Jack Charles has the lowdown on the best places to check out, and he would know because he’s #AllBoutIt. Here’s Jack’s top 10 bars on Chapel Street.
“Having lived around Chapel Street over the past 7 years, you really do learn the ins and outs.” Here’s a list of a few of my favs!
Once a furniture store, Morris Jones still holds its 1887 heritage appeal, encapsulated by its wood and brick interior. Sophistication is added through its wine list, fantastic cocktails and a beer garden. If that doesn’t excite you, head Chef Matthew Butcher’s cuisine will!
If you’re the type to rock Air Max 90s, Yellow Bird the place for you! There’s great music, an affordable menu and an outdoor area that’s great for people watching on a summer’s night!
While the sun sets, refresh yourself with a ‘Netflix & Chill’ cocktail and a D.I.Y starter board!
7. Two Wrongs
Having just celebrated their first birthday, Two Wrongs is described as “fine diving”. With its Versace cutlery, UV lighting and gloomy candles, you may feel like you’re in Gotham City. The ambiance of the bar reflects its menu – mysterious, creative & cool.
After dinner at Hawker Hall, stroll down to Borsch, Vodka & Tears for a nightcap. With over 100 vodkas, there’s something for everyone! Founded by a trio of Polish expats, it’s only right that they offer an assortment of Polish cuisine.
5. Leonards House of Love
If you’ve ever wanted to know what it feels like to come home from skiing on the Alps to a log cabin bar, then pull up your skis because this is the place for you! With a ’70s inspired decor, this funky bar is decked out with timber walls, an open fireplace and stone masonry. You can’t beat their fantastic outdoor area and phenomenal American cuisine.
A true prohibition styled bar; draped in wood, knowledgeable bartenders and an impressive back bar, The Woods Of Windsor is for the dignified ladies and gentlemen.
The name on everybody’s lips at the moment is Mr Miyagi. A new take on traditional Japanese food – with an inspired menu featuring gems like the famous Nori Taco – Mr Miyagi will leave you wanting more. Waiting for a table has never been more fun, with a vibrant atmosphere and impressive bar setting at the back of the restaurant. Certainly what #MRMSAYS goes…
A fab new bar/bottle-o has landed on the Windsor end of Chapel Street. Named after the bird who, if followed in the desert, will lead you to the nearest watering hole. Galah is championing local produce and low intervention natural wines.
Grab a small batch bottle from the shelves, scurry upstairs and take a sip (or ten) in a high-ceiling warehouse setting. This joint used to be a panel beater’s storage space, but you’d never guess looking at the leather and velvet upholstered booths or the sultry cocktail menu. Sip on an Aussie inspired aperitif – maybe the Outback Sheila (finger lime and saltbush margarita) – then tuck into a cheese platter followed by kangaroo loin for something larger. Plus, there’s resident DJs on the one’s and two’s throughout the week. Get on it guys.
216 High St, Windsor
1. Jungle Boy
Look for the American sandwiches and fries shop and enter the fridge… seriously. Jungle Boy is a cool bar that’ll be sure to win you brownie points if you’re taking mates or a date. Start your night off right with their great drinks and cosy atmosphere (or for a late night kick on session!)!
Mentor Education provide quality training across multiple sectors, including Accounting and Bookkeeping, Mortgage Broking, Financial Services and Business.
The unassuming entrance to this space will leave you delighted once you step inside and discover a beautifully transformed, open plan warehouse. A blank canvas that can be adapted to suit your posse’s needs.
Launching Saturday, 15 March, Italian bar and restaurant, Tipico will be offering a European-style boozy lunch every Saturday and Sunday for two hours from 15 March to 7 April 2019.
