Bar Fly: Newtown Social Club


Amie Barbeler wrapped her lips around some balls. Something about this sentence doesn't seem right...



The Newtown Social Club's fancy renovation has taken a lot of balls. Meatballs, to be precise.



Once reminiscent of your generic sticky-floored pub, the Social has recently been transformed into a hip and inviting place. No more schnitty's and burgers grace the menu though, instead, the focus is now firmly upon platters and meatballs.



Punchy Ginger Passion Snap ($16) cocktails in hand, my date and I grabbed a seat in the newly designated cocktail lounge area that is snuggled underneath the stairs, and sorted ourselves out with a Charcuterie Platter ($26) of Serrano ham, chorizo, smoked pork belly (speck), house olives and romesco dipping sauce.



Afterwards, we slid into one of the comfy booths that now line that wall of the dining area and decided to share Wagyu Beef Balls ($19) with Roma tomatoes and mash.



Juicy, hearty comfort food with loads of flavour - can't complain.
