Sydney is gearing up for another long, balmy summer, and the newly refurbished Manly Wharf precinct has joined the party, with two of its new second-storey venues opening this November, 2018.

Both are iterations of beloved Rockpool Dining Group eateries: a second outpost of Tex Mex hot-spot El Camino Cantina and a sixth iteration of Sake Restaurant and Bar.

El Camino has brought some definite party vibes to the Manly Wharf rooftop, with its giant cocktails, lively Tex-Mex fare and sprawling 365-seat dining space and terrace. At the big horseshoe-shaped bar, eight slushie machines signal fun times for the silly season (and beyond) — El Camino's famed margaritas come in a swag of flavours and multiple sizes, including a group-friendly two-litre tower. Other options include a host of beers from near and far, and a collection of over 100 mezcals and tequilas.

To match, the food lineup is equally vibrant. Think fiery buffalo wings, sizzling fajitas, plump burritos, soft shell tacos loaded with punchy flavour combinations and unlimited complimentary corn chips and salsas, It's all rounded out with rock 'n' roll jukebox tunes and a solid selection of daily specials, including $2 tacos on Tuesdays, 10-cent chicken wings on Wednesdays and a weekday happy hour (4-6pm) promising $7.50 drinks to suit every palate.
