St Brigids Bar

251 Scarborough Beach Rd, Doubleview

The first true neighbourhood bar in Doubleview, from award-winning publicans Siobhan Blumann and Hamish Fleming of Bread & Circuses. Driven by a vision of a neighbourhood meeting place where you can catch up with mates out for a drink, pop in for a quiet one on your own or take the whole family to enjoy on a lazy Sunday.

Designed by Finespun Architecture, the 120-person bar is made up of different areas. Utopia Construction was contracted to fitout what was formerly the old Chinta site.

With lots of exposed brick, beautiful timber floorboards and high ceilings inside, locals won’t want to leave. Stand-out features include the U-shaped overhead lighting above the bar area, as well as the outdoor fireplace, which backs onto a feature recycled brick wall, housed in the backyard’s sunken courtyard.
