Bogart's Bar and Grill will take you from the heat of Parap to the glamour of old Hollywood in one rattle of a cocktail shaker. The decor is a kitsch mish mash of vintage movie posters, decoupage, cane furniture and animal print lounges. The menu is Modern Australian, with plenty of seafood options. There are some good beers and wines behind the bar, but if cocktails are your thing, try out one of the mixologist's retro concoctions.

Bogart’s Bar and Grill in Parap will give you an eating-out experience like nothing else in Darwin – from the deliciously kitsch decor to the unique dishes, you’ll come away from Bogart’s feeling as though you’ve had a real dining adventure. The food is wholesome and hearty northern European-inspired cuisine. The ubiquitous and friendly proprietor will be happy to sit at your table and explain each dish to you, along with where he drew his inspiration from in designing the menu. It’s obvious that his chef shares in the passion, as the food is presented with a fresh, original and daring twist on familiar favourites.

For an entree, try the grilled calamari with banana mayonnaise or Swedish gravlax cured salmon with dill mustard. Main courses consist of lamb, chicken, meatballs, steak and vegetarian options. The aptly titled “Plank Steak” is the signature dish of Bogart’s. A thick cut of eye fillet smothered in bearnaise sauce is served on a wooden plank with tasty treats such as bacon, mushrooms, beans and mashed potato. The dining room has a lovely, laid-back ambience and a recent refurbishment has seen sofas added, where you can enjoy a drink before retreating to your table. Thankfully, the charm of the original restaurant has remained – old movie stars glance down on you from the walls, and flowing pieces of fabric hanging from the ceiling keep the lighting low and the mood casual. Bogart’s can be sparse during the week, but is bursting at the seams on Fridays and Saturdays with live music and functions in full swing.

Great place for a good meal. Nice atmosphere and very good food. The rack of lamb is exceptionally good and the apple and pear tarte is even better. I'd eat here anytime and I'll be  02/11/2012
