The buzz around Steam Mill Lane may have died down a bit, but the foodie precinct has just the thing to keep people coming — a massive, laneway-wide happy hour four times per week.
Dubbed Steam Sessions, the offering runs every Wednesday through Saturday from 4–7pm, with deals on booze, coffee, food and even discounted pharmacy items — because no one said you can't combine a little boozing with your humdrum errands.
The best of include $10 spritzes and $5 draft beers/house wines from Belles Hot Chicken; $10 poke bowls from Fishbowl; and $15 coffee and dessert from Edition Coffee Roasters (3–5pm). Marrickville Pork Roll and Ricefields also have free drink with purchase deals, and, if you happen to get to the area early, Toby's Estate is slinging a $5 coffee and pastry combo from 2–4pm.
Plus, on Friday evenings they've got live acts and DJs taking over the laneway too, so you can add a little free entertainment to your cheap knock off drinks.
