American-style diner bar

Central location

You don’t have to drive a cherry red convertible down Route 66 to find your dream diner.

You only have to wander as far as South Bridge, where The Whistle Stop Barber Shop has combined that all-American eating spot vibe with a sleek cocktail bar experience. The best of both worlds, then.

Soak up the classic atmosphere with today’s Big Deal for any hot dog, burger or sandwich plus any starter or dessert for two people.

Decadent diner fare

You probably won’t get a short back and sides at The Whistle Stop Barber Shop (unless your visit coincides with one of their pop-up barber events). But you will definitely get classic American comfort food and playful banter.

This Big Deal is available for lunch and dinner. Menus can change, but here is a sample of just a few of the tasty choices on offer:

Cool comfort food pit-stop

Based on South Bridge, this diner bar has a quirky interior filled with barber’s chairs, cinematic imagery and comfy, retro-style booths. In other words, it’s a chilled spot to unwind with a meal and a drink (they’ll even let you bring your hound dog along).

If you are travelling in by train, The Whistle Stop is a handy a five-minute walk from Waverley station. Plus as the Festival Theatre is a couple of minutes away by foot and the Queen’s Hall is about ten minutes, this would make a good pre-theatre option.

Wander on down to The Whistle Stop

If you are looking for a tidy haircut before heading off to the sock hop, then The Whistle Stop Barber Shop probably isn’t the option for you. But if you fancy a hearty burger, hot dog or sandwich with a starter or dessert thrown in as well, then scoff down today’s Big Deal for two.
