Spring Street Social and JAM Gallery

Bars, Drink, Eat, Restaurants, Sydney / 20 November 2013

Tucked away in the busy street of Bondi Junction is the New York style wine bar, Spring Street Social. A clandestine entrance is hidden behind busy shop fronts and Fitness First goers, marked only by a hanging old world, wooden sign. The underground stairwell opens up into a candle lit, antique social setting.
Inspired by the golden age of tinctures, tonics and homespun remedies this transformed bar/restaurant transports you far away from the usual bustle of Bondi Junction. The atmosphere inside Spring St Social is heightened by an occasional visit from the ‘The Gramophone Man” a bowler hat wearing character, playing vinyl records and smooth, bluesy tunes.

The well-crafted drinks menu is extensive and exotic. A number of craft brews and Australian and New Zealand wines are on offer. The cocktails list consists of high-quality and unique concoctions of niche spirits, gingers jellies, spices, herbs, infusions and teas, average price is around $18. The canapés on the opening night did not reflect the more refined dining experience at Spring Street. The menu consists of share-style plates, including pan roasted sea cod with sweet corn, prawn gribiche and seaweed and lobster macaroni bake with chorizo.
The perfect hideaway for an after hour elixir, Spring St Social is changing the scene of Bondi Junction to a more stylish and sleek social spot. It is also connected to the newly renovated Jam Gallery, a 400-person capacity venue for live music acts coming to Sydney.
On Friday the Jam Gallery was jam-packed hosting the album launch of Spiderbait, who were supported by the energetic 7-piece band, Little Bastards. The acoustics were sharp and the space, though large, felt intimate and dynamic. As a multi-purpose space, the Jam Gallery will be home to creative ventures in art, live music, performance and entertainment. Check out their website for info on upcoming acts.
