Join me for a fab Friday night at a great local pub. There's good food options available if you'd like to eat, plus an excellent selection of beers, wines and cocktails. And there's the bonus of a fabulous Piano Man Sing-a-long from 10pm. The Charing Cross Hotel in Bronte is a contemporary gastro pub influenced by modern European & Australian cuisine. Initially built by Irish convict William Newland who gained his freedom in 1833 & borrowed £600 to build what was the first Hotel in the area. It was regularly used as the first meeting place for Waverley Council, while Newland St (named after that famous convict, and the first publican) is still the home of the Council's Bondi Junction office. Recently the pub has had a rejuvenation as a seamless drinking and dining venue, delivering fine local produce & a wide variety of craft beers, ciders & wines. There is an excellent bar menu has all the standard pub favourites.

Almost all Bondi Junction bound buses from Coogee, Maroubra and Randwick pass the door. I'll be there from 7.30pm and am looking forward to a great casual pub night with some friendly locals. Purchase your own drinks and meals at the Bar. The Piano Man is really good and starts at 10pm.
A great free rock show awaits at The Bunker Bar. Ready to Rock was formed by Coogee Meetup regular Rick Lum, who in earlier days was bass player from the hugely successful Australian band HUSH.

There's also a tribute to the glory 70s days of HUSH with Rick normally singing the huge hit Boney Moroney himself. The emphasis on performing songs that appeal to a wide age group of music lovers who will dance, sing and shout for more!
