This was a bit of a find, went on a Tuesday when they had two meals for the price of one. Also Trivia Night!!!! Music was a bit loud if you wanted to have a good chat but not over the top. Service was good.

The bartenders on duty passed the ingredients test and we were away watching the ingredients readily being administered into the shaker appropriately.

After a run-in with a shonky taxi driver our original plans to dine at the night markets were thwarted so we chose the Empire instead. This is a quirky establishment with interesting decor. the staff were lovely and the food was quite adequate also. Enjoyed our meal and the ambiance.

Had a quick stop here for a couple of arvo beers witha few friends. Great atmosphere and good beers on tap. We sat in the booths which are good for a group of people. Make sure you check out the toilet signs haha.

You have to try this place. Stumbled in on a week night. Between 5-7pm the pizza specials are $5 for a good size pizza made in a very traditional way. Also drink specials and friendly staff. Is no 5 star but a great venue central on The Valley intersection. Really enjoyed.

Deep leather booths, relaxed bar atmosphere. Good brick oven pizzas. Get there between 4:00-7:00 and pizzas are $5.00
