Pumphouse Sydney has come a long way since its early days. Back in 1891, the only beverage being poured was drinking water for the young colonial city of Sydney. It was the first hydraulic pumping station in NSW until it was decommissioned, and the Heritage Council made it the Pumphouse Tavern. Now it's Pumphouse Bar and Restaurant, and it's opening its latest addition: a garden terrace.

On Saturday, November 18, the Terrace is partnering with First Creek Wines and Chandon to welcome guests to a launch party for three hours of libations and celebrations in this leafy new location. There'll be live music, canapés and free-flowing drinks on offer from 1–4pm. The common theme? The Terrace focuses on native plants, flavours and ingredients from its decoration down to the menu.

Speaking of the menu, it stars the likes of pecorino croquettes with soubise, onion molasses, and candied macadamia; Greek saganaki with kefalograviera, spiced honey, and lavender; whole spatchcock with miso butter, charred radicchio, candied macadamia, and confit shallots and slow cooked beef cheeks with confit garlic mash, porcini butter, and salsa verde.

A quick tip: if you book your tickets online for a reservation at the Terrace between Sunday, November 19 and Christmas Eve (six people max) — quote the code TERRACE to get a complimentary glass of Chandon Garden Spritz on arrival. Thank us later.

The Terrace Garden Launch Party will take place on Saturday, November 18 from 1–4pm. Tickets are $99 pp. For information or to book your tickets, visit the website.
