British Colonial Co.
They're doing everything from brekkie to tapas to post-film nightcaps.
Think Oxford Street is the only place to eat in Bulimba and Hawthorne? Think again. In fact, the road that shares its name with the latter suburb is doing its best to tempt hungry diners away from the inner east's main drag, with newcomer British Colonial Co. its latest weapon.
An alfresco dining and lounge bar inspired by the British Empire during the era of colonisation, British Colonial Co. aims to offer Hawthorne residents the tapas restaurant and laidback drinks spot they probably didn't know they needed. The entire establishment will endeavour to cultivate a global mindset within a local eatery — though it may have to tread carefully. Plenty of places take their cues from history, but Britain's colonisation efforts aren't something that everyone wants to celebrate.
However, if you're a fan of grabbing a share plate, a cocktail and or a glass of wine before or after seeing a movie in style, you'll find British Colonial Co. in the perfect location. Cineplex's Hawthorne Deluxe complex isn't the only reason to head to 274 Hawthorne Road — or at least, it won't be soon. And yes, that applies to anyone getting their movie fix early in the day, with brekkie and brunch definitely on the menu.
