The Greens North Sydney is a neighbourhood eatery, bar, café, garden and bowling green with spectacular views of Sydney Harbour. Previously lovingly known as the North Sydney Bowlo the bowling greens are still there and in use. And, yes, you can still join as a member and bowl to your heart’s content.
The Greens North Sydney has transformed the majority of the existing clubhouse and one of two bowling greens to take full advantage of the harbour views and create a hub for the whole family. Huge vintage photographs bring character to the interior, and an enormous, rustic garden invites relaxation with recycled brick and mismatched tables. And if it’s a nice day outside, it’s just very possibly one of the nicest spots in North Sydney for cheeky cocktail, best enjoyed out by the greens while the sea breeze from Neutral Bay wafts up the hill.
The Greens welcomes kids and aims to make sure they are kept happy and well fed with plenty of healthy options. There’s an onsite vegetable garden, take-home chutneys, a cafe component with Double Roasters coffee, a produce-driven menu, and a 110-seat courtyard. And if it is all sounding eerily similar to The Grounds of Alexandria, that’s because it is. The kitchen is run by husband-and-wife Lilly and Nathan Fasan who both spent two and a half years at The Grounds before heading to the north side.
If you are planning a visit to The Greens North Sydney, a game of social bowls can be easily organised on the day. Adults of all ages can play and it’s children friendly.
$20 per adult and $10 per child* includes all equipment, rinks for a duration of 2 hours and briefing on how to bowl to get you started.
Simply see the reception team upon arrival or at any time during your visit!
* Children pricing only for kids 12 years and under
There is limited parking onsite so the management recommends catching public transport if possible.
Otherwise if you do have to drive, there is some paid street parking available and you can just walk up to the Club.
There is a baby change table located in the disabled toilet near the entry.
The large restaurant area makes it a real winner for families and for meeting up with groups of family and friends. In fact, it’s a really popular place for Mother’s Groups to go, especially earlier in the week, with lots of space from pram parking.
