A quick bus ride from the city, or a refreshing end to the Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk, a neglected pub was transformed into one of the most happening beach bars in Sydney. Downstairs, there's a wood-fired pizza oven, an oyster bar, a juice stall, and a kids zone with giant scrabble, pétanque (like indoor bocce), ping pong, and nautical books. But the sea-breeze rooftop is where the big kids play—in four different bars kitted out with love seats and wire-frame stools to better take in those breathtaking bay views. Aussie wines and beers plus fruity cocktails shaken with house-made juice pair with Mediterranean-themed tapas ranging from chargrilled lamb chops to blistered padron peppers.
