Winghaus Is Sydney's CBD's Soon-to-Open American-Style Diner Dedicated to Wings and Beer

The bar will have 40 beers — and negronis and margaritas — on-tap, and the kitchen will serve wings in lots of ten, 15, 20, 50 or 100.

After opening several colourful Mexican cantinas around the city last year, Rockpool Dining Group continues to expand its Sydney footprint — this time, with a European and American-inspired joint that specialises in wings.

Opening in Circular Quay's Gateway Centre in late January, Winghaüs by Bavarian will have room for 145 people across a range of high-tops table, benches, bar stools and leather booths. It's the second Bavarian offshoot of its type to open in the country, with the inaugural Brisbane outpost launching last September.

Chicken is the main culinary attraction — buffalo wings specifically — although you'll also be able to tuck into fried wings dusted in either chipotle or habanero powder, or opt for boneless chicken tenders. They'll all be available in servings of ten, 15, 20, 50 or 100 pieces, with eight hot sauces on offer — ranging from mild Texas barbecue to super-hot habanero — and five dips.

For folks hankering for other US diner-style bites, chicken burgers, sides such as onion rings, potato gems and deep-fried pickles, plus New York-style cheesecake will all be available. And if you like your desserts both sweet and warm, a selection of deep-fried chocolate bars are likely to prove a highlight, with hot, gooey Mars, Snickers and Picnics all on offer.

While the menu skews American, European influences will come through in the drinks and decor. Like The Bavarian, Winghaüs will feature a stein chandelier made from 500 one-litre glasses, and will serve German brews such as LöwenbräuPaulaner, Franziskaner, Spaten and Hofbräu. US tipples like Budweiser, Stella Artois and Goose Island will also feature, plus Aussie beers like Pines and Pirate Life. And, cocktail-wise, the bar's taps will pump out margaritas, old fashioneds, spritzes, negronis sand espresso martinis.

Sydneysiders can also expect plenty to keep them entertained at the diner-style spot, whether you're settling in at the long bar or getting cosy in a leather booth beneath neon signs. Given that sports memorabilia will line the walls, it should come as no surprise that big-screen TVs will play up to 20 live sports attempts at a time.

Find Winghaüs by Bavarian at Gateway Centre, Alfred Street, Circular Quay from late January — we'll update you with an opening date when we have one.
