The Village @ Kings Cross

“Oh le village” says Monsieur, “this is the name of a nightclub in Juan les Pin!”

“Well this one was the former Favela, they turned from nightclub to bar.”

“I can tell…” he goes, trying to push me into asking him for more…

“how can you?” (can’t believe it works)

“Dark ceilings” he says… And as I look above our head, I see what he sees, white chalk on dark boards… that almost makes me want to have dark ceilings too!

So this is pretty much, an excuse for the photo below, darkish. I love what they’ve done. Love the light bulbs tied together, the long tables that give the place a communal feel. It’s a bit windy, so I’m happy we get to be sort of inside more than outside (plus we can’t smell the smoke of cigarettes!)

For long, we’ve avoided Kings Cross. This is today, the closest we’ve been to, and Monsieur thinks the place ranks above what he expected. It’s clean, doesn’t have anything awkward, and the music they chose is actually not bad!

Monsieur orders at the bar and is being told the jug will be carried over to our table! And it is: Tah dah!

The balance of the cocktail is just spot on for both of us (I like my cocktails sweeeet, and Monsieur likes girly drinks too) There’s plenty of ice, so we do not feel the alcohol much, but I had a light headache the morning after (Monsieur and I do not drink alcohol that often anymore). Food is ordered at a separate counter, and as we’re Wednesday, we get the Italian pizza at half its price (yeah!) paying just AUD 9.5 instead of AUD 19, so worth it!!!!

The crust is ultra thin it’s crunchy (I love it that way!) and the toppings amount is generous, there’s ham, salami, mushrooms, artichokes, roma tomatoes, mozarella, rocket salad and parmegiano, great!

Overall, bill came down to just AUD 34.5. Loved the décor, loved the food, and loved the passionfruit cachaça jug! Will definitely come back… And also, loved the duck feet on the walls. How cute is that :)

The Village, Duck feet to hang your coat, that's great!

On tuesday, food is 50% off, they go Mexican on Mondays, and there’s even a sort of library on the ground floor at the back, so Monsieur and I might head there to read after all :)
