The Neighbourhood Bondi boys are taking Old World British fodder and giving it a New World Australian twist in their new Darlinghurst venture.
It’s called Henrietta Supper Club and we know what you’re thinking: who’s Henrietta? Simon McGoram, the bar/front of house manager at Neighbourhood Bondi, has the answer and honestly, a bit of historical trivia for you Sydney-siders.
“Where Darlinghurst is now used to be called Henrietta Town. So this is our tip of the hat to her,” he says, tipping his trucker cap in emphasis.
Wait, what? Her? Here’s a little more context: Henrietta was the wife of Governor Lachlan Macquarie.
You know, that man you learned about in school who was once the Governor of NSW and who Macquarie Hills, Macquarie Point, Macquarie Place (we think you get the point) was named after.
No? Doesn’t matter. You’re here for the food, not the history lesson.
Destined to become your late-night hub, Henrietta will open daily from 6pm and drip with lashing of colonialism – from the decor right down to the menu. Expect old world English/colonial cuisine (e.g. Scotch eggs) with a new fangled Aussie spin.
Where: Level 1, 292-294 Victoria Street, Darlinghurst
Opening Hours: Tuesday to Sunday from 6pm
