2. Totti’s by Merivale

The Royal has been an iconic watering hole in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs since 1907. Merivale reopened the hotel’s much-loved front bar in September, preserving the classic local as a place to grab a quick drink and game of pool,  and just opened Totti’s last month.

It’s a casual Italian eatery of woodfired meats, hand-crafted pastas and classic Italian cocktails in a relaxed, 185-seater restaurant and courtyard – an evolution of Eggert’s Dirty Italian Disco pop-up that won over the hearts and taste buds of Sydneysiders at the Tennyson Hotel last year.

3. Bondi to Manly Walk

In the words of the artist: “Masculinity is in flux. The effects of traditional masculinity on the male psyche have revealed the extent to which men are both the jailors and prisoners of their own emotional wellbeing. Gender stereotypes are being questioned
