For eating out
Johnny Fontaines authentic 1950’s American diner is a kitsch place to chow down on a quality burger in quaint surroundings with red and white gingham checked table clothes, perky waiters and waitresses and a host of memorabilia. Whatever you do, don’t even think about leaving this place without trying one of their milkshakes – a simply divine concoction in a glass.
A great comedy venue is the HiFi Club, which holds regular Saturday night comedy sessions. There are usually three comedians on each night and is usually packed out, although seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Leave your reservations at the door and expect to be heckled if you are anywhere near the front. A great venue to enjoy a good laugh with – or at – friends and a good drink or two.
