Whilst living in a regional town certainly has it benefits – no traffic jams, friendly locals, strong sense of community, quite beaches, no queue at the bar! It does also have its downfalls particularly for us females and that is getting dressed up for dinner.
Dressing to impress for dinner is simply not a common occurrence in the Whitsundays. Our laid back, tropical holiday lifestyle lends itself to swimwear, shorts and thongs, not stylish outfits with killer heels. That is where the dress code at Hemingway’s plays to our advantage, not only does it give us an excuse to get frocked up, but it also encourages the men in our life to do the same!
Our dress code is outlined below:
Smart casual attire – Management reserves the right to not permit sportswear, beachwear, activewear, swimwear
If you are a visitor to the region and have only brought your holiday casual wear with you, then we have some highly recommended boutiques in Airlie Beach where you will find the perfect outfit for your Hemingway’s experience.
