The Bucket List is the ultimate casual chic beachside venue where guests can wine and dine mere metres from Bondi Beach. Consisting of 3 main dining areas, an outdoor casual area and a warming fireplace inside for the cooler months, this is the perfect place to sample beautiful, ‘bucket list’ appropriate-named cocktails with close friends or to enjoy as a function venue for social and corporate events. Head chef Tom Walton (as seen on Ready Steady Cook and major events) leads the kitchen with over 12 years of experience. His love for local produce and sustainable seafood can be seen in an array of dishes from light nibbles and share plates to delectable seafood and meat dishes, including a dedicated children’s menu. Pop into the venue to sample their daily specials.

Location, location, location. Just a few steps from the golden sands of Bondi Beach, visitors to The Bucket List can catch a bus from Bondi Junction (10-minutes) or there is also paid parking on Queen Elizabeth Drive.

Sydney living doesn’t get much sweeter than this. Sprawling out onto Bondi’s promenade, within the Bondi Pavilion, is The Bucket List. It may be touted as the ‘playground of the Pacific’ by The Bucket Lists’ owners but to me it feels more like the ‘playground of Bondi’s beautiful people.’ Loose white singlets, Tsubi shorts and Ray Bans are the order of the day, as are ice buckets of lime wedge-topped Coronas and jugs of sangria or Pimms.

Snag a table outside and you’ll be blessed with panoramic views, not only of Bondi Beach but also of the Eastern Suburbs hipsters who wander along the promenade out front. The best bit though? Whatever day of the week, night or day, the atmosphere is abuzz. It feels like nobody has a worry in the world – no work deadlines, no houses to clean or mortgages to pay. Everything here is happy and carefree.

Despite its location, the prices are reasonable and the food offers a range of nibbling options, as well as more substantial delights. Looking to impress an out-of-towner? The Bucket List is your answer.
