There are some bars that objectively, aren’t going to win any awards, ever. And sometimes, when all you want is a damn drink and some atmosphere, that’s all you really need. Two Floors on Kingly Street is our go-to for the uncomplicated, simple pleasures of standing around with a drink and sharing some banter with mates. There’s a tiki bar down below (good when it gets rammed upstairs), and you can stand on Kingly Street or in the court behind during good weather. The cocktails are just fine and the staff can be miserable, but when you’re not looking to be fancy or stress out about hitting somewhere cool, Two Floors has always sorted us out.
