Chinoiserie

A couple of weekends ago I went to the cocktail lounge atop the Eastern Hotel in Bondi Junction for Evan's birthday celebration. We had a fabulous long and lazy afternoon sipping beverage items and eating gourmet pizzas. The cocktail bar has been done in a sort of pan-Asian style decor, with lots of deep leather sofas, billowing curtains and vintage chinoiserie. Quite fab.




Lanterns


It was surprisingly quiet the Saturday afternoon that we were there, but it did mean that we had the place almost to ourselves. It was a great afternoon, with lots of laughter and conversation. I had to snap some pics of some of the details of the decor because it was really quite lovely.

I love that top shot... the depth of field, the orange versus the blue, the lanterns themselves... very speccy!

Yes beautiful photos. That top lounge/restaurant at the Eastern Hotel seems never to have been popular in daytime since it was refurbished as part of the Westfield construction. I presume it works better at night.

I'm sure you're right Victor, it would be a great venue in the evenings.
