A bar that goes by the name of LazyBones lounge conjures up ideas of a place where everything moves fairly casually, where people are super-chilled and the where idea of lounging around in a bar all day, or all night, is welcomed rather than questioned. And that is exactly what LazyBones lounge is all about. Bar owner Craig set out to create a venue that was like a whole lot of lounge rooms rolled into one big lounge room and that is exactly what LazyBones feels like – it’s a collection of many lounge settings all gathered in one fabulous room with the centre-piece being the magnificent long bar, adorned with chandeliers which looks more like a bar you would find on a Hollywood movie set, rather than Sydney’s inner-west – it’s quite exquisite!
Lazy Bones is the name of a Fatts Waller album and it’s incredibly appropriate that this bar draws it’s name from one of the most famous of jazz musicians, because music is the lynch-pin which this bar revolves around. Every night of the week there is music – jazz, big band, funk, soul, reggae, blues, folk, acoustic, whatever! Music is the key ingredient of making LazyBones not only a place for music, but a place for musicians. And the size of the venue – it’s a big sized bar – really does lend itself to live music and you can site right down the front near the band, or pull up a couch right at the back of the room and still chat and laugh with friends without the music being intrusive.
The design and artwork of LazyBones is something to behold. It really does have that ‘wow’ factor when enter the room from the stairs up from Marrickville Road and although the room is large for a small bar, it still feels cosy because of all the armchairs, chesterfields and various assortments of furniture you would normally find in a house rather than a bar and live music venue. And as with every bar in Sydney’s inner-west there’s not a hint of ‘wank’ anywhere. This is a truly unique bar with high hopes of becoming the musical epicentre for Marrickville and surrounding suburbs and is a sensational addition to the inner-west bar scene in Sydney.
