Bars and Pubs - Newcastle West, NSW
This is no ordinary bar: it’s the heart of a vibrant, creative community blooming in the awesome post-industrial architecture of Newcastle’s West End.
FOOD + DRINK
Sweet smoke scents the air from the kitchens wood fired oven, you can sit and eat with friends in a communal scene that is in keeping with the working roots of this town. The Edwards cafe is proudly pouring coffee from our local roasting house Suspension Espresso and our breakfast, lunch and dinner has a conscious measure toward sourcing seasonal produce from local suppliers and maintaining a strong knowledge of the origin of our produce.
On the flip side, if it's not a meal you are after, perhaps you have just finished work, meeting with friends or perched up on a bar stool and are looking for something to take the edge off or nibble on over a drink – we get it. The Edwards bar is fueled by classic cocktails, a carefully selected wine menu and a non-stop supply of Newtown’s Young Henry’s, Murrays Brewing, Brooklyn Lager and other cracking craft beers rotating on our taps. And if you need something to chew while you're sipping your brew our wood and fire and smoke inspired bar bits are served up from 4pm everyday.
In the converted warehouses that surround The Edwards are galleries and creative studios, dance and design academies, and with it the evidence that Newcastle is the site of a bold new energy.
The Edwards is determinedly supportive of the local arts and music scene, we host an artist in residence program as well as other great events and exhibitions in our creative space. We try and retain a constant connection with the community and stimulate conversations around the local creative industries and the arts and have big plans to expand this role of support within the creative community.
