A taste of inner west Sydney

Have you seen the movie Priscilla Queen of the Desert? If not, I suggest that you do as it is an Aussie cinema classic made on a shoestring budget. If you have seen the film, the Sydney drag shows are shot in the front bar of The Imperial Hotel, Erskineville. Up until 2009 we lived a short stumble from the pub, spending many a happy hour with friends in the bars, show room and the basement nightclub.

Heading east along Erskineville Road you will pass The Floral Decorator on the left hand side, one of our favourite florists. The interior has a cave like feeling with flowers arching overhead. I like the way the window display appears to tumble onto the pavement.

A little piece of France
Proceeding further on into Alexandria the road becomes Copeland Street. Bitton is a frequent destination of ours. You can see the back of Frenchman, David Bitton wearing a blue polo shirt on the left of the picture. Great food with a French edge.
