In this week’s Friday Five, we look at the best places in the Penrith LGA to grab a delicious cocktail!
5. Red Cow (Station St, Penrith)
Penrith’s cocktail surprise packet! The Red Cow may have all the hallmarks of a traditional pub but it’s also got an awesome cocktail list and is coming into its own in this arena.
You can’t go past the ‘Pineapple Whiskey Sour’ or the ‘Lemon Cheesecake’ cocktail, which features vodka, cookie syrup, lemon and cream.
Before you knock it, try it! The Red Cow will surprise you.
4. The Union (Union Lane, Penrith)
Tapas restaurant The Union not only has awesome food, but their delicious cocktails are to die for! If you’re not heading in for food, check out the small bar downstairs!
If you’re feeling 18 again, try the ‘Midori Splice’ – sweet delight! The ‘Caipirinha’ offers a legitimate taste of Brazil while traditional cocktail lovers will love a ‘Mojito’ or ‘Strawberry Daiquiri’.
Cocktails are priced at around the $15 mark.
3. Trevi (Woodriff St, Penrith)
Italian restaurant Trevi not only has great food, but also impresses with a great cocktail range including an awesome selection of Martinis.
You don’t have to eat here either – just head to the bar if you’d prefer to get straight into these delightful concoctions.
Try the ‘Lemon Meringue Pie’ cocktail or our personal favourite, the ‘Flirtini’.
2. Dom’s Cocktail Lounge (Panthers)
What we love about Dom’s is that Panthers has gone all out to create an authentic 1920s style vibe inside the Leagues Club. Dom’s is totally different to anywhere else in the club.
There’s a range of classic cocktails here and some local favourites too, like the ‘Pink Panther’ and ‘Blue Hawaii’.
Keep an eye out for special nights too – where discounted cocktails are on offer!
1. Mr Watkins (High St, Penrith)
Mr Watkins is a trend setter in Penrith, helping to re-shape the area’s nightlife. There’s some awesome cocktails here, reasonably priced at around the $16-$20 mark.
Try ‘The Six’ which features banana liqueur, Baileys Irish Cream, salted caramel and Allpress Coffee! Or if you’re more of a gin fan, the ‘White Gold’ or ‘Rum Row’ are must-trys!
You’ll also find a range of classic cocktails here – everything from a ‘Cosmo’ to a ‘Whiskey Sour’ and ‘Aperol Spritz’.
