Situated on the bustling hub of King Street by Newtown Station, The Bank is a master of late night venues and a Newtown institution. Although you can’t see it from the street, locals know that in past the public bar the sprawling venue hides Newtown’s best beer garden, an outdoor terrace, Uncle Hops craft beer bar, live music from Sydney’s best new bands upstairs in Waywards.
The Bank also has one of Sydney’s leading cocktail bartenders, and delicious pub food with South American flair. The Bank is the perfect spot for a drink outdoors on a sunny day, and then transforms into the ultimate party destination when the sun goes down. The Bank is a reflection of Newtown – creative, multi-faceted, and accessible to all – something for everyone under one big roof!
Yacht racing is a popular sport and high-performance catamarans have been developed specifically for the lake. The design of the Alinghi 5, the defender of the 2010 America's Cup, was influenced by those racing catamarans. The best-known event runs from Geneva to the end of the lake and back.
EAT & DRINK
French cuisine consists of cooking traditions and practices from France, famous for the rich tastes and subtle nuances with long and rich history. France, a country famous for its agriculture and independently minded peasants, was long a creative powerbase for delicious recipes, that are both healthy and refined.
The beauty of the shores of the lake and of the sites of many of the places near its banks has long been celebrated. On the south side the mountains of Savoy and Valais are for the most part rugged and sombre, while those of the northern shore fall in gentle vine-covered slopes, thickly set with villages and castles.
