Bar Fly: Onyx Lounge

This week, Bar Fly babe Amie Barbeler got a bit hot under the collar in Newtown...

Onyx Lounge might be a gorgeous bar with a cool vibe, but unfortunately the heat was the first thing I noticed... and I can't even blame the temperatures that were rising amongst the group of speed daters getting their single mingle on at the bar.

My date and I decide to combat our upper-lip sweats with a few cocktails.

I try a recent addition to the menu, the Blood Orange Margarita ($15.90). It's perfect – refreshing, sweet and tarty.

My date beelines for the White Chocolate Passionfruit Martini ($15.90), which is every bit as delicious as it sounds.

We inhale the Fondue ($14): think grilled slices of chorizo and red peppers smothered with cheese sauce and served with warm tortilla pieces, ready for the dipping.

We follow up our cheesefest with the Corn Fritters ($14) – they're everything a fritter should aspire to be.

If Onyx can chill out a little, I might have met my match.
