As of tomorrow the long awaited The Propaganda Club will return with a much more user friendly format. Previously a late night supper club that was only open a few nights a week, the team have brought back the sexy venue in a way that maximises the location to what it can be.
The moody and intimate fit out is still incredibly inviting but now it entices you to stay for a long lunch, an intimate dinner or a few drinks with friends.
Unlike its previous life, this is now a venue thats serving lunch and dinner Monday to Saturday. They’ve transformed the centre area into a fully functional restaurant which can also be closed off for functions.
If you haven’t been before the doors closed, there’s comfy booth to one side of the bar where you can catch up with mates, ideal for dates with the addition of motorised blinds add to the privacy of the area. The other side of the bar boasts high tables where you can watch the mixologists do their magic.
The venue has a 300 person capacity but it doesn’t feel empty. The smaller spaces just make it more warm and inviting. Now that they’ll be open from 11am to late, there’s no occasion that can’t be celebrated at Propaganda.
Head chef, John Kimber, formerly of Georges, has designed a modern Australian menu with an asian twist, packed with dishes that are crowd pleasers, he’s priced it that way too. It’s food that John likes to cook and gives him the opportunity to showcase his talents.
His personal recommendations are the Duck with mushroom broth (John’s favourite), the soft shell crab taco packs a punch and the kimchi sliders are so awesome you can eat them everyday.
The focus seems to be a menu and drink list that is far more approachable and accessible than in the past. Transforming the venue into more of a sexy underground pub.
With $7 pints on tap, great beers that include Pirate Life and newly released Frothy from Matilda Bay alongside cocktails from an experienced mixologist, there’s something for everyone.
This social venue is now designed to take advantage of it’s prime Grenfell St location with the new look. Catch them at 11am as of tomorrow.
