The Grounds has long been a must-visit Sydney staple. And just when you thought the team at one of Sydney’s finest café’s and roasteries couldn’t get more inventive, they decide to push the envelope that much further with The Grounds of South Eveleigh. Their sprawling new coffee roastery and event space already has us excited and it promises an experience like no other.
The Grounds of South Eveleigh
The new venue is the result of a 6-year collaboration between The Grounds and Mirvac and boasts of two very distinct spaces — an avant-garde, industrial coffee roastery — The Grounds Coffee Roastery along with a magical event space called The Eveleigh.
“We want to create something incredibly beautiful for the site and for Sydney – it’s not just a hospitality venue, it will be a space where time almost stands still,” Founder and Director of The Grounds, Ramzey Choker said of the new venue.
Celebrating the golden era of revolution that has become synonymous with The Locomotive Workshop, the The Grounds of South Eveleigh will create unique guest experiences at their opulent new space like something out of The Great Gatsby or American Hustle. It’s the perfect escape to the quintessential jazz-age, bang in the middle of the city.
What you can expect at The Grounds of South Eveleigh
Much like The Grounds of Alexandria and their outpost at CBD, you can expect some great coffee courtesy The Grounds Coffee Roastery. And we do mean some seriously great coffee.
Coffee enthusiasts can also learn about the whole coffee-making process from start to finish along with behind-the-scenes tours, coffee workshops and some fine freshly roasted coffee beans for sale. Some delectable brunch and lunch options will be available as well all as an ode to the golden era, in keeping with the theme.
Even better news — the wait is not that long, with The Grounds of South Eveleigh planning to open its doors very soon and you can even make booking enquiries right now. Keep your eyes peeled on their website to snap up a spot as soon as they open.
Excited to escape city life for a moment of pause at this timeless new space? We sure are!
