The Little Guy

Duck in for a barrel-aged Negroni and a bowl of popcorn

This is a Little Guy with a big heart. Glebe’s sweet’n’tiny bar offers a snappy hand-written cocktail list, free spicy popcorn and a big dose of friendly service. There’s free live music every Sunday afternoon, and the crew have been working hard getting a lot of crazy craft beers into the venue both on tap and by the bottle. There’s a rotating tap that showcases a different Aussie craft brew every few weeks, at $5 for a half pint or $9.50 for a mammoth full pint, and 18 craft brews by the bottle, including that crazy feral Hop Dog IPA and the lovely lasses from Two Birds’ Golden Ale. A brief cocktail list (including mulled wine during winter for just $8 a glass) offers a Ginger Gringo Sidecar – a sweet, gingery tequila take on a classic Sidecar. The Blue Blood is the Little Guy’s salute to the Queen Mum: a short mix of Nicaraguan rum, Dubonnet (I say!) and spiced sugar syrup. Unless you’re a little bird, you couldn’t really make a dinner out of the snackettes at the Little Guy (cheese, salumi, olives, nuts, dips), but that free spiced popcorn is certainly a good prop for drinking. And if you do find yourself in the need of ballast, you’re only a five-minute walk from Sloppies – land of crunchy nut corn shakes and hunger-busting sloppy Joes.
