PUT TH­ESE BAR EX­PE­RI­ENCES ON YOUR LIST

Qantas - - Travel Insider -

Re­sem­bling a Ja­maican beach shack with cor­ru­gated-iron cladding and trop­i­cal mo­tifs, Jam­town (jam­town­manly beach.com) on Bel­grave Street em­bod­ies the beach­side vibe. The Smith ’n’ Wes­son cock­tail is a sweet-and-sour blend of pot­stilled rum, brown su­gar, lime and bit­ters. You’ll prob­a­bly or­der too many – they’re that good. Soak it all up with the sig­na­ture jerk chicken and co­conut rice and peas. Rum not your sack of su­gar? Head to Cured (cured­manly.com.au) on Mar­ket Lane for a glass of wine with a board of per­fectly tem­per­ate cut-to-or­der sa­lumi and cheeses. When af­ter­noon turns into evening – which hap­pens all too eas­ily here – as­cend the stairs of the Ho­tel Steyne (ho­tel­steyne.com.au) and check out rum-and-cider bar Moon­shine (open Thurs­day to Sun­day), which is decked out like the rus­tic in­te­rior of a ship. En­joy drink­ing from the range of 100 dif­fer­ent rums on the ex­pan­sive bal­cony over­look­ing the crash­ing waves of Manly Beach or dance away the evening to live mu­sic and DJs.
