The good news keeps coming for Sydney/Gadigal nightlife with a green light for a multi-level, multi-venue bar and restaurant announced for July.
The ever-growing hospitality business The Point Group – behind other local standout venues including Harpoon Harry and The Dolphin Hotel say the project, dubbed ‘Shell House’ will be a destination for the creative, fun and social in the CBD.
Housed in the Brookfield Place development just behind Wynard Station will be essentially four venues in one. Stepping off the street and onto the ground floor will find you in a day and night bar and bistro, before zooming up to level nine and into a dining room and terrace. For those not afraid of heights, a sky-bar on level 10 when it finally opens in October.
Point Group CEO Brett Robinson said “We want to create an oasis in the heart of the city, that tells a new and interesting story as you travel through the three levels of hospitality. We will create a new centre of gravity for good times in the city.”
If their music policy across their venues is anything to go by, each floor will be oozing disco, house and laid-back beats from local selectors and even the odd international. In the past Harpoon Harry alone has boasted veteran DJ Phil Smart, Dangerous Dan of Bang Gang, techno crew Motorik, Adi Toohey, Simon Caldwell and more.
With a 15-year lease secured they hope to be a frontal push for Sydney/Gadigal nightlife and join the new YCK Laneways precinct around the corner as well as grand plans for Kings Cross, Cockatoo Island and George Street.
What about that time Boiler Room touched down in Sydney for a daytime party?
