Food & Drink
There’s a beer for just about any taste and budget, but heck, let your hair down and order a Che Guava (tequila, lime and guava soda), the brain-numbing Catalina iced Tea (dark rum, scotch, bourbon, Kahlua, Tequila, coke and lime) or a scandalous Lindsay Lohan shooter (patron XO, Grey Goose and cinnamon sugar rim).

Cured meats and cheese? MoVida is the place to go. The trendy tapas bar opened up in Sydney after much success down in Melbourne. Salami and prosciutto hanging from the ceiling, delicious green olives and an enviable selection of cheeses make for a delightful evening, and if you're still hungry there are a host of tapas style plates available. Wagyu Beef Air Baguette is lovely and light and Crispy Pigs Ears are cooked to perfection. Servings are quite small and not ideal for sharing, so order a few to fill up.

Spice Temple are serious about flavor. It's a classy Cantonese joint situated under the famous Rockpool Bar & Grill, with a delectable menu of Asian fusion style spoils. With dimmed lights and tables spread generously apart it almost feels like you've got the whole place to yourself (even though all the tables are booked out). There is a fabulous wine and cocktail list, with some rare drops that you won't find anywhere else. But everyone comes for the food and the spices. Don't go past the numbing chicken - it's a sensory experience like nothing else.
