ABOUT Badger vs Hawk – Laneway Bars

VENUE IS NOW PERMANENTLY CLOSED


Cosmo Hawke and Lucien Kolff may sound like two names that belong on a poster for an 80s blockbuster action film, but in reality these two men are the coffee-obsessed minds behind the espresso and cold brew haven, Badger Vs Hawk.

A cafe distilled down to the basics, Badger Vs Hawk serves filtered coffee, espresso and its variations, as well as Hawke's own creation, Machete, a bottled cold-drip coffee that now has a minor cult following. Don't wander in looking for a lunchtime sandwich though - it's coffee and coffee only here during the day.

Nights, however, are a different story. The duo have acquired a liquor licence, meaning we can enjoy late afternoon sunshine out in the courtyard, cocktail in hand, then stay on until after dark. Friday nights are given over to Wow and Flutter, where from 5pm local DJs Ben Houghton, Mike Kay and Oscar-O hit the decks along with a regular slew of special guests on rotation.

By evening in the courtyard, there are pulled-pork tacos to snack on, while for the more liquid-inclined there are local beers, cocktails and the house-speciality Machete Libre. Just what that is? You'll have to visit to find out.
