What’s New Around The Beaches… The Hotel Bondi Refurbishment

Hotel Bondi has long held the reputation as the bar you head to after the Beach Road closes. It’s pretty much the only place in Bondi that’s allowed to serve booze after midnight. Given that things tend to get quite ‘interesting’ after the hour at which Cinderella’s stagecoach turns into a pumpkin, for most people […]

NEW CLOEY OWNERS KEEN TO DELIVER ‘QUALITY-FOCUSED COMMUNITY PUB’

The Clovelly Hotel is an iconic Eastern Beaches institution. Perched right next to the beach, it’s long been a place of rest and rejuvenation for hungry and thirsty locals.

TRIUMPHANT CHRISTMAS PRESENT APPEAL A HIT WITH THE KIDS

Having a kid sick in hospital is probably the hardest thing a parent can go through. It’s even harder when that time in hospital coincides with the holiday period – what kid wants to spend Christmas day in a hospital gown instead of their swimmers? Local hero (and previous Beast cover star) Mal ‘Wardy’ Ward […]

LOCAL GIRLS LOOK TO LIGHT UP BOWL-A-RAMA

Skateboarding has long been thought of as a man’s game. From all-boy avatar options on skating video games, to skater characters in movies being 99 per cent dudes, to the fact that ‘dangerous’ sports have historically been linked to aggressive masculinity, the message has been clear: skateboarding isn’t meant for girls.

Coogee Alcohol Ban Raises Local Discontent

For many years, Bondi Beach symbolised the ultimate backpacker Christmas destination. The rubbish would pile up; the rowdy behaviour would escalate. Eventually, Waverley Council decided to ban the consumption of alcohol at Bondi Beach. That ban remains in place today. So where would the backpackers flock to next? Enter Coogee Beach. With slightly lower rental […]

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE – A SUBJECT THAT RAISES PEARL’S HACKLES

One doesn’t normally associate the horrors of domestic violence with designer handbags and luxury personal care items. But designer handbags were definitely on Michaelia Cash’s mind last Christmas when the Minister for Women promoted an ‘initiative’ whereby Perth’s wealthy elite filled their passé Prada and Chanel handbags with items designed to make women in domestic […]

LOCAL BLOKES STRIP OFF THE CONSTRAINTS OF MACHO MASCULINITY

Be a man. Grow a pair. Boys don’t cry. The expectations surrounding masculinity both within Australia and the world are harmful not only to the women who are victims of male assault, but also to men who are expected to conform to stereotypes of violent masculinity, and to eschew their emotional and mental health.
