The Throsby bills itself as the smallest of Wollongong's small bars, but what it lacks in size it makes up for with heart. Situated in the heart of the city, the bright open space features timber detailing and has a fittingly coastal feel. When it comes to drinks, wine is the order of the day — The Throsby even hosts regular wine club meetings.

The venue has doubled its offering lately, teaming up with Ain't Nonna's who take over the kitchen Wednesday– Sunday. Ain't heard of Ain't Nonna's? It's the brainchild of the husband and wife team, Cassandra and Matthew Bugeja, alumni of the fine dining scene, including Becasse. The focus is on home-style Italian cooking with an emphasis on fresh pasta. The seasonal menu includes the likes of casarecce eggplant and shiitake mushroom ragu and caponata peppers.
