Bungalow 8 – Sydney’s waterfront dining, drinking and dancing destination – reopens on 2 November with fresh new interiors, entertainment, and food and drink.
On wharf level, it’s all about the relaxed vibe of a beachside villa, perfect for those in pursuit of the sun and European inspired lunches. Geometric shapes and tiles in shades of pastels, blues and whites convey airy, seaside vibes. The outdoor space is the perfect backdrop for a long, lazy meal with a view, rosé drinking with colleagues or celebrations with loved ones. Head upstairs to The Loft, where the luxe, rich plum, greys and timber set the scene for an evening of dancing to some of Sydney’s best DJs.
The food menu is by executive chef Justin Wise and features modern Australian beach club classics, including seasonal salads and fresh seafood alongside a cheeky schnitzel and burger. For those who like to share, there’s also bigger platters: the seafood plate for two is a highlight and includes mud crab, scallops, oysters, prawns, cured salmon, bugs and squid.
“We’re bringing Bungalow 8 back to life!” says Wise. “We’ve created a menu and a space where you can easily imagine yourself in Tahiti or Bora Bora. There’s fresh salads with exotic fruits for a light bite or you can go all out and order the seafood platter or braised pork hock to share.”
The drinks include a range of local and international wines, boutique beers and jugs of summer-inspired cocktails. A pitcher of Sloe Down Charlie is created with sloe gin, apricot brandy, fresh pressed watermelon juice, lime, mint and soda. Get all nostalgic with a Great Grape Cooler – grape Kool Aid with green apple Smirnoff, shiraz, lemon, berries and lemonade. These fruity and fresh options are just what a long, lazy afternoon by the water needs.
When you’re ready to bust some dance moves, head upstairs to The Loft for more cocktails made with fresh juices and housemade syrups. If cocktails aren’t your thing, there’s magnums of bubbles which are a sure fire way to get the party started.
This crowd-pleasing harbourside destination will have you there for lunch and staying all night for dancing. Whether you’re after a long lunch, a cocktail afternoon, after-work drinks or a night of dancing to big name DJs, Bungalow 8 is ideal any time of the day, all week long.
