Mosey down Curlewis Street and pull up stumps at the front bay window for prime people watching vistas. Or head down the back, past the front bar and legacy DJ booth, for a more “I could be anywhere” courtyard vibe.
Go with friends. Or a date. Hell, take your oldies. It all works at Neighbourhood Bondi – and with friendly bar staff, a solid cocktail list and food worth going back for – there’s not many reasons not to pay a visit to Bondi’s newbie.
If you’re like us, you’ll start with a rhubarb and cinnamon bellini before making your way through a punch share-style menu. Do not pass on crunchy popcorn school prawns, beef brisket quesadilla and the very noteworthy Albacore tuna ceviche with crispy tortilla chips. With bites courtesy of the gents at Panama and the Corner House, it comes as no surprise the food is worth a re-visit.
Take your pick from window seating, high bench tables, stools at the bar, or bigger group tables out the back. They’ve got you sorted on all fronts.
Get acquainted with Bondi’s newest neighbour(hood). We think you’ll like it.
