Bennelong Is Opening a Summer Balcony Pop-Up Bar

Been dreaming about supping at Peter Gilmore’s Bennelong, but not managed to scrape the cash together quite yet? Well, there’s good news afoot. Come January 8, a bar will pop up on the restaurant’s private balcony. For three-and-a-bit summery weeks, you’ll be able to soak up those supreme Bridge-Quay views, without smashing a huge hole in your wallet. After all, you’ll surely want to save some of your hard-earned pennies for the cream of the Sydney Festival’s gig program.

To be known as Bennelong Balcony, the bar will open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from midday-late, until January 31. Topping the drinks menu is a selection of signature cocktails, which bar manager Aaron Gaulke has designed specifically for Sydney’s balmy evenings, like Whispers on the Breeze (Sauvignon Blanc, St Germain, soda, cucumber, lemon peel). There’ll also be Piper Heidsieck Champagne and Endeavour Pale Ale. And, should you grow a little peckish, the bar menu will sort you out.

Chef Peter Gilmore (Quay) has been running at the show at Bennelong since the middle of this year. He replaced the degustation menu with a few casual, yet no less outrageously delicious, options: from three course dining in The Restaurant dining, to share ‘Cured and Cultured’ plates, to supper. And they just nabbed Concrete Playground's Best New Restaurant in our Best of 2015 awards, so pay 'em a visit.

The Bennelong Balcony opens January 8 and will be open until January 31. Open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from noon.
