Breakfast by day and bubbles by night at new champagne bar Blockhouse Eat + Drink

The effervescent tingle of champagne hitting your lips is usually the first sign of a pretty wonderful time. Unfortunately for us in the faraway land of Australia, by the time champagne hits our shores it can become a little too pricey to drink for every celebration. As a lover of the bubbly elixir, restaurateur Jerome Dalton believes that it's time champagne was something to be enjoyed here on the regular – not just for special occasions. more

In a previous life, the site was the home of Queensland Brewery Ltd, and later Dalgety & Co. Ltd – the first pastoral company to move into Teneriffe. So it seems only fitting that its latest inhabitant is focused on two key things – great beer and great food. more
