Bellucis has been lurking in its art-deco building at the end of Wooley St in Dickson for longer than I care to remember. I had the family part of my 21st birthday there.
After a major refit and expansion they’ve re-opened and done some rather inspired things.
The old restaurant is there with very tasteful wood panelling and a new emphasis on steaks.
But in the corner area they now have a very nice looking pub glorying in the name “Sub-urban”. On the Sunday afternoon we were there the staff were bright eyed and extremely helpful and friendly.
Drinks aren’t cheap, but aren’t excessively priced and they do an attractive cocktail list. There also doing a nice line of tapas.
Basically they seem to have taken the best aspects of inner-north watering holes and mixed it all up with a large dash of wood panelling.
With live music advertised for four days of the week (Fri-Sun) it’s got some potential to turn into a very friendly little boozer.
Definitely a spot to get a drink while waiting for take-away.
