PLANS for a cafe with a rooftop bar have been revealed for Bulli’s old chemist shop, just north of the PCYC, paving the way for the heritage listed shopping centre to become the north’s latest eating and craft beer destination.
Thomas Bailey along with building designer Alex Urena have lodged plans with Wollongong City Council for Bulli’s latest small bar venue that will serve coffee, craft beer and cocktails. The rooftop terrace will offer views of the Illawarra escarpment.
The Bailey family-owned building at 251 Princes Highway is heritage listed and is vacant. It was recently a gym, and before that a chemist.
Mr Bailey is one half of the popular Yarnsy’s Cafe in Tarrawanna. The plan follows another project, currently underway, to restore the old Railway Guest House as a small bar and eatery. Recently another small and cafe was opened in the heritage listed Stockbank building on the corner of Park Road and the Princes Highway.
The development application for the old chemist is on public exhibition until April 24.
