Sydney’s social set descended on Whirly Bird, a chicken and liquor venue located in Pyrmont, to celebrate their first birthday on Thursday 27 September 2018.
Whirly Bird is a pub cum chicken restaurant, located in Pyrmont, that serves the popular buttermilk fried chicken (paired with either chilli and honey caramel or house-made smoky BBQ sauce) and a variety of poultry dishes such as their rotisserie spit roast birds (available in quarter, half or whole), shredded chicken banh mi, burgers and even a chicken salad bowl. There are a number of vegetarian and vegan dishes on the menu including salt and pepper silken tofu with spring onions, ginger and ponzu and a vegan power bowl, and vegetable starters such as duck fat roasted carrots, celery-battered jalapeno poppers and kimchi slaw. The menu is designed for sharing with small plates, bar snacks and larger offerings.
The bar menu consists of a vast selection of quality beers, an extensive wine list, and a variety of spirits, liquors and classically inspired cocktails. The bar’s wall is decked out with classic vinyl records and the cocktail list is inspired by musical legends.
At the event, guests washed down the poultry canapes with champagne, wine, beer and cocktails that were made by The Rook’s former bartenders Rollo Anderson and Liam Doherty-Penzer.
Live jazz band, The Low Down Riders, supplied the tunes for the night before a special performance from the Burlesque girls who bring the glamour of the 1920s to Pyrmont every Saturday night with feathers, sequins and razzle dazzle. The final act, which is part of the Birdcage Sydney, included a girl performing a feather fan dance and swirled around in a champagne glass while removing items of clothing!
Whirly Bird is a great place for a casual feast or a few drinks with friends. The open plan venue is split into multiple areas, with a total seated capacity of 150. The 80-seater dining room includes a 12-person private dining area, as well as a bar, lounge and outdoor areas.
It is open from Sunday to Wednesday 12pm-12am and Thursday to Saturday from 12pm – 1am.
Whirly Bird is located at 84 Union Street Pyrmont.
