Lo-Fi was one of the first bars in Sydney to jump on the design obsession of the deconstructed-on-purpose look, which translates to ripped-out ceilings, exposed air ducts and the hiring of local street artists, who adorn the walls with rotating graffiti murals. It’s all stylishly executed – check out the kitsch lamps covered with old Megadeth and Nirvana albums when you order a drink – then make for the al fresco balcony. Commanding a great view over Taylor Square below, it’s covered with astro turf and vintage vinyl furniture. With an art gallery upstairs, Lo-Fi is so on-the-pulse cool, the place literally heaves come the weekend – expect to rub shoulders with grown-up emos and cashed-up advertising and PR execs. Drinks-wise, there are classic cocktails aplenty like Negronis, Dark ‘n’ Stormies and Pisco Sours, but our money is on a frosty beer served in a longneck, preferably on the balcony at dusk. Booya.
