West end is nice for a meal or a few drinks.. It's not as great as it was in the past, but it's an accessible location and a few of the venues are as good as you'll find around town. You'll find a few good bars, live music venues, restaurants and cafes and takeaway food.

Live and work in West End and eat out here every day. Whether it be a grilled pork roll or top of the range steak meal with a selection of bars to relax, this place has everything.
