A stroll down Victoria Street in Potts Point will lead you to The Butler — a cheery restaurant and bar done up in bright pink and tangerine hues. In the spirit of the season, it has substituted its regular menu for a springtime special complete with limited-edition desserts and fresh cocktails with spring and sustainability in mind. Their lovely floral mural features the work of Sydney-based urban street artist Sarah McCloskey and includes native blooms, botanicals, and seasonal produce.
The Butler, Potts Point
The Butler, like the rest of Sydney, is celebrating warm days and blooming flowers in its own unique way. Their leafy open patio terrace makes for an ideal spot for a laze in the sun with a cocktail in hand and a sublime dessert along with it. The cocktail menu is all about classics as well as fresh concoctions and comes with a sustainable twist. Joining hands with Cam Freno, manager of recently opened Rafi, bar manager Jacob Greenhill will be slinging a cocktail menu that aims to give another life to produce otherwise destined for the bin.
Expect the Lil Davo cocktail featuring Davo plum, Lillet rosé, Los Siete misterios, orange and ginger and Sticky Beesness which is a concoction of beefeater gin, prosecco, honey pineapple syrup and pineapple juice. There’s also the Smokey Plum Sour with Los Siete Mezcal, Davo plum, blood orange syrup, lemon and aquafaba.
As for dessert, expect a Coconut Piloncillo Parfait made with hibiscus and lemon myrtle sorbet that is both flavoursome and sustainable. Get your hands on this special for the month of November and don’t forget to capture a picture-perfect spring selfie in front of the floral mural. Read more about The Butler in Bloom here.
