Wagyu is the perfect spot for people watching along Wynhdam Street's myriad of bars and clubs. The bar's whole facade is open, allowing drinkers and smokers alike to spill onto the street outside.
We like it when things we want come to us without asking, and this is the joint for that. Take a standing spot at one of the handy rails, and the barmen not only rush around bringing you drinks, but also deliver complimentary snacks. And these aren’t of the cheesy Wotsit variety either – we’re talking deep fried calamari, mini-quesadillas, chilli prawns… yes please. We totally approve.
Appetite sorted, you can order something more substantial from the extensive bar menu. The pizzas rock and most come with a sprinkling of Wagyu beef somewhere along the line (there’s table service inside if you want to go all out). Oh and this place is also renowned for the best brunch in town, so that’s your hang over sorted.
The décor is warm, earthy, quite masculine with lots of wood and granite, grrr. They’ve got good wine by the glass, several beers on tap and plenty of cocktails to choose from. The staff are super friendly, and we hear the nifty barman Bim will take his shirt off if you ask him nicely, better than ice and a slice any day.
