Ahhhh Sunday, the one day of the week where I’m quite happy to scroll through my feeds for hours on end and not feel guilty for doing so.
On Instagram I have an eye for anything that is creative and I love things that are different. On this particular day I came across what I found to be a very creative coffee cup.
After a few more scrolls and liking almost every image on their account, I just knew I had to visit - how could I not? Look at the desserts!
Bondi local and award-winning chef Ian Oakes of The Grand National had an idea of opening a local eatery that people could drop in at all times of the day and leave with a long lasting impression - this my friends is a exactly what he has achieved.
Roughly 9:00pm on Saturday night our sights were firmly set on finding Pocket Bar. This had been recommended to us by a friend who said “It’s cheeky” – what does that even mean when you’re referring to bar? That comment was intriguing.
As we walked into this venue the first thing we noticed was the graffiti-like street art on the walls. It was dimly-lit and had retro fitted decor throughout.
This bar definitely did have something cheeky about it, it had personality and after speaking to the staff we soon realized they also were interesting characters. Their vibrant personalities matched not only the bar but the menu.
“Rhub an tug, awkward 1st date, take your clothes off” to name a few.
