Howlin' Wolf Whiskey Bar Wollongong
The Howling Wolf Bar is the local authority on whiskey and with a line-up of live music, you’re basically guaranteed a good night out here. Don’t worry, whiskey isn’t all that these guys get right – the cocktail list is definitely worth a look in too.
North Wollongong Hotel
Featuring three bars, a notable beer garden and a gourmet bistro, the ‘North Gong’ is an iconic institution in the Illawarra region. The go-to place to start or finish your night, The North Gong may be famous but they have a self-proclaimed infamous Schnitty. Try it if you’re game, it’s called the Ultimate for a reason.
His Boy Elroy
His Boy Elroy is a little laneway bar and burger joint that’s all about serving up burgers and brisket – à la South American. The shakes are compulsory, well, they ought to be when they’re this good. What’s not compulsory is the shot of bourbon you can add to them, but we think this is a very necessary add on.
