The Paddington end of Oxford Street, opposite the Army Barracks.

With comfortable private booths, dynamic function space and more live entertainment than you could ever ask for, Unicorn is the perfect spot for a private function. The main bar area is fully equipped with the most up to date sound equipment, fold away staging and furniture.

The Unicorn, Fringe Bar, Unicorn Cellar? We hear your confusion people. Let’s get this straight. It’s now called The Unicorn and this Paddington institution is cooler than ever. Located on Oxford Street, The Unicorn has been given a modern facelift, complete with a cracking new menu and drinks list. The eclectic fitout is testament to the creative culture of the Eastern Suburbs with three vibrantly decorated function spaces; The Cellar (downstairs), The Birdcage (ground level, at the back) and The Library (ground level, far corner).

Thanks to the quirky design and relaxed staff, The Unicorn is more down-to-earth than most of the pubs and bars around Paddo, with an equally unpretentious price tag to match. The Modern Australian menu features elegant salads, hearty burgers and quality steaks; most of which are well under $20. Live music has always been one of the drawcards at Fringe and The Unicorn continues with live music/DJs and local bands featuring regularly.

David Paton:

Had a great lunch there mid last week. The $10 deals are great and the staff were very friendly. The wraps stood out for our group and we will definitely be coming  21/05/2013
