Evie's Disco Diner is everything you hope it'll be when you first hear it's name mentioned. It's bright, unapologetically eighties, loud and queer friendly. With Queeraoke every Thursday and bingo every Wednesday, there is no shortage of fun to be had here. Whether it's (badly) belting out your favourite tune or polishing off a bucket of bingo wings, grab a group of mates, put on your dancing shoes and prepare to boogie.

The food at Evies Disco Diner is described as vegan friendly comfort food, taking inspiration from a classic New York diner. Vegan options include classics such as pickles, corn chips with guac, beer battered onion rings and jalapeño poppers for entrees. Mains include nuggets with house dipping sauce, celery sticks with ranch sauce or a range of hot dogs which can be either vegan or not.

If you're a carnivore, the 1kg bucket of fried chicken with bread, pickles and ranch is hard to pass up, while the Philly cheesesteak with onion, green capsicum and provolone cheese is another hit. For dessert opt for the fried apple pie with vanilla ice cream or the New York cheesecake with berry compote.

Cocktails include classics such as Aperol spritz and espresso martinis, while house options include the Coco Chanel with Coco Pops, creme de cacao, vodka and horchata, or the leamington martini with wildflower and lamington vodka. The drinks are fun and visually impressive, so be sure your phone is fully charged as there'll be plenty of pics.

On Saturdays they offer up a bottomless brunch, with four hours of vego food plus two hours of mimosas, bubbles, wines, beer and seltzers.

But once the night comes, the dining tables at Evies Disco Diner are pushed aside and this space becomes more of a club, full of the usual Smith Street crowd of party-goers staying up late and getting rowdy.
