The HISTORY of SOFIE'S
Before the re-
development of 386 Darling Street, BALMAIN
Sofie's opened for the first time downstairs in 1977.
At that time, Dawn Fraser owned and ran the local Riverview Hotel.
The Balmain Bijou Theatre hosted the "Rocky Horror Show" starring Reg Livermore.
Customers would indulge in pre-dinner drinks at Dawn's Riverview Hotel,
dinner at Sofie's, followed by a viewing of the Rocky Horror Show at the Bijou
and back to Sofie's for dessert coffee and a port to complete the perfect night out.
More than a few years later, in January 2010 Sofie & husband Peter, re-opened UPSTAIRS
