Casual cocktails in Newcastle's very own lounge bar
Lounge bars conjure up images of sultry summer nights, hazy smoke-filled rooms with debonair, whiskey-drinking gentlemen and cocktail swilling socialites. Whilst Bar Petite maybe a slightly more modernised version, there is still an undeniable feeling of sophistication in this luxury lounge bar.
Located within the Newcastle Beaches Novotel, it's the ideal bar to relax, get comfortable and mingle with friends.
The frequently rotated drinks list is a collection of local and imported wines, ciders, spirits, tap beers and cocktails, catering to all tastes and styles. Although traditional dining in is an option, the share plate menu is favoured and complements the easy listening acoustic tunes that feature on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings.
There's no wrong time to visit Bar Petite. Its seductive lounge-chair mood makes for the perfect winter retreat while the chilled outdoor courtyard setting is the ideal place to cool down on those hot summer nights. The on-tap $5 Peroni Sunday sessions make for a perfect excuse to get out and about and are a fav with the locals.
It's not uncommon to find owner Mick Kearney mingling with his guests with Mick's business style taking a more traditional approach, preferring to be on hand to make guests feel welcome and ensure a good night is had by all.
