Fat Pig BBQ by Split
We always knew Split Upstairs was here for a good time, not a long one – and what a time it was. As the seasons change, so too does the ever-evolving space perched above the Nobbys strip. Friends and fellow revellers, say hello to Fat Pig BBQ by Split – the brand-new winter-appropriate incarnation of the ramshackle rooftop space. As you may have deducted from the cheeky name, Fat Pig is all about the barbecue with the whole experience centred around the kind of food that people enjoy the most whilst sitting outdoors. It may seem oddly specific, but the result is seriously next level. It’s not fine dining by any stretch (for that, head downstairs to Gods of the Sea), but what you will find is trays piled high with slow-cooked brisket with sides of dijon slaw, mac ‘n’ cheese and potato salad. Meat-free mates aren’t left out in the cold, there’s a range of options to suit both vegetarian and vegan preferences. The drinks selection is delightfully extensive and includes some seriously eye-popping hot-pink jalapeno margaritas and five different kinds of spritz, each one more delicious than the next. There’s a satisfying array of tap beers including Balter and Stone & Wood alongside some more adventurous sips such as the Stomping Ground Watermelon Sour. Wine lovers are also spoilt for choice with a selection of wine on tap alongside bottles of bubbles, white, orange, rosé and red.
