The sports bar for people who like drinking more than sport is back, screening the Tour de France at a Fitzroy warehouse
Who doesn’t love looking at lycra-clad, athletic men making their sweaty way through stunning French countryside? Especially when it’s on exceptionally late at night. But whether you love the Tour De France for the spandex or the sport, it’s probably best enjoyed with company who feel likewise, as well as beer and a delicious feed.
Domestique is doing it right. In fact it’s been doing it right for three years running. It's a pop-up bar brought to you by the Shadow Electric gang specifically for those who want to keep tabs on the tour, and anyone else who just doesn’t feel like going to bed. Last year they commandeered the upstairs room of the Wilde on Gertrude Street and this year they're keeping things Fitzroy at the Baron Said. More commonly used for art than sport, but who’s complaining when there's somewhere to go in the middle of the night and in the middle of winter that’s loaded with big screens and beverages?
That’s not all they’ve got. This year you can also expect barbecue, Fancy Hanks BBQ. But if watching dudes in tight pants doesn’t exactly fuel your hunger for smoked meat you can get into the Polish dumplings from Pierogi Pierogi instead. There's also ping pong and DJs, if you get cycling fatigue.
