Down N’ Out Bar Sydney

down n out sydney sign

Just off of Kent St. and Liverpool is a small neon sign and door to the Down N’ Out Bar. A feasting haven for fans of great burgers, not only your tastebuds but your eyes will appreciate the crafting of these burgers. These burgers are hot off the grill and do not disappoint.

Quench your thirst with a cold brew, or set your mouth ablaze with their “death” sauce made from the world’s hottest peppers. Their house-made dressings are packed with flavor, complementing whatever they touch.

We arrived early for dinner, so we practically had the entire place to ourselves.

The bar has a classic pub feel with comic, action-figures, and video game motifs throughout.

The atmosphere at Down N’ Out in Sydney has an urban feel, decorated with retro comic book art and local artwork. With brick walls, textured concrete, metals, woods, and a stairwell filled with graffiti, this trendy loft provides a fun place to unwind and chow down. At the top of the stairs are pinball machines and a stand up “multi-cade” game machine to play classic video games.

Eating “linner” at Down N’ Out on a weekday gave us a semi-private dining space. We were able to enjoy our surroundings to the fullest, and the servers were friendly and helpful.

The Burgers

A few items on their menu reminded us of our much beloved Southern California burger chain, In-N-Out burgers, but they are quick to point out they have no affiliation. Ask for their “Tiger style” to get a mustard-grilled burger with caramelized grilled onions, American cheese, and thousand islands dressing (similar to In-N-Out’s “Animal style”)

Down N’ Out has successfully created a social media haven with its oversized gourmet burgers and fun atmosphere. For a limited time, their pop up locations created Pokemon burgers featuring Pikachu, Charmander, and Bulbasaur. The staff and chef teams are creatively talented and appeal to what is trending.

Not-So-Secret Menu

A secret menu typically isn’t printed in a three-ring binder, but Down N’ Out was nice enough to share theirs with us.
