Coogee Bay Hotel
Well-positioned opposite Coogee beach, this establishment is the place of many tales. The Coogee Bay Hotel is the local watering-hole with a great beer garden. Fairy lights and all. It has a coastal chic vibe throughout, a sports bar and a bistro that serves good pub food.
Coogee Pavilion has nailed casual dining. The ground floor is where it’s at during the daytime hours, with a laid-back vibe and an excellent menu that caters to a variety of tastes. There’s also a games area that’ll keep the kids (and kids-at-heart) at bay. When the sun sets, head to the rooftop, which features four bars and a wraparound balcony for the best views of the beach.
