Pizza and Cocktails in a Former Hardware Store
Once a hub for tradies (tradesmen) and DIY-ers, Bondi Hardware is now a casual eating and drinking house outfitted with exposed beams, hardwood furniture, brick walls, loads of decorative plants, and antique saws and chains. The space invites groups to share fingerfoods like sliders—which come with your choice of beef, pork belly, or fish—ceviche mixed with grapefruit, orange, and cucumber, and such wood-fired pizzas as the prawn and roasted pumpkin. The wine list is heavy on Australian bottles, and cocktails include classic martinis as well as signature blends such as to the Loco Coco (whole young coconut complemented by Havana Blanco, lime, and coconut syrup). Sit at the counter to watch the bartenders mix their magic.
