In absence of any real beaches in the city, make do with an imitation in this laid back bar and restaurant, serving seafood, burgers and beer on tap. Surf Club is an entirely al-fresco set-up and the perfect weekend chill-out zone, spread over two levels. Downstairs is the bar and kitchen whilst in the upper level resides a massive wooden deck with views over Streets Beach and the river. The catwalk, however, is an additional thin platform that dishes out a bird’s eye view over towards the city.
