Henry Summer is as cool as a pina colada on a hot day. Part cocktail bar, part wine bar verging on pub, it’s a massive tropical-meets-urban venue with frangipanis, palms and hanging plants.

Clint Nolan’s latest venture is a breath of fresh air. Literally. It’s a giant walled courtyard with room for 900 people, with different spaces for drinking and eating, including an undercover lounge with velvet sofas and cane chairs.

Catch up, party, get into the vibe. Music is soul and disco. Celebrate with top-end bubbles or chill with a summer spritz with homemade kombucha.

Food is the full spread with DIY pick-up at the pink neon sign. The dishes are straightforward, uncomplicated and just what you want. Bring your dog for lunch – the menu has “Healthy Dog Treat – Kangaroo Jerky” for $2.50.
