Located in Walker Street, North Sydney, 'The Firehouse Hotel' is an ingenious reuse of an old building. This is happening the world over as more heritage orders are slapped onto buildings in central areas.
The internals here were gutted - including the internal 'pole', which is a shame. But it is a lovely place for a drink with an upstairs deck out the back. My lamb rissotto was delicious as was my $9 glass of Shiraz from the Clare Valley.
