beers. Beer taps feature more mainstream, accessible options while the fridge contains some craftier drops in cans and bottles.

There’s no kitchen here, but you’re allowed to bring in your own food or order in from any one of the many quality nearby restaurants. Music depends on the day. On Tuesday it’s open mic night, Friday & Saturday there’s DJs, and acoustic sessions on Sundays.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. 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.
