Lowenbrau, The Rocks

German pub at The Rocks.  It’s been there forever.  It gets the tourist trade as well as lots of locals.  Good simple food and good beer.  Maybe not as good as the Belgian Beer Cafe up the road but they have vouchers in the Entertainment Book – 1 main free if you buy another main.  How good is that.  You pay so much for The Entertainment Book.  There are hundreds of vouchers ranging from fast food to top rated restaurants to car hire.  Groups can combine up to 3 cards to get a discount for everyone.  Before the voucher sites on the internet, this was it.

The pork knuckle is also a favourite.

Belmondo, The Rocks

We accidentally found Belmondo. We were looking for dinner at The Rocks during Vivid. Everywhere was too packed and I remembered walking past this bar sometime ago, up some steep stairs behind Argyle St somewhere. And it happened to be Belmondo. Dinner was good, quiet and intimate. They also have a $35 3 course lunch on Friday. So we came back the next week after sneaking out for lunch from work early and somehow managed a longish lunch. Just as well work was a little quiet this time of the year. I was expecting a decent business crowd. Either because it is winter or every businesses are having it tough. We had about 4 tables around us during the 2 hour interlude. The service was impeccable. The sun was out on the odd day this month and lunch was simply delicious.

Bombay Royale

A band that doesn’t take themselves too seriously and they play Bollywood – the Bombay Royale. They feel like a band out of a Tarantino movie.

They are so much more fun and energetic live.
