The Christmas Catch Up

Ever noticed that everyone you have ever known wants to catch up for Christmas? It doesn’t matter that you spent all Winter washing your hair at home… alone… waiting for the phone to ring, as soon as the baubles and tinsel hit the streets it seems everyone wants to know you again. Not that we are complaining! No matter whether it is best friend from primary school who you haven’t spoken to since you were seven or that ex-colleague that you can’t remember actually saying more than 2 words to, there is no better excuse to visit our friends, with your friends in Rundle St East.


Nola Bar

Celebrating their 1st birthday in the East End, Nola have established themselves as the experts on craft beer and good old (and some very good new) whiskey! While acquainting yourself with 16 different beers of tap sample the New Orleans inspired menu. The bespoke surroundings of the old “stables” building on Vardon Avenue offers one of the most unique experiences around.



If you haven’t made a stop at Mothervine yet, then you have been missing out. A superb selection of wines is wonderfully complimented by a delicious array of share platters and plates. To impress the friends and make it look like you know what you are talking about sidle up to the bar and order a “Motherboard” and an “Options Flight”. The night can only get better from there.



The vision of the revered Chef Jock Zonfrillo and his magnificent team, Blackwood reinvents the award-winning Orana Restaurant in Bistro form.  With a menu focusing on Australian Native ingredients with the twist that we have all come to love and expect from this imaginative team topped off by one… two… maybe three bottles of wine and your night out is complete.
