Jester Seeds | Newtown

The ghetto charms of Jesterseeds with its destroyed beauty and graffitised walls. Street side sides, unassuming easy manner and friendly staff.

You’re drinking in a maybe dive. Milk crates.

Fancy light globes in jars

Main drinking area inside. Frames on the wall, stencil art. stripped paint. Nice warm, derelict.

Outdoor backyard with lights.

Polenta chips $8.

This had a more generous serve than Bloodwood but sadly it wasn’t as good. The chips were very crunchy (a plus) but the dipping sauce should have been gorgonzola (or something flavourful – maybe a relish)  like bloodwoods as it was somewhat flavourless otherwise.

wine + grapefruit magarita. $18. Not bad but when you can get a jug of drink for about $25, not the best value proposition. $18 gets you an ultimate maitai at grandmas (SOOO GOOD).

That table its sits on its all kinds of “oh dear” though. I took a photo of the bracket below as it was wobbly and they really need to industralise bracket it. You can’t lean on it and look across at your companion as the whole thing will give way.

Sangria by the jug. Hell yessss. Jesus apparently visited?

Various drinks. Can’t recall. Had the new in town (derp – newtown) drink. goooddd stuff.

JesterSeeds is appropriately divey and quite a neat little small bar. Its centrally located in Kingstreet and the vibe inside is cool. I’ve been multiple times and really enjoyed this small bar experience. Unpretentious and easy. And everytime, without fail, the bar guys would greet you when you depart and make you feel like your company was appreciated. As JS is just small enough, the mixologists are happy to chat about various things making it all quite smooth and fun. Good stuff this. I don’t seem to recall it having music or any sort of aural ambience. corridor it is if you want live music + jazzy tunes.

 

That review’s coming soon.
