Monopole has good food, good wine, and good service at its helm. From the team that brought us Bentley Restaurant and Bar, this CBD venue personifies contemporary design, expert tipples, and food that rates among the best in Sydney. Amen to that.

Chef Brent Savage and sommelier Nick Hildebrandt opened Monopole in Potts Point where it stood as a neighbourhood institution for eight years. In late 2020, they moved to the heart of the city on Curtin Place, creating the perfect after-work spot for premium wine and elevated snacks.

Hildebrandt's impressive wine list offers 500+ bottles including a range of organic and biodynamic options but focused on French and Australian drops. The food at Monopole is similar, Savage takes from French bistronomy movement and adapts it to the modern Australian diner. Think chicken liver parfait with bursts of ruby grapefruit, soft herbs and sourdough. Or, fresh orecchiette with yellow squash and black olives perfectly balanced with creamy ricotta.

Monopole's space is sleek and contemporary with warm lanterns and pops of red that emulate a trendy Scandi-style spot. Woody accents and open windows give it a laidback feel making it the perfect spot to unwind after you're 9-5.
