After almost a decade in the former Summer Hill Post Office building, One Penny Red is closing its doors before the building is put on the market in early 2024.

Since opening in 2014, the hatted restaurant has been a pioneer in the Sydney dining scene, serving modern Australian classics helmed by head chef RJ Lines and a bold wine list curated by David Murphy.

"We are excited to go out at the top of our game with an amazing team," says co-founder Nina Alidenes. "The past ten years have been an incredible ride and we have achieved more than we could have imagined. Thank you for supporting us, celebrating your special occasions with us, and allowing us to be part of your memories."

The restaurant and upstairs Vernon's Bar will close on Sunday, December 31. Until then, there won't be any changes to bookings and dining vouchers can still be redeemed.

Book in before it closes for good at the One Penny Red website.
