Little Social arrived in Paddington in 2018, transforming the space previously occupied by Yard Bird Ale House on Given Terrace. The eatery comes from Adam Barrack (Peasant), who has embraced a simple and honest philosophy for Little Social – somewhere people can feel like they are enjoying good food, booze and company at a friend’s place. The kitchen team has created a modern-Australian menu focusing on share plates and grazing boards, including sand crab and corn fritters, truffled pea and chorizo croquettes, charcuterie and lamb shanks. Little Social also stocks a selection of more than 40 bottles of wine, encompassing Australia’s finest regions, as well as select drops from further abroad. Bar taps pour a selection of interesting craft beers, cider, Pimm’s and batch-brewed sangria. If a stronger sip is what you’re after, you’ve got eight classic cocktails to choose from as well as a gin-heavy selection of craft spirits.
