Different Drummer has been one of my favourite places since I moved to Glebe in 2016. I don’t have a lot of money so can’t afford to go often, but it’s where I treat myself whenever I have a bit of extra cash or visitors come to town. I am so grateful for the wonderful staff, especially those who have been there for years and are always up for a chat. I can’t help but feel it’s a great place to work given how rare it is for people to stay in hospitality jobs, and it’s so nice to see familiar faces every time I walk in. And it’s not just the staff who are familiar. There is nowhere else I go that I recognise the other customers as regulars. Different Drummer is special and it’s upsetting to lose it for any reason.
