Poetry on Poles
Globe Lane is a little lane off Crown Street Mall. The start of Globe Lane looks a little quiet and uninviting ,but as you venture down into the heart of Globe Lane you are faced with cafes, bars and little boutiques.
Globe Lane is an up and coming precinct of Wollongong, over the past year it has been part of the Wonderwalls Festival, hosted concerts for Blender Festival and New Year's Eve. There have been more cafes pop up as well.
The one thing that goes unnoticed is the poetry on the lamp posts at the bottom of the lane. All there thanks to South Coast Writer's Centre. When you go exploring you must check them out!
So what does Globe Lane have to offer:
My favourite is Kurtosh. An Hungarian cake shop that makes the traditional Hungarian pastry known as Chimney Cake on the spot, as well as a range of other cakes. They cut the cake to however much you like. The places is very trendy with all the pipes revealed and locally sourced drinks. Kurtosh House is opened 7 days a week 8am to 10pm.
Across from Kurtosh you will find San Churro. This Spanish chocolate franchise is famous for churros. It is opened 7 days a week varying in time but is opened between 10am to 10pm.
The Little Prince has to be one of the first little bars that popped up some years ago. This hidden bar is located next to the Myers entrance. They have a range of drinks and modern tapas food. This bar is strictly no children and is open Tuesday to Saturday 4pm to 10pm or midnight.
His Boy Elroy – This little bar is pretty much opened for breakfast, lunch and dinner. When you are walking down Globe Lane it is the first sign of activity you will find. His Boy Elroy is opened 7 days a week at various times but every day between 9am and 10pm.
Beach Burrito "the perfect mix of beachside culture, art, music and tequila". This pretty much sums up what it looks like. This Mexican restaurant is hard to miss, you could mistake it for a boat almost. They have an extensive menu with a ranch of weekly specials one being $3 Tacos on Tuesday. Beach Burrito is opened Tuesday to Sunday at various times but between 11:30am and 10pm.
