    Step behind the unassuming facade of Darlie Laundromatic, and you'll discover a slice of the inner west right in the heart of Darlinghurst. This bar has been a long time coming.

    Luckily, Darlie still has it's feet firmly on Darlo soil. The signs and taps of the laundry previously here still stand, while a washing line of tea towels across the room pays ode to the site's prior purpose. Aside from this, the bar is decorated à la Eathouse, though with a more clearly 'Australian suburbia' bent: lamps and ferns, prints and oil paintings, green plastic high school chairs, and an assortment of Sylvac-style salt and pepper shakers on every table. This bar even possesses its own back yard.

    The menus feel similarly nostalgic. The highlight is the house-made organic cordials, and I choose Grapefruit and Rose with Vodka ($7.50). It arrives served up in a milkshake glass with pink straw, and I quickly follow up with the Spiced Orange. Offerings vary every day, so I'd recommend making the most of whatever comes straight out of the kitchen. A reasonable range of beers (from $5), wine, (from $6) and spirits (from $5) are also on offer; as well as tea, coffee and juice to cater for cafe hours.

    Food doesn't disappoint either, with both lunch/dinner and specific bar food menus. We opt for the Plowmans Platter ($15) to share. It rivals that of the Commons, with vintage cheddar, dill pickles, hot sopressa, chili jam and a novelty tabouli made with quinoa, all served with afghan flat bread. The condiments are again house-made and organic, and the serve is generous for the cost. If you're early enough, Darlie offers $10 lunch specials on weekdays (check the blackboard).

    Darlie Laundromatic brings some much needed colour and character to this side of town, while keeping prices more than reasonable. I have a feeling this could be my new home.
