Pocket is a hidden gem of a drinking den which doubles as a cafe during the day. Laid-back and low-lit, Pocket is stitched onto the corner of Crown and Burton Streets, featuring crepes, cocktails and footpath traffic.

It's kitted out like an über cool sharehouse, with squishy vintage sofas, kitsch art and oddball flourishes. There's a great big glass bar where a tidy selection of wine is available by the half bottle, and the cocktail list includes the barman's twist on classic crowd-pleasers and infamous favourites. Treat yourself to a Mojito with Agricole rum, or try a Bramble while you tip your hat to Dick Bradsell.

If you're not feeling peckish when you arrive, you will be when you smell the scent of crepes wafting from Pocket's kitchen. They come in sweet or savoury and are surprisingly affordable. The polished concrete floor is perfectly suited to sauce spills from the cheesy crepes and the Dulce Di Leche crepe comes with toasted coconut and creme anglaise.

Pocket also offers free nibbles every day from 5-6pm in an ingenious reinvention of the famous Italian Aperitvo. Pocket's grungy, laid-back aesthetic, unpretentious atmosphere and funky beats deeply layered with lo-end bass will make you empty out your pockets again and again.
