While Asian, Mexican and Italian cuisine is always super popular among food connoisseurs in Sydney, recent years have seen the growing presence of more diverse cuisine. Diners can now tuck into everything from Middle Eastern food to omakase experiences right here at home. Adding to the list is Eros, a Greek Islands-inspired lounge bar, nestled in the heart of Sydney.
Eros, Potts Point
Taking over the former Bayswater Brasserie space on the landmark location of Bayswater Road, Eros is a Mykonos-style eatery and lounge bar boasting of earthy interiors, sweeping dance floors and dining rooms, authentic Greek street food and maximum beachside vibes.
Eros also promises a sparkling dining experience with brunch options, bottomless canapés and an extensive cocktail menu. Kick off your evening with light nibbles of halloumi sticks, a watermelon and ouza salad and fried olives. Heading there with your mates? Grab a seafood or meat platter to share or a whole pig or lamb spit roast. Other menu highlights range from fried squid and honey-dipped loukoumades to chargrilled halloumi.
And you can’t really party in Mykonos without a drink or two in hand. Live out all your Grecian fantasies with drinks like the Aphrodite — a Grey Goose vodka with rosewater, strawberries and rosemary or a passion fruit martini ideal for sun kissed afternoons. Also on the menu is the Apollo — a heady blend of Patron tequila, orange juice, triple sec and basil. Check out their menu here.
The Greek-heavy theme doesn’t just end with the food. With effective contrasts of bronze and white and sprawling whitewashed walls, the interiors are both fresh and modern evoking Greek island vibes throughout.
Eros bears a striking resemblance to Mykonos’ ever popular nightclub Scorpios and is primed to be a night-time party hotspot in it’s own right if you want to bust a move. Also on the cards is it’s own grotto-like backroom spinning Greek disco music for all the party vibes. It also comes with a 3am license which allows it to remain open late on Friday and Saturday night.
