The team behind Sydney small bar Bulletin Place has leased a retail premises on Bourke Street, Surry Hills, opening Dead Ringer last week.
Located at 413 Bourke Street, the 1800s heritage listed double street frontage terrace has been leased from Greencliff and is opposite the Beresford Hotel.
The team at Bulletin Place includes Adi Ruiz, Robb Sloane and Tim Phillips, who in 2012 was crowned Diageo Reserve World Class Bartender of the Year.
“Tim Philips and his team are savvy, young operators who have their finger on the pulse and know exactly what Sydney’s discerning bar scene desires. Having invested in the Bourke Street premises some years ago, Greencliff is very excited to have secured world class operators to bring their vision to the space. We are very supportive of young talent and wish the boys every success in their Surry Hills venture,” said Greencliff executive director, Marcus Chang.
Dead Ringer is the team’s first foray into food with the new venue offering both substantial dining and drinking options.
“We’re really excited to be opening Bulletin Place’s sister venue, Dead Ringer, at 413 Bourke Street. The unique character of Greencliff’s beautiful heritage cottage terrace felt like the perfect setting for the new venue,” Philips said.
Dead Ringer has secured chef Tristan Rosier, formerly of Est. and Farmhouse Kings Cross to create a seasonal menu that complements the ever-changing cocktail menu on offer.
