Merry Kristin! On the 12th Day of Christmas, Sydney gave to me…Madame Fling Flong in Newtown

Posted on December 13, 2009 in the Kristin's Kristmas category

Christmas is here again and I’m picking up my posts almost to the day I dropped them off last year – meant to be?? I think so. (Well, actually – it was a little encouragement from my friend, Andrew Blanda – thanks Andrew!)

If you recall (or maybe you don’t since I only had 1 reader last year and now I have 3), I decided to share my love and appreciation for Sydney. It’s been a totally incredible year, and if I was smitten a year ago, let’s just say it’s full-blown love into infinity now.

So each day I reveal to my 3 readers more of the magic we are experiencing here.

It may not be a surprise that I love beautiful places and drinking champagne. When I can enjoy bubbly in a pretty place it’s KISMET! I have 2 such places that have caught my fancy in Sydney...Madame Fling Flong in Newtown and The Winery in Surry Hills (see Day 13 post).

Since it’s the weekend, I’m breaking this post up into 2 days so you can doubly enjoy my mouth-watering girlie girl pictures and giggle like I do when I look at them…

Madame Fling Flong’s in Newtown is the absolute cocktail lounge.

I was completely under it’s spell from the first minute and couldn’t wait to order my Manhattan (I strayer here a little but the place has retro cocktails and one must partake, yes?) and try out every delectable and utterly fantastic vintage chair until I found the one that screamed “Kristin” above all others.

I did.

Here’s the amazing bar – if I was still bartending, this is the first place I’d apply:

Needless to say, this is the first stop to heaven. We almost moved to Newtown so I could be close to Madame’s. Really. Wouldn’t you?

Come back tomorrow, when I share with you the horrendously feminine and soul-touching beauty of The Winery in Surry Hills…same Sweet & Sassy time…same Sweet & Sassy channel.

    Kristin, you know it was meant to be to kick-start this project again *grin*

    A lot can happen in 12 months (or less) and I am happy for you that you’ve found the reason to continue this journey. I look forward to the next posts!

    Newtown rocks doesn’t it – and Madame Fling Flongs is only 3 minutes walk to my favourite Newtown place – Gelatomassi.
    See Google Map: http://is.gd/5lJ8i

    Hope to see you at coffee mornings if not before!

    Cheers
    Tony
