Stoked we'll finally have a surfer hangout on the beach again soon, after the demise of other legends like the Summerstrand Inn, Hollywood Hotel and Mansions from days gone by.
Work is nearly complete on the deck and restaurant, and it should be opening soon. I popped in to take some shots of the interior - which includes some crazy kiff wallpaper which are collages of surfers and surf spots from back in the day. If you're a PE ballie you might well find a shot of yourself here!
Thanks to ou's like Jonty Hansford, Malcolm Turner, Barry White, Ian Millar & Peter Schwartz for making their vintage images available. Their shots are also used in the rad lightbox above the bar. Still to come are a few full size pics on the walls as well - some line-up shots of the bays surf spots.
The view from the deck is killer. You'll be able to have a post surf dop and chow whilst watching the ou's pull in at Clubhouse and Avo's. Hard to beat that!
The takeaway section has opened, so you can pull past for some kiff burgers, pizza, wraps etc. With names like the Pollock Burger and the Avalanche pizza I reckon they on to something good! And you can just pull up in your cabbie and flick your lights or hoot - and the ou's will come take your order.
