Bar Fly: Randwick Ritz

39/47 St Pauls Street, Randwick (02) 9399 5722
Sitting on an all but empty balcony looking down over The Spot on a Friday night, I’m wondering if the street level punters are missing the point. I’m upstairs at the spacious indoor-outdoor bar of the Ritz Cinema and grog is cheap. Inside the marble bar reflects the art deco design of the movie palace. On the balcony, we saddle benches, and we can smoke if we want to, and sip cocktails priced at just thirteen bucks each. Ritz cocktails have – as you might at least half-expect – movie titles as their inspiration: The Hitchcock, Captain Jack Sparrow, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory. There is a wine list of whites and reds. Before we meander into our film  – Boyhood – we settle instead for beers – five-buck Little Creatures. Ask for a plastic cup to take your booze into the movie.
