Grand (Bowral)
Packed with local kids at weekends, good for a quiet one in the daytime

295 Bong Bong Street,

(02) 4861 4783

The Grand (promounce it with drawn-out vowels, sort of 'greeeaaaand') is situated right in the middle of Bowral's main strip and so occupies a prime position here. Before the conversion of the nearby Royal, it was the primary hangout for the youth of Bowral and nearby Moss Vale, as well as the surrounding communities, and still manages to hold things together nicely. The main bar is a comfortable spot, with spacious leather lounges and low tables around a small peninsular bar. The walls are lined with framed Guinness posters outlining in cartoon fashion the manufacturing process of that fine Irish icon, but you certainly wouldn't call it an Irish theme bar. It's far more tasteful than that. In the days it gets a more mature clientele, sipping at middies and enjoying quiet conversation, but its at its liveliest towards the weekend, with the jukebox hammering out the old classics, and the area's 18-25 year olds (at least those who haven't already upped sticks and moved to Sydney) in fine form. If you're in the immediate area you should probably call in for one. And check out the Bradman Museum while you're in the area too.

maximus from bowral
this is top draw, classy, relaxed and comfortable. the perfect spot to unwind after work or have a few drinks and a chat with friends. try the cocktail bar upstairs if you can handle it. for you guys out there the grand has the best eye candy that the region has to offer (or near enough to) highly recomended from a harsh marker. good luck getting a lounge though youll usually find me there with my friends and if i find you in my seat ill be sure to have you removed. far beats the long lines to get into the bowral. but no dance floor :'( not that i can dance anyway.

Most people hate the taste of beer to begin with. It is however a prejudice that many have been able to overcome. : Winston Churchill - more quotes...
