At the reported place of the Labor party's birth, Balmain has been given a new bar: The Workers. To celebrate the opening, guests were treated to delicious tacos, stuffed jalapenos, cocktails, Bob Hawke himself and the stylings of The Whitlams - well, two thirds of them anyway. The bar, though intimate on first glance, has tucked in an outdoor area and some rooms out the back, all accompanied by a first class menu. A new destination for Sydneysiders? You bet.
