Event Recap: Party with Papi at Papi Chulo - Manly (Sydney)

Celebrating just being an awesome venue, Manly Wharf restaurant and bar Papi Chulo threw a mid-week bash, brightening our mid-winter spirits. A mix of locals and city-siders packed out the stylish watering hole enjoying the live music, unique South American via Caribbean decor and fantastic water views. From the scattered candles, warm wooden interior and flower-draped windows opening on to the water Chulo has lifted the game; impressive in the beachside suburb where quality bars and eateries continue to take off.

Boilerhouse Restaurant at Manly's historical Q Station isn't exactly a restaurant one would stumble upon on a walk up a busy street lined with competing eateries.
