It’s up-market, definitely. Climb the steps and you’re immediately in the large covered courtyard. Tonight is Saturday, it’s about 8pm and it’s not fully packed, but it’s sure loud! We could hear the noise from way down the street on our approach from the Blues Point
Semi-finals are on (NFL), so there’s a large screen TV pushing coverage onto the courtyard area. No-one’s taking much notice, two groups of lads are keeping an eye between sips, but mostly it’s being ignored. We take a seat in the corner and observe.
From the wooden floors to the curved, modernist bar, this place definitely says yuppiedom, but most of the clientele are casual, couples, groups of girls starting out for a club night, mixed groups. It’s mostly 20-somethings. A lot of them seem to know each other, so it’s evidently a Yuppie local in the vein of the Woollahra or the Centennial. Cocktails are popular, as you’d expect.
We like the place. There’s a goods mixture of seating the crowd is loud but friendly. Josh reckons it’s the sort of place you could bring your new girlfriend and score points, apart from the toilets… He says he feels like he’s in Noosa. Fair enough, I’ve never been there!
