Ladies who lunch, hungover heads and midnight winos are all welcome at this beachside bar

Small concrete cherubs and plastic flamingos sit amongst clusters of candles sitting atop waterfalls of melted wax while frondy plants, Art Nouveau lights and buckets of blooms decorate the ceiling. Add this to their weekend girls’ picnics and it goes a long way to explaining its popularity as a hen’s night venue – ladylike, with nary an inflatable phallus in sight. If you are here for dinner, even the sausage roll won’t leave you with much change from a twenty, but they have specials most nights of the week like Double Burger Thursdays complete with $20 beer jugs. This is primarily a wine bar, but there’s not much in the way of wine snobbery to be found here. They have more than a hundred bottles on the wine list, organised into helpful categories that suggest more about how the wine will actually taste than anything resembling a technical classification. The majority of the list is available by the glass and whether you choose a ‘big, bold red’ or a ‘fresh white’, you can expect to pay between $7 and $13.50. They have a small, crowd-pleasing selection of beers that tend towards the craftier end of the mega brews with the likes of Little Creatures, Pure Blonde and James Squire, while on the cocktail front they stick pretty firmly to the sweet and fruity end of the spectrum. Views of one of the city’s most popular beaches are uninterrupted; we’re all for finding a perch by the windows with jug of Pimm's and lemonade.
