It’s the fab lounge bar where Ahlan! Hot 100er Miss World Australia Jessica Kahawaty hangs out, as do our columnists Kris Fade and Big Rossi from Virgin Radio – ringing endorsements for District Lounge, which ticks all the boxes for a legendary night out. You’ve got to check out its newly-launched ladies’ night – Ladies Love District – on Thursdays (two classic cocktails and a selection of delish canapés are yours for the taking between 9pm and 11pm, with the best of 80s and 90s classics playing in the background). Want your fix of hip hop, reggae and dancehall? Be there on Friday night for ace urban tunes. Need to re-energise? Tuck into their awesome mini Wagyu beef burgers. Feel like getting some air? Head out to their 3,000-square-foot terrace (set to reopen next month, when the weather cools down) for some shisha. Then, come back in and get more of the bar that changes colour throughout the night. There’s always more to discover here.
