Inside, the neon lit main bar has seating along the exposed handmade brick wall, which is awash with vintage posters and collectables. There's a bandstand in the front corner, whilst further inside, a lamplit wallpapered room is a cosy place for group gatherings. Out back, there's a pocket-sized courtyard with surfboard-shaped benches.

Being a good time bar, every night at Suzie Wong's there's live music, from acoustic sets to bands of every music genre from rock'n'roll to blues and funk. Music is piped throughout so even if you're in the courtyard, you can still hear the band. On Friday and Saturday, there's acoustic acts from 7.30pm, and bands from 10-2. On week nights, bands play from 9pm.

There's no food served at Suzie Wong's but the drinks menu is what the good times are about. Start with the signature cocktails, perhaps a Hawaiian flavour such as Blue Kahana Shot (Nusa Cana tropical island rum, coconut and lime), Suzie's Colada (Havana Club 3yo and 7yo rum, coconut, lime and bitters), Suzie's Death (3 types of rum, pastis, apricot, apple, pink grapefruit and fire), or the popular Unsolicited Life Advice (tequila, capano banco, lime, jalapeno and watermelon).
