  • Not a museum! Having heard of the Sydney Powerhouse museum, I assumed this was one too. However it’s a theatre house for comedy and plays etc. A really beautiful building in a wonderful setting. The riverfront has a bar and cafe which is open to the public along the walkway. The building itself is a historical brick warehouse, converted in an industrial way, retaining a lot of charm. Original graffiti remains in the walls and there is a grand feeling of space. It’s beautifully lit and designed. The location is easy to access too.
  • "Proud Mary" - Friendly, efficient staff. Food very well presented, quick service and value for money. A happy environment amongst fellow patrons. Appeared to be pet friendly.
