Champagne Charlie's, the Carrington
Champagne Charlies Cocktail Bar at The Carrington in Katoomba is the Blue Mountains only cocktail bar. Although they shake up a mean cocktail, their very own brews from Katoomba Brewing Company more than deserves a look in. The art-deco landmark is full of gradeur and charm, and will transport you to eras past.
The wildly popular Leura Garage is a cafe by day, and buzzing tapas bar by night. The menu features crowd classics and share plates – try the meatboards and six-cheese pizza if you dare. Casual and chic, the mechanic workshop turned restaurant has an eco-focus with everything from their local and organic menu to their award-winning sustainable fit-out.
Station Bar & Woodfired Pizza
Located on the main street in the heart of the Blue mountains is Station Bar + Woodfired Pizza. This stylish and intimate pizza joint only do pizzas – but we’re not complaining because these are anything but ordinary. They top them with everything from king prawns to kangaroo and salami to saltwater crocodile (yes really). The courtyard is great for when the weather warms up, and the live music creates a casual and buzzy atmosphere.
Wentworth Falls Country Club
The sensational views from the country club make this an ideal venue not just for a round of golf, but for special occasions, dinners and weddings. Located in the heart of the Blue Mountains, Wentworth Falls Country Club is a picturesque spot to enjoy hearty brasserie fare while overlooking the endless greenery and gum tree lined mountains.
The Old City Bank
At the end of the grand driveway leading up to the Carrington Hotel sits the Old City Bank Bar, a local watering hole with the charm of an old English pub. Their jugs of mulled wine will warm you from the inside out, and are the perfect comfort concoction for those winter nights.
