Untied: Barangaroo’s first rooftop bar comes from the same team behind The Norfolk (Sydney)

Modern Australian influences drip all over Barangaroo’s new rooftop bar, which is now open and comes to us from Dixon Hospitality, the fine folk behind institutions like The Norfolk and Forresters. Dubbed Untied, the breezy indoor-outdoor addition to the flash precinct is a light-hearted look at Australiana through the lens of Queensland’s tropical rainforests, meaning that guests are greeted with lush greenery pairing with the bar’s external green stairwell, and sleek, vivid colourful furniture spread through the 260-capacity space....

Ume Burger opens on Barangaroo’s Wulugul Walk (Sydney)

If you to too have felt the pains and pangs of arriving to Kerby Craig’s wildly popular burger pop ups, which he began two years ago, only to hear the dreaded phrase “sold out” over and over again then you’d understand how long many have waited for the fine-dining chef to turn to burgers in a permanent capacity. Finally Craig and chef Regina Jose have ensured that no longer will we have to miss out on these uniquely Japanese style burgers. First Craig opened Bar Ume in Surry Hills a few months ago, and now the duo have given Barangaroo it’s first burger-centric opening with Ume Burger – trust the shiny new precinct to aim high with their obligatory burger joint....

Review: Bel & Brio – Barangaroo (Sydney)

Now that The Streets of Barangaroo are beginning to take shape, the timing is right for the immense harbourside precinct to get its very own European style emporium. That would be Bel & Brio, a 5-in-1 venue which is now open in one of the area’s premier sites, offering a multitude of experiences, blending high quality farm-to-table dining and a comprehensive wine bar with takeaway, coffee and retail. By design, there are plenty of ways to approach the 800 square metre site, which has been fitted out by the exceedingly talented DS17 (Alpha, Lotus the Galeries) so that the brass-driven rose gold glow of the bar is almost impossible to ignore when walking around the area....

Review: Lotus Barangaroo (Sydney)

Lotus is the latest restaurant addition to the flourishing dining destination of the harbourside Wulugul Walk at Barangaroo, a third Sydney restaurant for the brand following their original dumpling bar in Walsh Bay and their massive restaurant at The Galeries. Head chef Chris Yan (Lotus Galeries, ex-Billy Kwong and China Doll) takes on native Australian ingredients in a modern Chinese menu, a dining experience illustrated by those fantastic harbour views and a light, bright fit-out....

Lotus brings dumplings and modern Chinese to Barangaroo (Sydney)

After a successful expansion to The Galeries last year Lotus have now opened up their third Sydney venue, as Barangaroo’s obligatory dumpling and modern Chinese restaurant, a massive 160-seater designed by the ever-reliable DS17. Bringing over their excellent menu and adding a few new additions (expect more seafood) to help settle into the new waterfront precinct, Lotus Barangaroo has slotted in as another piece of the rapidly evolving Wulugul Walk. It’s a big step for the brand, but seems like the right move after The Galeries – still the largest of their three venues – furthered their imprint on Sydney’s incredibly busy dumpling scene....

Review: Anason – Barangaroo (Sydney)

Good Turkish cuisine is few and far apart in Sydney, so it came as a surprise when the very first permanent restaurant at the much-discussed Barangaroo development was announced to bring a contemporary take on share-style Ottoman dining to the ongoing precinct. A few months ago, Anason opened to huge expectations, seeing as highly regarded Chef Somer Sivrioglu (Efendy Restaurant) was leading the kitchen. So far, reviews have been glowing, and the youthful and bright homage to traditional Turkish tavernas has been swarming with diners from all over the city, offering an exciting menu along with Istanbul inspired cocktails and a carefully curated wine list that’s full of local and imported Turkish wines....

The Streets of Barangaroo plan final days of Wulugul Pop Up (Sydney)

Since it began last year, temporary precinct Wulugul Pop Up along The Streets of Barangaroo has been a regular go-to spot for hungry, thirsty Sydneysiders craving the likes of Belle’s Hot Chicken, Gin & It, and Chaco Bar in an open-air harbourside experience. The end of July sadly brings the close of this pop-up, as it moves to make way for a permanent line-up of world class restaurants – which so far includes the excellent Anason – and seeing as the series of eateries and bars has met massive success over the past few months, the organisers are planning a little farewell festival to see the residency off with style....

Next weekend, on Sunday to be exact, the stunning Wulugul Walk by the water at Barangaroo will be the location for an unprecedented burger war dubbed “Burger Kings”, pitting six of Sydney’s best against each other to be judged by a panel made of ravenous Sydneysiders, including you – yes, you.
