Time Out Sydney

An unpretentious city bar where the music flows as freely as the drinks

Rumour has it that Mojo Record Bar is Sydney’s most popular first date venue. It might be true – it’s extremely comfortable, there’s enough cool posters on the walls and record singles on the ceiling to keep conversation flowing and the drinks menu is safe enough to offer something for everyone. But to call Mojo a ‘date bar’ would undersell its many excellent attributes. We love it because it’s not pretentious, the staff serve up banter with their drinks and they play good music. It helps when you’re out the back of a record store (hence the name). Plus – and this is what we like most – Mojo is doing its own thing, a quality to admire in a world that favours following trends, regardless of over-supply. Mojo keeps the menu simple by offering three pizze and the drinks menu is short, opting for the smaller suppliers over the bigger guys. Mojo, keep doing what you’re doing.
