Darlinghurst pub the East Village Sydney, will reopen next month following an extensive refurbishment that will see three level boasting unique offerings, including a 100 square metre rooftop terrace.
Situated on the corner of Palmer and Liverpool Streets, this four storey, 100 year old heritage site was given a makeover by designers Alexander and Co., who worked on Goodtime’s West Village in Petersham.
Sydney bartenders Lee Potter Cavanagh and Reece Griffiths will head up the venue as general manager and bar manager.
The kitchen will be headed up by Graham Johns (Quay, Welcome Hotel) under the direction of new Goodtime Hospitality executive group chef Tom Kime, whose most recent endeavour was Ceru in Potts Point, and prior to that was tossing pans at Annandale’s Fish & Co.
East Village Sydney’s three levels include:
- The Public Bar: This ground floor bar, referred to as a “Wine-pub”, will have an extensive selection of wines with a daily list of wines offered by the glass. This will be complemented by a food menu featuring ‘re-imagined counter meals’.
- The Athletic Club: A modern concept sports bar set in old world decor and inspired by private dens and cigar lounges. This space will be dedicated to all things sport. Guests can select drinks from the leather-bound beer and whisk(e)y lists, the old fashioned and boilermaker menus or one of the rare dark liquors.
- Terrace: This rooftop space will feature a mix of communal dining and high table, and a casual and summery menu. It will also include a semi-private dining room also captures that can seat up to 20 guests.
Purchased in April 2016, The East Village Sydney is Goodtime Hospitality Group’s second pub, with co-founders James Bodel and Locky Paech completing the extensive refurbishment of the West Village in Petersham late last year.
