Deathproof in New Farm is a stunning art-covered little cocktail bar serving up unique and delicious cocktails and bar food.
Artist, Steen Jones has brought the Deathproof walls to life with his spectacular artwork, whilst the rest of the interior is fitting to the bold and alternate vibe. Fluorescent lights and printed ceilings, along with painted skateboards fill the space with character.
The Sailor Jerry inspired wall artwork is not here to stay though, as the wall is re-painted each and every month along with the cocktail and food menu, to accompany a different alcoholic beverage.
Seating includes bar seating, table seating and a window booth, as well as space for standing. Outdoor seating is also available.
The cocktail menu is laden with cocktails featuring the alcohol of the month as well as their cocktail classics, such as ‘Deathproof’. The Deathproof cocktail is an in-house favourite featuring Sailor Jerry, Plantation Pineapple, apricot, pineapple, apple, passionfruit, lemon, cinnamon and bitters.
They also have a couple of beers on tap, cider, wine, bottled beer and ginger beer, milkshakes and soft drinks.
On the food menu, you will find the likes of poutine, pollo wings (deathproof hot of course), tacos and epic sandwiches. The Mexican Poutine is a favourite, with a cholo twist on the original; topped with pulled chicken, pico de gallo and jalapenos. You will also find food on the menu made with the alcohol of the month, such as the Cerdo pork tacos featuring Sailor Jerry pulled pork, pickled onion, BBQ sauce and topped with coriander.
Need to know – Street parking is available, but limited.
Nice to know – The menu changes monthly with the alcohol of the month.
