Having not been to Norwood in a while, we were excited to attend launch of up and coming bar a Stone’s Throw located on The Parade. On the cool autumn night it was, it was nice to walk into a quaint little bar with dimmed lighting and warm air.
The bar presents a quirky but cozy urban vibe that instantly makes you forget your troubles and enjoy a drink on a casual Wednesday night. Perhaps this is because of the cool blue-coloured walls or the super friendly bar tenders. The building stretches from bar to bistro with a dining area at the back and small garden area that would be perfect for cute date nights or a relaxed night out.
What is great about the bar’s menu is the range of options it offers from red and white wines, champagnes, gin and a selected list of cocktails. I decided to let the bartender surprise me with something fruity. He soon returned with a delicious tea-like cocktail with vodka, grapefruit, mint and a sphere of ice, which looked and tasted amazing.
The launch of Stone’s Throw was indeed a success, as it made us feel welcome and allowed us to enjoy the night easily with friends.
Location: 127 The Parade, Norwood
