A new rooftop bar from a beloved Sydney brewer is set to open on Friday, October 22 in the inner west. Philter Brewing is drawing inspiration from 80s garden bars and Palm Springs with its new sun-soaked rooftop bar on top of its Marrickville brewery and taproom.

Since launching a no-fuss XPA four years ago, Philter has become a mainstay in Sydney bottle shops, pubs and bars. Now, the craft beer merchant is trying its hand at facilitating summer beers and cocktails by opening this new rooftop venue, Marrickville Springs.

The space is fitted out with pastel-hued tiles, white breeze blocks, a neon bin chicken and a mural from local artist Mielo. "The ibis was a given, nothing says Marrickville like a picnic pirate, but the palm trees shout out to the area, too," Philter Sales and Marketing Director Stef Constantoulas says.

"We wanted Marrickville Springs to have a totally different feel to our bar and restaurant downstairs, but it's still very Philter — it's all in the retro touches," Managing Director Mick Niel says.

On the rooftop you'll be able to sip Philter's range of beers both on tap and in tins, plus your choice from a reserved wine list and frozen cocktails. Enmore Road joint Jacoby's will be helping out by curating a selection of classic cocktails for the bar. While cracking a beer in the sun is the main attraction at Marrickville Springs, there will also be a selection of typical but tasty bar snacks including dinner party favourite prawn cocktails and tasting boards decked out with locally sourced cheese.

The bar will be open to walk-ins, but if you're heading out with a large group you can reserve a spot at the Philter Brewing website.

Marrickville Springs is located at 92–98 Sydenham Road, Marrickville. It will open on Friday, October 22.
