We visited the Paddock Club at 6:00 in the evening for some dinner. Very unique spot in the historic Paddock Arcade. On the plus side - the food was good. They have a unique mix of 'bar food' (chicken wings, nachos etc.) and fancier offerings....More

Came here late on a Sunday night in April. Tucked away, yet spacious, a few regulars by the bar and lots of cosy seating by the fire. Great beer but the martinis stole the show for me, and a total steal at around $6 each....More

We've been here several time and we've always had a good time. The live bands play great music. The options for food have always been good. The drink prices and options are great as well. The old build only adds to the atmosphere.
