Power. Sex. Gender. Class.

Journalist Bri Lee has never been afraid to grapple with the big issues. First, in her scorching 2018 memoir Eggshell Skull, which detailed her very personal reckoning with the criminal justice system. And now in her exhilarating first foray into fiction, 2024’s The Work. When New York gallerist Lally meets Sydney antiques dealer Pat, it’s a case of opposites attract. Can they manage an ocean between them and the tangled threads of their own career aspirations? This pacy page-turner dissects the throbbing heart of capitalism, greed, lust and will leave you gasping for air.

Gather your crew and join us at this achingly cool retro theatre-turn-bar for Chatting Books with Bri Lee. A book chat serving up plenty of spice!

“A smart, sexy page-turner.” – Madeleine Gray

The Savoy

The Savoy first swung it’s doors open in 1956 as the Coast’s first and only CinemaScope screen. It was a post World War 2 entertainment complex. The Savoy was closed as a cinema in 1976 with mixed use since then on the ground floor with the mezzanine and projection room laying disused and dormant for 40 years. Until now. Rising out of the ashes from its glory days, The Savoy has been reborn into a multi-purpose bar and restaurant venue.
