Woollahra Hotel

They say friendship is catching up over good food and something to drink. This is exactly what Andrea and I arranged last Wednesday. Having not seen Andrea since December we decided a long afternoon lunch filled with cocktails and a tasty food spread was a must.

Living on the Lower North Shore, I always find myself heading to the Eastern Suburbs to catch up with friends… Because no one from the East wants to go over the bridge and the East is spoilt for choice when it comes to eateries such as The Woollahra Hotel.

Agreeing that the Woollahra Hotel was the perfect venue for our afternoon catch up, we made a booking mid afternoon last week at The Terrace. The intimate rooftop courtyard creates the perfect sun soaked afternoon – think leafy green walls, friendly bar staff, a colourful food spread all whilst sipping on some fruity cocktails.

You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to cocktails at The Terrace; we decided to leave things in the hands of the expert – Alex the mixologist. Alex got us; we were served the Splice of Life, Tommy’s Margarita and an Elderflower & Lychee Martini.

 We went ahead and ordered a Charcuterie board to accompany our cocktails, whilst looking over the menu to select mains.

Over the years I’ve become quite the antipasto connoisseur. At 26 I’ve probably tried more antipasto boards than most do in a lifetime. The Woollahra hotel doesn’t disappoint here –  serving a sexy looking charcuterie board with organic sourdough drowned to perfection in truffle oil. Putting it up there in the top section of charcuterie boards i’ve tried. 

I love dining with friends who have the same idea as me when it comes to ordering.

A good looking bowl of fries is always must. We sheepishly finished off every last one.

If we didn’t Snapchat, Instagram and blog about it, did we really eat at The Woollahra Hotel?

Surprisingly there was no prior conversation about outfits, however we both somehow got the same memo – blue asymmetric mid length skirt teamed with a little black singlet. Asymmetric skirts are always fun to style, I love that when you want to show-off a bit of leg you you can swing them one way to catch a few eyes… Or simply throw on a pair of Adidas Superstars and you’re that relaxed causal chic everyone wants to be friends with.

Parting ways we started planning out next afternoon date, but not before Andrea is off on her tropical holiday… I let her know I’ll be living vicariously through her Instagram feed for the next week.
