I recently popped into Donny's Bar in Manly to see if the recent hype of the establishment is real. From my experience I can tell you that this is a definite must try if your in town; the New York loft-style design is welcoming and reminded me a lot of a stylish bachelor pad.
What's it got to offer?
The cafe is Donny's most recent edition to the venue, but just as designer as the rest. The space offers delicious snacks and fine coffee, but also doubles up as a whisky bar going into the evening.
The restaurant is located up a spiral staircase - one thing to definitely be careful of after a few whiskies or cocktails. In our time there, we tasted a few of their most popular dishes and the food certainly lived up to its reputation. Make sure you try the BBQ tofu steak and grilled rump steak as these were our favourites, and will surely be yours too.
In terms of drinks, there's everything a man could ask for, a great selection of whiskies, beer and of course wines. Although we went into the venue early we were told the restaurant and bar gets very busy on weekends and has live bands playing through the day and night.
