Novotel Sydney Central unveiled their new outdoor bar, The Grove Rooftop Bar, to over 100 media and influencers on Thursday 19 January 2017.
The bar is located on the eighth floor of Novotel Sydney Central, Haymarket and nestled within the hotel’s outdoor garden on a converted putt-putt course.
The pop-bar has a relaxed casual atmosphere featuring fairy and festoon lighting, director chair seating, recycled timber furniture (that conceal the holes of the former mini golf course) and green synthetic turf.
The Grove Rooftop offers a selection of beers served in cans, along with a limited selection of wines and spirits. The wines on offer include: McWilliams Markview Brut; McWilliams High Altitude Pinot Grigio; Essenza Sauvignon Blanc; McWilliams Chardonney; McWilliams Bagtown Pinot Noir; McWilliams High Altitude Shiraz; and McWilliams Cabernet Merlot.
Guests also enjoyed two cocktails on the night: Solerno Serata (made of Solerno, pink grapefruit juice, orange bitters, and sparkling water) and Hendrick’s Sunburnt Fizz (made of Hendrick’s Gin, slices of cucumber, lime, mango nectar, sugar syrup and mineral water).
The menu consists of crowd pleasers such as sweet potato fries with house made truffle oil and organic honey, wedges with sweet chilli and sour cream, loaded fries topped with bacon, melted cheese and chipotle mayo, and nacho style hot chips loaded with spicy ground beef, melted mozzarella, jalapeño and sour cream.
The Grove Rooftop Bar uses five UE Boom’s Mega Boom Bluetooth speakers to deliver music to the venue. The speakers are weather and shock proof, and pump out incredible 360-degree sound.
The Grove Rooftop is open to Novotel Sydney Central guests and external patrons from Wednesday to Sunday from 5:30pm until 10pm until 31 March 2017.
