As most of us would know, it can be a little tricky getting almost any man into a fashion retail store at anytime of the day, week, month or even year. There’s just something that just doesn’t entice them to shop. With the opening of the newest hotspot, populated more than usual on a Thursday night, ‘Shirt Bar’ is stepping it up and creating a new revolution for men when it comes to in-store shopping.
Doubling as a fashion retail store filled with men’s shirts as well as a bar, there’s no reason why any man wouldn’t want to be sipping on some scotch, whilst filling himself up on some meat platters at the cafe and also be stocking up on some shirts suitable for the office or a night out.
Being a shirt store, it makes sense that the look and vibe given at ‘Shirt Bar’ is more of a manly feel than what your typical boutique store would be. The lights are dim and lit by the fire of scented candles, the bar is padded with leather, while the seats and tables are plain metal and the staff members wear crisp shirts and look effortlessly cool yet professional. The walls are made of brick and wooden fixtures display the variety of some seriously stylish shirts, complimented with the old-style Singer brand sewing machines. The vibe is a little homely with soul and blues music on play and decorated with some creatively made wall-art, definitely a place he would want to chill out after work either on his own or with some of the guys.
‘Shirt Bar’ exclusively stocks labels each with their own style; Ganton and Bespoke by Ganton – for the classic man who loves a to experience the finer things in life, Jensen – for those want to take their shirt from the office to the bar and all in between and of course, Louka + Sabina – for men and women who want to wear their shirt with personality.
The bar dominates with the favoured male drinks; whisky is the main focus with options of aged rum and malt as well as a selection of wines and cocktails, even coffee! Platters of meat and canapés are also available to snack on while choosing your next favourite shirt. This is so creatively done as well as convenient; it will be the place to be for all things shirts, drinks and some social mixing.
A mix of fashion, food, drinks and people, it is hard to not enjoy a few hours at this place. With a central location in the city of Sydney, the ‘Shirt Bar’ proudly sits in Sussex Lane right near Kent Street and Erskine Street among few other bars, this one is impossible to miss.
