I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Central is longer trading, a Whisky & Cocktail bar called Babylon has opened in the premises (August 2018)
Crafted by Matilda Bay
145 King Street has had many incarnations, the latest is a bar and restaurant simply called Central. Built in 1903 Central Hall has been a theatre, Methodist mission and a hatted restaurant. The historic building still has chandeliers and sweeping staircases. There are several themed areas including a mini cinema room and a cafe area at the front.
There is a wide range of Matilda Bay beers on tap as well as a good selection of wines and cocktails. On Tuesday to Friday there are happy hours from 4-6pm where they offer $5 house wine, $10 cocktails and $15 jugs of beer.
