7 Spots for Friday Afternoon Knockoffs

Take off your professional hat and wind down from a hard week of work with some Friday afternoon fun. Here is a list of seven knock off spots worth checking out this weekend in Port Macquarie.

Bar Florian

Indulge in the classic Italian ritual of Aperitivo featuring cured meats, cheeses and condiments complimented by locally brewed beers, bespoke wines and premium spirits. Bar Florian was inspired by owners Gino and Maree’s travels to Italy and aims to give you an authentic Italian experience that will make you feel as though you have been transported to the Mediterranean.

Chop ‘n’ Chill

Enjoy after work drinks by the water at this relaxed bar in Port Macquarie. This is the perfect place to share a bottle of wine with some friends, while grazing on share places inspired by Southeast Asian flavours.

Finnian’s Irish Tavern

Escape the office and enjoy Friday afternoons at Finnian’s featuring $5 beers and wines from 4pm to 6pm. Stick around for dinner to indulge some classic pub grub including Schnitzels, parmigianas, burgers and even a traditional Irish stew.

Botanic Cocktail Bar

Grab a seat by the bar and watch the talented cocktail bartenders work their magic mixing concoctions of bespoke spirits with seasonal ingredients at this Port Macquarie bar. Try the ‘Puff Puff Give’, a specialty cocktail made with Havana 7yr, cherry, fresh pressed lemon, red fruits reductions, sweet shiraz, and garnished with a ‘herb spiff.’

Following major refurbishments, the Tacking Point Tavern is set to become a state of the art venue comprising of a beer garden, sports bar and bistro. Unwind over tap beers, served alongside modern pub meals while live sport plays on the big screen.

The Beach House

When it comes to drinks with a view, it doesn’t get much better than The Beach House. Located steps away from the water’s edge and with regular live music performances, this is the most idyllic place to unwind after work with a bottle of rose, an antipasto platter and good company.
