The New Taffy’s Sports Bar Opens at The Entrance Social Club

If you’ve been to the iconic North Shore pub, The Oaks in Neutral Bay, chances are you’ve met ‘Taffy’, the pub’s owner, behind the bar. Andrew ‘Taffy’ Thomas has now opened his second Taffy’s Sports Bar at The Entrance Social Club (formerly The Entrance Hotel), and we can’t wait to go and play…

Quietly opening just before Christmas at the end of 2021 as part of The Entrance Social Club transformation, Taffy’s offers an electric atmosphere to watch all major national and international sporting events; NBA, NFL, football, golf, UFC and more. With multiple large screens – the main screen covers 21 square metres – you’re guaranteed to catch all the action. There are also booths that each have their own dedicated TV, and an app available (‘Sports Year’) that enables punters to see what’s on and where they can book a seat.

Spaces for the big kids, you say? We’ll see you there.

The space itself was designed by Pony Design Co. (also responsible for other chic Sydney venues including The Fernery), and effortlessly styled by Lucia B. Think of a place where big kids go to play, with dark and bold finishes, foosball tables, saddle seats and vintage-collage-style wallpaper that screams of the sporting glory days.

The taps at Taffy’s #1…expect even more novel taps at Taffy’s #2

You can wash down the action with a specialty selection of on-tap craft beers (each with their own novelty taps), daily food specials, signature cocktails and an impressive selection of tequila, spiced rum and Japanese whisky. Menu offerings include all of the usual sports bar fare including Southern fried chicken, buckets of wings, foot-long hot dogs, parmies and more.

Wings for days…

Taffy’s Sports Bar will shortly be accompanied by Mrs May’s Bistro and a spacious outside terrace that will be the final revamps of the transformation of the old Entrance Hotel to The Entrance Social Club, set for completion in early April. The final product will comprise vast, aesthetically pleasing social spaces, and a whole of good vibes.
