UNDER THE BAR - LULIE TAVERN
Interview and intro by Carolina Pasini | Photos by Yeah Rad.
In the second instalment of our newest series, Under The Bar, where we highlight iconic venues in the food and beverage scene, we're profiling Lulie Tavern, an outright charmer in Naarm.
In 2021, Jon-Lee Farrell and Brendan Kennedy, mates and masterminds behind Luli's, turned this Johnston Street gem into Abbotsford's rock'n'roll haven. With a primo spot and unpretentious vibes, Lulie Tavern invites locals to revel in good times. From neon signs gifted by patrons to a collection of memorabilia, the place exudes a laid-back charm that makes it the ultimate spot for an epic night with your mates. Catch some local bands, hit the pool table, have a dance – Lulie's got it all.
We sat down with Riley, our friend and venue manager, to talk about creativity, prawn auctions and keeping things fresh.
