Brogue’s, the popular Irish bar in Lake Worth on Lake Avenue, is now an Australian-themed bar, courtesy new owners, Emily, Rob and Tania Regan. Emily and Rob are “kiwis” – New Zealanders – who migrated to Australia where they reared Tania, before moving to the U.S. The Regans are former owners of a delis in Australia, and most recently, the Bees Knees gift shop in Lake Worth.
Brogue’s Down Under, and the back room – the Aussie Boomerang Bar – changed hands last month and is already drawing crowds.
They’re change the food first. “We’re going to have nice food like different salads, good fish dishes, quiche, and Australian and New Zealand wines,” Emily said prior to the opening.
As for traditional foods, they’ll be there, too. “Bacon and egg sandwiches, sausage rolls, chicken pie – that sort of thing. We won’t have Vegemite sandwiches till Christmas though. Our grandson is bringing it (Vegemite) over from Australia then.”
They have live music at the Aussie Boomerang Bar. “I don’t know if we can find someone to blow the didgeridoo, but I’m going to try. If you know of anyone who plays the didgeridoo, let me know!” she said.
Other changes in the restaurant are planned, but over time, she said.
