Corner Bar Rozelle

Everyone has a local... you know the place you always end up with your BF after a long week at work or maybe even on a sneaky Wednesday. Ours is the Corner Bar Rozelle, a quirky little bar that has more personality than Rebel Wilson. As far as bars go it's far from the expected.

In fact the only thing predictable about The Corner Bar is the friendly service, great food and a good hit of afternoon sun. The menu consists of uncomplicated bites to share  like pizza slabs and antipasto plates and the prices are reasonable. 

We always order 2 glasses of the French Rose and a pint of chips. Arguably the best chips in town they are served with aioli accompanied by Green Tabasco sauce which is a marriage in heaven.

We frequent The Corner Bar weekly mostly for the delicious, fat hot chips, but it’s quirky nature makes it a relaxed, fun place to chill. 

When we say quirky we aren’t kidding and this eccentricity is best illustrated if we described it’s bathroom. Dimly lit by fairy lights your greeted by chirping birds upon entry and as you do your business your surrounded by barbies, gnomes and strange mannequins. All staring blankly right at you while you take a tinkle.

If that’s not enough there’s a bike centre stage and the loo paper spins right off the handle bar. It’s kitch but it’s fabulous. It’s the injection of fun that the Balmain/Rozelle area sometimes lacks. The concrete bar is clad with recycled timber and  surrounding walls are decorated with Taxidermy and bull sculls. Hanging baskets of Ferns are placed sporadically throughout so there’s lots of greenery. It’s a small venue so tiny tables oppose a long leather banquet on the northern side. At night it has a warm inviting ambience and in warmer weather huge windows open completely to the street.

If your a lover of people watching take a table on the pavement and catch some afternoon rays.  The arranchini balls are another fav of ours and the Negroni here hits the spot. 

This is a real locals bar, the owner tells me it’s also  quite popular for first dates and looking around the dress code looks pretty casual. It’s the kind of place you could wear double denim or ripped jeans without feeling under dressed. Hipsters  it’s totally your vibe and the only thing I wouldn’t wear here is something super polished. It’s all about attitude so Miss straight laced I think you might wanna save the LBD for somewhere else. 


I love the comfort of theses Decjuba vegan leather pants. Stretchy and mid waisted they are a flattering fit. My top is a vintage Harley Davidson Tee that I picked up in New York many years ago. It’s a fine cotton so makes it easy to knot at the waist and as I left the house I grabbed my hubby’s  lightweight denim shirt to tie loosely around my hips. My shoes are from Nine West, the sunnies are Le Specs and my velvet burgundy bag is a shameless dupe of the Channel Boy bag. Not quite the same price tag Rebecca Minkoff knows how to replicate the coveted statement pieces. This little baby serves me well and until my Chanel fund grows this is as close to a Boy bag as Ill get for quite a while.

I can’t begin to tell you how much I adore a full black outfit especially when it includes a blazer. I find it to be one of the easiest looks to rock especially when you add a heel. In this case mine are from Siren, a brand I love for on trend pieces. My jeans are from Zara as is my Blazer. Meanwhile the cami is from Intimissimi, I picked it up in Italy and wish that I had done so in every colour since it is the perfect jean / top combo. My bag is from Zara, the store has amazing little finds when it comes to bags thats for sure. Don’t you just love the little wasp detail?
