Jason Scott’s New York bar Peppi’s Cellar has opened up in Nolita; here’s what you can expect from one of Australia’s most influential operators.

One half of the Swillhouse Group, Jason Scott (Shady Pines Saloon et al) is partnering with Jamie Webb (Cabiria, Peasant) in a new saloon-style music hall in Brisbane. “It’s called Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall,” said Webb. “We are a country music hall with free music and a democratic door policy.”

Now once in a while something special graces bar scene becoming an instant classic. Shady Pines Saloon might just be one of those places. Is it the cocktails? Is it the food? Is the über-chic design? Not on your Nelly!
