Common Man Coffee Roasters, known for its Arabica coffee and brunch specialities, is swapping their coffee for natural wine in the evening. Known as Common Man Night Shift after dark, wine lovers can look forward to over 80 types of natural wines from all over the world.
For the uninitiated, natural wine is a type of wine made using traditional winemaking methods without pesticides, additives or chemicals. It is essentially pure fermented grape juice and has been increasing in popularity over the last few years in line with the organic food movement and healthy lifestyle trend. Some claim drinking natural wine results in fewer headaches and less severe hangovers.
All of the wines presented at Common Man Night Shift (once known as Drunken Farmer) are sourced ethically from producers living by the philosophy: “nothing added, nothing taken away”, so you can rest assured that you are getting the best of what there is to offer. Each glass of wine will be priced between $13 to $16, or $50 if you decide to have a flight of three glasses.
Alongside the wine bar, there is also a new dinner menu that will complement the selection of natural wines. The food, inspired by flavours from across the globe, is made with a touch of Japanese and Mediterranean cuisine.
Dishes include Cacio E Pepe Udon Pasta ($24); Umami Magic, a 12-inch sourdough pizza ($22); and a Duck & Foie Gras Pie ($38). Indulge in their desserts at the end of your meal with a Yuzu Cheesecake ($14) or Okinawa Black Sugar Tiramisu ($16).
