Hotel Ravesis launches new menu with a Spring Fling Party

Spring is officially here when, and only when, Hotel Ravesis hosts their annual Spring Fling Party Extravaganza!

When at Bondi Beach, you want to watch the sunset while drinking delicious cocktails and eating fantastic food, and this is precisely what we did at Hotel Ravesis’ Spring Fling party on Thursday, 26 October 2017, for the launch of their new spring / summer menu.  Sydney’s hottest party-goers grooved to the hip sounds of summer, while sampling the exciting, new food and drink menu.

The cocktails included the 321 Dance (made with watermelon infused vodka, apple juice, angostura bitters and egg white) and the Contratto Spritz (made with Contratto, prosecco and soda water).  The watermelon vodka is infused in-house, lending a creative and unique touch.  Guests were also served Heineken beer and Heineken 3, a refreshing lower alcohol version of the original, prefect for barbecue season.

The refreshed menu items included: cabasera, cracker and green tomato pickle; brandage, smoked roe and grilled sourdough; crystal bay prawns (peeled) with sherry aioli dip; Sydney rock oysters with vinegar and spring onion dressing; porcini mushroom pate, house pickles and grilled sourdough; and scallops on the shell.

Occupying prime real estate overlooking the most iconic beach on the planet, the food and drinks menu may have received a Spring refresh, but I’m pleased to say that the atmosphere and service are the same as ever.  With the long, hot summer just around the corner, Ravesis refreshing cocktails are sure to be the coolest accessories in town!

Hotel Ravesis relaunches just in time for summer

Hotel Ravesis celebrated the relaunch of their hotel with a party on Thursday 10 November 2016.

Ravesis is located opposite Bondi beach and has unbeatable views of the beach and sidewalk. The hotel was built over a hundred years ago by two Italian immigrants called the Ravesis brothers. They sold the building about 25 years ago to its current owners who refurbished it and turned it into a Bondi institution. The venue has been refurbished again just in time for summer. Inspired by the beachside playgrounds of Miami and Cuba, the hotel has resurrected its former art deco glory.  The interiors have been replaced with a lighter colour palatte of citruses and pale pinks.

Ex-Catalina chef Peter Streckfuss has been hired as head chef and will be serving Mediterranean inspired dishes. The cocktails will mostly be the classics with a twist, and the hotel has entered into a partnership with Pommery to supply the champagne.

The party was attended by mostly Bondi locals who came to see the new look of Bondi’s most iconic boutique hotel while enjoying cocktails, canapes and live entertainment.

The cocktails of the night were: Sgroppino made from Messina lemon sorbet, Ketel One Citron and prosecco and Passionfruit Collins made from Tanqueray gin, passionfruit juice and mint garnish.

Guests were also offered: Heineken; Heineken 3; Tyrells Moores Creek Semillon Sauvignon Blanc; Ravesis Pinor Noir; Brut de Villeroy French Champagne; Brut De Villeroy French Sparkling and Pommery Champagne.

The canapes served were: goats cheese tart; prawn sliders; tuna sliders; mushroom polenta; and rare roast beef croutons.

Hotel Ravesis is perfect for those lazy afternoon drinks in the downstairs bar or a glam night of eating and dancing upstairs on their terrace. It also has 12 boutique hotel rooms to stay at.

Hotel Ravesis is located at 118 Campbell Parade Bondi beach NSW 2026.
