Ready to say cheers to life? Then you need to head to Deathproof, the brainchild of artist Steen Jones and Anthony Calligeros. The bar and eatery a neon-lit den of curiosity, with more than 500 skulls painted across the space (including the entire ceiling), a bad-ass tiger mural declaring we’re ‘too tough to die’ (in case the name didn’t give it away, death and immortality are a common theme at Deathproof), and an impressive illuminated brick feature wall. If the ‘party and bullshit’ neon sign hanging over the bar didn’t give you the hint, the Deathproof team want to make sure that if you’re there, you’re going to have a damn good time. Concoctions are carefully crafted behind the bar, which you can pair with snacks perfect for drinking. Munch on the likes of Young Henrys beer-battered pickles or onion rings, chunky poutine chips, Deathproof hot wings and a selection of tacos and sandwiches.
As of Tuesday August 15, Deathproof will be kickstarting your heart from early in the morning, with a new cafe offering from 6:00 am Tuesday to Sunday. Fonzie Abbott will be supplying the beans (with free coffee happening all opening day long) and breakfast bites will include the likes of smashed avocado and chicken and waffles served until midday.
