Palace Hotel, Haymarket

IMG_1432The Palace Hotel covers all the bases. Located on the corner of George and Hay Street in Haymarket, it places you in the middle of a business and entertainment district for a great modern pub dinner in a refurbished 1887 building.

Unwind before you go to a show at the Capitol theatre which is located close by. Alternately dine alfresco, drink at their bar or watch sport on their many TV screens. The friendly bar staff and waiters who genuinely enjoy what they do will make you comfortable with a bit of friendly banter.

The service is fast and it won’t take long before you choose from an extensive selection of tap beer and a great cocktail menu. The delicious cocktails are very reasonably priced. HOT PEAR ($14.90) is a fiery and sweet pear and cinnamon whisky sour and the MEIKO KAJI ($17.90) is a sweet combination of orange blossom liqueur and peach and Japanese whisky, and is a tasty and tangy treat.

IMG_1523Don’t miss out on the Thursday special when cocktails are 2 for 1 after 6pm and Friday between 11am until 5pm some meals are $10 when you purchase a drink.

12Felling brave? Then attempt the Ghost Pepper Chilli Chicken Wing challenge! DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES?

IMG_1463Pay $10, sign a waiver and be presented with chicken wings doused in ghost pepper chilli. If you can eat them in under 10 minutes and don’t drink anything for 5 minutes afterwards, you get a full refund…. which you will find you will then spend on drinks to quench the burn anyway.

 Sign your life away…this is serious stuff!

IMG_1471You can do it son!

Vinyl gloves are supplied and highly recommended if you choose to participate. There are a lot of takers for this sport so it’s is also a lot of fun to watch.

IMG_1414If successful, you’ll be rewarded with photographs on the WALL OF FAME and a cheer from the onlookers.

The Wagyu beef burger with tomato lettuce cheese pickle and beetroot (19.5)

A nice all-round aussie burger with a soft sesame bun. I’m a big fan of beetroot in burgers so I thought that was a nice touch.

Crispy atlantic salmon served with cauliflower pure, green beans, chorizo and gazpacho (26)

The salmon was nicely cooked and served with strong south american flavours to give it a nice boost.
