Fringe bar in Paddington offers a great range of hearty meals for under $15, including pizza, lasagne, steak and salads. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and the eclectic decor includes chandeliers, red velvet chesterfield style armchairs and arty black and white photos. Fringe is a great place for casual dining and with two levels of bars to choose from, its also a great place to kick on for drinks with friends afterward.
It may open early (happy hour from 4pm until 9pm on a Friday) but this bordello with fringed lampshades and exposed brick walls rocks on into the night with live gigs. Trivia nights and comedy nights make for quieter times where you could order a great bangers and mash.
