Burgers by Josh Pop-Up at the Annandale Hotel

Burgers by Josh Pop-Up at the Annandale Hotel

I first had Burgers by Josh (or BBJ, as it is affectionately known by its fans) at The Spectrum Festival in the Domain a few months ago, and was immediately smitten. So when I found out that it was popping up for the month of April at The Annandale Hotel, just down...
3 Weeds

3 Weeds

Last Thursday night, my partner and I enjoyed the 7-course degustation with matching wines at The 3 Weeds Hotel in Rozelle. “The 3 Weeds was established in 1881, as the ‘Rose, Shamrock & Thistle’. Despite the name the venue has always...
Drummoyne Sailing Club

Drummoyne Sailing Club

Last night I dropped 1,500 receipts back at a client’s house, which I had entered in Excel for her. On the way home, we decided to drop into Drummoyne Sailing Club for dinner. I can safely say that this was one of the best spontaneous decisions I have made...
Old Clare Hotel

Old Clare Hotel

After a long hiatus, The Old Clare Hotel recently reopened! It is certainly the centrepiece of the $2 billion redevelopment of the former Carlton United Brewery site as Kensington Street laneway precint. You can stay here of course, in one of the luxury hotel rooms....
Australian Youth Hotel

Australian Youth Hotel

If, like me, you thought this dining establishment sounded like a backpackers joint, think again. I have driven past here many times, but never been inside until tonight, and I was very pleasantly surprised. I might even go as far as to describe it as the ‘perfect...
The Builder’s Arms Bistro

The Builder’s Arms Bistro

I wish I could say I dined at The Builder’s Arm’s Moon Under Water fine dining restaurant, but on this occasion I dined with friends at the Bistro. I wasn’t disappointed though. It is just like the famous gastropubs in London. The beer garden in particular reminds me...
Kirribilli Club

Kirribilli Club

Whilst this venue is not as posh as it might sound, the views make up for that! It was dark when I went for friends for dinner and my phone camera at the time was not much good, so you just need to check the views out for yourself. It is a little bit like an RSL...
Woolwich Pier Hotel

Woolwich Pier Hotel

The Woolwich Pier Hotel has to be the perfect local’s pub! I only wish I was a local, so I could enjoy it more often. Having said that, the ferry to Woolwich is a great way to travel there. It seems I am not alone in my thinking…it was recently voted The Best Pub in...
Harbour View Hotel

Harbour View Hotel

I celebrated my 40th birthday here last night and had a great time with family and friends. Amazingly, despite its central location, there was no room hire fee or even a minimum spend for the Balcony Area. Even better, despite booking the part of the balcony for about...
