With so many different eateries popping up with similar offerings to each other, it might be hard not to feel a little bit same-same when trying to decide where to dine and what to eat. But when it comes to Southside Social, there’s no such thing as same-same. An experimental dining space, Southside Social’s food and drink menus are constantly changing to adapt to the seasons and to keep things interesting and delicious. In addition to this, they’re always looking at innovative ways to use the space for fun pop-up events such as degustation dinners, cocktail parties and musical performances. The space is also available to hire for private events.

And speaking of the space – this is pretty unique, too. Once a cooking school, Southside Social has been transformed by owners Nikki Collins and Toby Eaton into a slick and stylish venue with an impressive open kitchen and plenty of seating options to suit your dining desires whether you’re after a quick coffee (Unknown Chapter, so guaranteed to be good), a tasty lunch, a creative cocktail (they’ve got them on tap!) or a beautiful meal with a glass of wine.

There are bound to be some very exciting things happening in this Sydenham spot so make sure you keep an eye on their social media to see what future fun is planned at Southside Social.
