The Toff in Town is a two-part venue offering a bit of something for everyone — if you're not afraid of some stairs, that is. Located on the second floor of the CBD's Curtin House, The Toff is a well-known staple in the life of a midweek partier. Both sides of the venue — the live music bar Stageside and restaurant The Carriage — are open Tuesday to Saturday, from 5pm all the way through to 5am. Stageside has a range of events including live music, comedy, cabaret and DJs to keep you entertained. 

Stageside is an intimate space with plenty of room to break out and dance. It hosts regular gigs from album launches to comedy nights to jazz nights and birthday parties. Its cocktails are well priced and include all the classics, including French martinis, old fashioneds, whiskey sours and margaritas. Elsewhere on the menu, you'll find beer, wine and spirits, and signature cocktails like the Twisted Sister with jalapeño infused tequila, Campari, fresh grapefruit and a lava salt rim.

Thai food at The Toff in Town.

If you've danced the night away and are suddenly craving a feed, The Carriage has you covered with a Thai-inspired menu featuring small, medium and large plates.

If you just need a snack then try the herb cured kingfish, the garlic and chives dumplings or the Whizz Fizz chicken sticks. Need something more substantial? Then look towards The Toff in Town's pad thai, the crispy pork belly curry or the ground chilli beef with green beans and Thai basil. If you're downright starving, then grab a banana leaf barra with red curry and coconut or a turmeric chicken Maryland with salted duck egg, dried shrimp and ginger salad.
