So…I have been a local at the BBC in Kingston for some two years. It has been a great place to socialise, make some good friends and to just chill out listening to jazz (a good local act) or have a good meal.
Recently, the place was accused of having the most expensive beer in town – and rightly so. I enjoy a beer, but was concerned when the price of a particular beer doubled overnight. Hell, when I worked there it was hard enough to convince a bloke that $12 was a good price for an imported beer…but I digress.
I won’t defend the pricing of boutique beers, but to be frank there is no other bar in the neighbourhood that has a chef that has had some world class experience. Early in the week you can get a meal deal for schnitzels, mussels and then steak, but come Thursday through to the weekend, the menu shifts to restaurant standards.
The place may appear to be for the well-heeled, but look a little closer and the place welcomes the full spectrum, from families, to people looking for a place to hold a work function and then right down to the lads (and ladies) looking for a non-threatening place to meet others in an environment where you don’t have to get entirely off chops in order to pick up!
Anyway, give it a look and I recommend Jimi chef’s signature steak washed down with a stella…fella.
