This aptly-named small bar is brimming with more than its fair share of goodness.
This aptly-named small bar is brimming with more than its fair share of goodness. It's not just one busy room, but is cleverly composed of an assortment of nooks. A private table at the front, stools along the wall, hidden under the stairs, the upstairs 'lounge' room or in the upstairs courtyard: take your pick.
The cocktails (all $16) have continued to be the main draw card here since opening back in 2011. For a refreshing drop, go for the Funky Cold Medina (white rum, elderflower liqueur, cucumber, mint and lime juice). Or, if you're looking for something with a kick, it has to be the Mezcal and Smoked Maple Old Fashioned (tequila, LP's smoked maple, mezcal, bitters and dried chilli). The best part is you can get any on the list for a tenner during happy hour Monday through Thursday 5–7pm. And this is a happy hour we frequent.
For the peckish, the share food menu has plenty on offer, including crispy polenta bites ($12) and a dip platter ($14) for smalls, plus pizzas ($10) and burgers ($12) for the hangry — with both veg and meat options. If you're the indecisive sort, the Corridor board ($22) comes with a little bit of everything, including arancini, Mediterranean meatballs, grilled halloumi and garlic bread.
Order at the bar and grab a much coveted rooftop spot before the tables fills up. If you're too slow, we're pretty sure you'll decide to get stuck in downstairs anyway. Corridor is too good to miss out on.
