Croydon Lane Wine and Tapas Bar
Enjoy live music in the sunny wine garden at this hidden gem.
If you're looking for romance in Cronulla, take your date to Croydon Lane Wine and Tapas Bar. Tucked away in a 'secret' location in Cronulla's backstreets, this venue exudes atmosphere even before you get there. Once you've settled down — either in the fairy light-lit courtyard or the dark and moody dining room — select from a menu of tapas dishes, which covers off all the Spanish classics, including patatas bravas, jamon croquetas and paella balls.
The wine list is extensive, focusing on Australian drops but with a respectable Spanish representation, too. Cocktail-wise, the Thai gin martini, which mixes Archie Rose gin with ginger liqueur, cucumber, lemongrass, ginger, lime and chilli, is a winner. Or if you like heavier flavours, try the Smoky Pedro, a combination of Pampero Anejo Especial rum, Talisker 10 Single Malt, Pedro Ximenez and chocolate bitters.
