Some people may know the word sirocco to mean a Mediterranean wind that comes from the Sahara, but this is about to change with the launch of Sirocco Terrace, the new open-air garden space in the heart of Potts Point that opened on Wednesday, 24 January, 2018.
The area occupied by Sirocco Terrace was formerly the smoking section outside Sirocco Restaurant & Bar, on the ground floor of the Holiday inn Potts Point. But, in just five days, the hotel transformed it into a private sanctuary with an open-air leafy garden, festoon lights and white washed timber furniture. It is now used as a place for casual drinks, a weekend brunch spot, a lunch or dinner restaurant or an exclusive area that can be booked for parties.
Diners are able to order from the Sirocco Restaurant & Bar menu or the Sirocco Terrace menu, which consists of burgers, salads, shared platters, pizzas, pastas and items from the grill. The menu also has desserts including a rooftop honey panacotta which is made with honey from the hotel’s own rooftop beehive!
The bar has a range of beers, wines, spirits and cocktails. At the launch party, we were served beers from the Rocks Brewing Co. and award-wining wines from Grant Burge in the Barossa Valley.
Sirocco Terrace is located at 203 Victoria Street, Potts Point. It is open from 6:30am to 10pm, seven days a week for breakfast, lunch, dinner and casual drinks and snacks.
