Newcastle is developing its reputation as being a major hub (out of Sydney) for emerging art and culture. Along with that, the bar scene is slowly transforming from loud mega-pubs to small, dark, intimate spots, slightly off the beaten path and all done with style and pizzaz. Bar Petite is a new establishment close to Newcastle beach, housing a mix of French colonial touches, a polished timber bar and a modern Australian menu. The atmosphere is relaxed, the meals a mix of tasty snacks and larger mains, and the wine menu draws on the best of local Hunter Valley drops. I ate there a few weeks back and was particularly impressed by the cosmopolitan decor and the pleasantly adventurous flavouring of the foods.
