Bondi Bar Hop
We all know that Bondi is home to a postcard-happy stretch of sand, but the suburb’s reputation as a place to drink and hangout has been steadily climbing.
For those wanting to stick around after a day on the beach, here are a few of Bondi’s best bars and hangout spots.
8 Campbell Parade, Bondi Beach
Set within a pirate/fisherman hybrid shack, this newish place has the charm and the menu to make any night a great one.
With a long list of drinks from all over the pond – fitting for a pirate-themed bar - The Anchor is the perfect place to grab a drink after a long day of being in the drink.
143 Curlewis Street, Bondi Beach
This place is pretty low-key in comparison to Bondi’s other offerings, but what Neighbourhood offers is anything but low-key.
The cocktail list is a mix of fun and unique, the menu is filled with delicious items such as creamy pastas and juicy cheese burgers, and there’s even an open-air courtyard out back for people to mingle.
39 Hall Street, Bondi Beach
Bondi Hardware is a pleasant mix of the rough and the elegant. With exposed brick walls, tools scattered across the walls, and potted plants throughout, it’s probably the classiest garden shed you’ll ever have a drink in.
As for the drinks list, you’ll find all your favourites, but you can’t go wrong with Bondi Hardware’s own version of the Bloody Mary - which is almost a meal within itself.
281 Bondi Road, Bondi
To the naked eye, the Corner House looks just like any other restaurant. But go upstairs to the next level and you’ll find a wealth of cocktails, snacks, and fun times just waiting for you.
The cocktail list has remained relatively unchanged over the years, but each one is well-made, and the list is helpfully divided into categories. Rustic, yet elegant, the Corner House is a pleasant blend of the new and the old.
Bondi Pavilion, Queen Elizabeth Drive
The Bucket List is really all about two things: the buckets of beer and the prawns. Not only does the place look inviting and easy-going, but after a long day in the sun, who doesn’t want to just settle down with a bucket of beer (or chilled cocktail) and some fantastically delicious prawns?
