One of the many joys of living in a country where the weather is balmy and the days are long, is the copious amount of places where one can indulge in a sundown tipple or two. And unlike in London – where the drinking tends takes place in bustling pubs and basement wine bars – Sydney has a number of beautiful spots – from rooftop bars to beach-facing boutiques, to enjoy a late afternoon prosseco.
One of my favourites has to be eastern-suburb hot spot, Coogee Pavilion. My first visit was this time last year; after completing the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk in the blistering late-morning sunshine, my friend Lindsey and I enjoyed a much-deserved bottle of prosecco on the roof top, basking in the roof-top’s shade and sea breeze. I’ve since been back on many a Sunday afternoon with friends to eek out the end of another carefree weekend in the sunshine.
With the chicest of interiors, the coldest of drinks and the most summery of vibes, and with the current heatwave showing little sign of cooling, it will no doubt remain a bustling spot into Autimn and beyond.
