This revamped pub is a local favourite. Sink a casual beer at the front bar or wander into the luxe wine bar and succumb to vino temptation.
Rozelle's much-loved Rose Shamrock and Thistle has been reborn with a succinct new name and a sexy new look. The refit is undeniably upmarket, but happily the friendly local vibe remains.
The Weeds' front bar retains much of the previous pub's easy-going charm, with the addition of plasma TVs for those who want to watch their sports with friends.
Out the back, owner Todd Salter's refit feels a tad more sophisticated. Ornate wooden chandeliers decorate the ceiling of the lofty main room, along with communal tables, leather banquettes, a recycled sandstone fireplace and fabric light sculptures in shades of red and orange. Artisan brews are a feature, with an extensive range of boutique offerings such as Little Creatures and Old Speckled Hen on tap.
The wine bar is deckled out in luxe leather armchairs and soft-lit lamps. The lounge area is equally opulent, with red velvet banquettes and magenta Florence Broadhurst wallpaper. Kick back and enjoy something from the extensive wine list, or peruse the short but savvy cocktail collection.
