Can alfresco bars ever go out of style? The answer is no and we’re not complaining. In case you were under the impression that Sydney is beginning to lose some of it’s mojo, you might want to reconsider. From omakase experiences to sparkling new rooftop bars, the hospitality industry remains strong and thriving. Adding to the mix is an ambitious venture from award-winning hospitality group, Tilley & Wills called Cabana Bar. Housing two bars, a semi private dining area and the big highlight — Sydney’s largest outdoor terrace, the swanky new bar provides a lush escape in the heart of the city.
Curated by Executive Chef Brad Sloane, menu highlights include reimagined yet classic bar mains, Spanish-inspired tipples and super creative cocktails. Their superpower? A mean cocktail and wine list and exotic seasonal treats.
Pair delicious cocktails like the Coco Cabana-Rita, a heady blend of coconut tequila and lime along with red-hot tacos or cool down with a classic piña colada and a succulent tequila cured salmon. Or why not grab some cheese boards and share plates with your mates along with a Cabana Tai’m — a house mai tai of pampero blanco rum, cointreau, lime, pineapple, orange and bitters.
The extensive menu offers all your favourite pub, restaurant and bar staples pairing them with Cabana Bar’s exotic cocktail collection and a rotating wine-list.
Given that the lush new venue is a multi-million dollar investment, you can be rest assured the attention to detail is one to reckon with.
The sprawling, stylishly-designed space by award-winning architecture firm Luchetti Krelle offers an overall top-tier experience. Expect luxe resort-style fit outs, aesthetically pleasing tones, calming sand-hued timber furnishings, dazzling city views and a patterned rattan ceiling for a clean, sophisticated finish.
The open-plan bar features an alfresco terrace with a mix of innovative indoor and outdoor spaces nestled in an elegant yet laidback design to get you buzzing.
So go forth and indulge your palette. True to their theme they operate on ‘Cabana time’ allowing you to sit back and soak up the city views or grab lunch on the go.
