I fondly remember going to Manuka back in the early 90’s for family lunches and dinners , it was a great place to take visiting friends and relatives and it left a lasting impression.
Back then it was a destination however as the years passed and development demolished, and loud rnb clubs gave the main strip a bad name, it lost its appeal.
However there is a ray of light, with word of lots of new developments happening:
- — I have heard the aged Verve is being redeveloped and will change to Cream.
— Bellucis on the corner is also being revamped and extended.
— Urban Pantry has now opened on the old site of the Tryst this place is a Silo bakery emulation.
— A new bar will open in Palmerston lane towards the end of the year.
— Also the old Pangea is being transformed into a bar aptly named the Manuka Bar.
All this activity could assist in once again making Manuka a destination for Canberra.
