The Little Guy – Glebe
DS has returned safe and sound from a little Christmas holiday and is diving head first into some new drinking spots. When the post-holiday depression sinks its teeth into your Jugular, one thing that may cheer you up is a visit to Glebe’s new kid on the block, The Little Guy.
Positioned on the always entertaining Glebe Point Rd, which never fails to disappoint in the people-watching stakes, The Little Guy is a welcoming spot for casual drinks and a banter over an Old Mount Cider or two. Their hand-written cocktail list changes daily, Thursday could find you sipping on a Jäegermelon (Jäegermeister, Chambord, watermelon and basil), or perhaps on Saturday nights it might be best to knock back one of our favourites, the Scottish Granny, made with freshly squeezed Granny Smith apple juice, Scottish whiskey and mint. We’re sure Gran would approve.
A few thick slices of truffled salami or a wedge of Woodside Capricorn Goats Brie make a perfectly acceptable dinner any day of the week, and the potted duck rillettes spread on slices of sourdough is rich, creamy and quite perfect, especially considering the lack of kitchen. Above the bar hang pots of ferns and herbs, and there is plenty of room to pull up a stool at the bar if the couple of spaces out the back are a little tight, or there are a lineup of seats looking out the windows. Did we mention there is complimentary spiced popcorn? It’s addictive. They might be small, but The Little Guy will be elbowing the big kids out of the way in no time. Especially if they keep those smiley faces up.
