On the former site of Spawn Point on Clarence Street, you will find the latest project from the Old Mates Place crew: Ginny's Canoe Club. The pop-up venue has proven to be a hit with locals heading there for post-work drinks in the cool basement bar.

The menu is built around small plates, cocktails and wine. Chef Joey Astorgo (ex-Cho Cho San and Smalls Deli) has helped pull together the selection of delicious numbers, snacks and late-night eats. If you do arrive taco-ready, there are various flavours on offer — jerk mushroom and a fancy take on fish fingers. Accompanying the tacos are Sydney rock oysters with pineapple hot sauce, spanner crab sandwiches, pumpkin tostadas, potato and kimchi quesadillas, Albacore tuna with avocado and nori, and the house special Ginny's mini Cubano sandwich.

There's also an after-hours menu that's only available from 10pm — helping to combat Sydney's severe lack of late-night restaurants. Here you'll find highlights from the pre-10pm menu like the mini Cubano, tostadas and quesadillas alongside chips with dip and olives.

Ginny's accepts walk-ins but "strongly" recommends making a booking on their website.
