With open spaces and a relaxed atmosphere, Manly Pacific Hotel's ground floor restaurant, Charlie Bar, is a great spot for a cocktail. There are plenty of reasons locals love this place; it plays host to many while watching sport, chatting with friends or just filling up on the Modern Australian fare on offer. Between the wine list and the ocean views, you'll never want to leave.

Charlies Bar is on the ground level of the Manly Pacific Hotel in North Steyne directly opposite Manly Beach.

Prior to being the Charlie Bar, the ground floor of the Manly Pacific Hotel was a rather daggy place best known for live music and dark, questionable corners with enthusiastically spinning lights. Luckily it received a bit of designer attention and now radiates with earthy, modern furnishings and a relaxed atmosphere. The entrance leads onto a large bar which services both beverage and food needs. Above a line-up of beer taps you’ll find a succinct menu of typical pub fare mixed with more creative Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. Order what you’d like, grab a number and find a seat. Here you have the choice of several areas: you may opt for alfresco tables facing Manly beach, central banquettes suited to larger groups or high tables in the TAB lounge which allow avid sports fans to bet as they munch. There is even a gimmicky (but adorable) area made up of hanging chairs and impractical little tables. It is a delightful way to drink through a bottle of wine or a cocktail and pick on some of the smaller offerings on the menu.

When it comes to food, there is some scope in the dishes, most are presented well and you get bang for your buck with generous portions. Light starters like sourdough bruschetta with Danish fetta, fresh basil and olive oil or fennel, salt and chili squid with red pepper aioli are a good introduction and can double up as plates to be shared among friends. If you’re looking for something a little more filling, head straight for pub favourites like pizzas, chicken schnitzels, sirloin steaks or the “Charlie burger” (filled with bacon, onion, Swiss cheese, beetroot, tomato relish and served with fries). Charlie Bar also has great daily specials like $10 steak night on Wednesdays and Thursday $10 pizza and beer.
