What's Up

A fun new joint has launched in the Mount just in time for those long summer nights. Palace Burger has been shuttered, and Palace Tavern has opened just around the corner in the former Sunny’s site on Banks Ave. “We’ve taken inspo from American bars and classic New Zealand taverns,” says Samuel King (pictured on right, with business partner Brad Dellar). You can play a game of pool, then slide in a booth and order from Palace’s much-loved burger menu that’s on offer until late. There’ll be DJs and a focus on great live bands.
