Don't get too excited!

The Police Barracks might be doing business but there still a long way to go before some of the best stuff opens. Expect to find Coles (with lots of bargains), Fierra (one of my favs), Honey Birdette and the Palace Cinema open. There's also plenty of bargains at Woolworths Paddington as shoppers flock to try out the new Coles. Nothing like a bit of competition.

The cinema has stunning views over the city and there are some tables where you can enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine and gaze across the city. A new must I think, especially for visitors!

The cinemas are very nice but still waiting on some finishing touches, like wall paint! There are ladders handy for when they get around to that.

I heard that the green grocer and butcher who are located in the actual Police Barracks heritage listed building, won't open until Jan or Feb next year.
