COOL PLACES TO PLAY ACROSS THE GLOBE

Splitting her time jetting between NYC and Sydney, gorgeous former Australian gymnast Nadia Fairfax has created a beautiful digital empire: The Fairfax Journal. Sharing for the first time where she loves to party, below is a full list of the city hotspots she frequents most often. As the beautiful Australian blonde confesses: "When I say “play," I simply mean "having a delightfully awesome time. Typically, I don't go to outrageously annoying nightclubs! I have fun in great restaurants, low key saloons, rocking hotel lobbies or their seaside set bars.” Exclusively for The Chosen Club, here’s Nadia’s hit list... "Just add good friends,” she smiles.

1 SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: HOTEL CENTENNIAL

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: HOTEL CENTENNIAL

I love this venue so much! I have been coming here ever since I was a little girl. My parents even share fond memories of "playing" here back in their hey-day. It can seem so cozy in winter, yet so bright and airy during the Australian summer. Fabulous for a hearty lunch, yet also great for a quick spritz. There is something special for all at Hotel Centennial.

3 BODRUM, TURKEY: MACA KIZI

BODRUM, TURKEY: MACA KIZI

I lived here in 2012 for 6 months. I just couldn't leave. Not only is the hotel divine, the beach club is mesmerising. Set on crystal blue waters, this venue is the perfect combo between total relaxation and a little "party party"... Open only during the summer, this is THE place to be in all of Turkey.

BALI, INDONESIA: DA MARIA

Da Maria comes from the brainchild of Sydney's Iconic Icerbergs dining room: Maurice Terzini. Simple Italian food, delectable cocktails, mixed with music! It's so on point it would make ibiza jealous.

MIAMI, UNITED STATES: MRS MANDOLINIS @ SOHO HOUSE

The sister of Mandolin Aegean bistro, which is located in miami's design district (and also AHHH-mazing!) this little gem is located in a little courtyard behind the pool at SOHO house, it is small, but the atmosphere is big. Think of a rustic, Greek taverna on South Beach! WIN.

6 HAVANA, CUBA: LA GUARDIA

HAVANA, CUBA: LA GUARDIA

I recently visited Cuba and this was most certainly the highlight. A rooftop restaurant with an exceptional view of Havana- no words, or photos can do this place justice. Just go. Even the stairway entrance is mind blowing.

7 LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM: LOULOU'S @ 5 HERTFORD

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM: LOULOU'S @ 5 HERTFORD

Loulou's is the underground bar at 5 Hertford. Sadly, 5 Hertford is a members-only club, but make a few calls! No doubt one of your local Londoner's is surely a member and will kindly take you as their guest.

8 LOS ANGELES, UNITED STATES: LADY DELILAHLA

LOS ANGELES, UNITED STATES: LADY DELILAHLA

Perfect for dinner, drinks and dancing - in that order. You are transported back to the roaring 20's when you enter. If you’re lucky, you might even catch a fabulously chic burlesque show.

9 MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA: GOOD HEAVENS

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA: GOOD HEAVENS

Melbourne is the only city in Australia that nails rooftop bars and with a mixologist that keeps the cocktails on a global scale. Good Heavens is a place not to be missed while in Melbourne... Great for a little boogie too!
