Small bars have a new/old address: 529 The Terrace by Kian West

For our older readers The Terrace Bar has had many other names, but to a younger generation it was the first, potentially the catalyst for a small bar cultural movement across Newcastle. Because of this icon status in some regards, the previous vision of The Terrace was a dark and dingy kind-of cool in its makeshift hippie-come-hipster styling that really was just a reflection of the can-do attitude. But all that changed when it closed the doors in 2015. 

Now known as 529 The Terrace, it has had more than a coat of paint, with floors replaced, bathrooms, some of the most beautiful bars upstairs and down, as well as the namesake Terrace now really becoming a space that you could see many a Sunday session being started at. 

Being one of the bigger small bars I'll be interested to see what they deliver in terms of entertainment to drive engagement with the stellar venue, definitely worth a look over the long weekend.

PAPA_2 Newcastle finally has the Bagel Bar it deserves. Papa's Bagel Bar is this incredible little space in the city, verging onto Newcastle West opposite the City Campus of Hunter TAFE lives a fantastic spot for coffee and food. Don't worry if you aren't familiar with Bagels, we weren't, but once you scan the menu you will quickly realise there is something for everyone, sweet or savoury, lunch, breakfast or a snack.

We recommend booking your next meeting there as the perfect cover for checking out the spot. Already been? Why not suggest their amazing catering services for the next work/family function. #delicious

 

PAPA_1Place: Papa's Bagel Bar Address: Corner of Devonshire Street & Hunter Street Newcastle West NSW 2302 Australia, Hours: Mon-Fri 7:00am till 3:00pm ....

Sat 7:00am till 2:00pm

Why We Love it: BAGELS! Bagels seem like a real treat in Australia, we don't really have a culture surrounding them so it is a bit of a novelty food in some ways but with so many delicious toppings and flavoured bagels to choose from. PLUS! They do this real special thing to coffee, if you order a cappuccino the chocolate is grated fresh onto the top and makes it feel all the more special.
