It’s a bar, at the end of a wharf…

The name isn’t misleading. This is a bar, at the end of a wharf, in Walsh Bay. Follow the rustic wooden path to the end of Pier 4 and the stunning venue that is the Sydney Theatre Company’s bar opens before you. The Harbour Bridge looms overhead, the water laps at the piers’ wooden beams below and the floor-to-ceiling windows flood the interior with natural light.

In the artsy spirit, The Bar at The End of the Wharf is a chilled out space that works for pre-theatre drinks, weekday lunches or even just a casual coffee. In fact, it’s so chilled out that you could easily take up a seat on the deck and read a book or even just use the free-wifi. What a treat, right? No tutting waiters ordering you out the door as soon as you’ve taken your last sip of wine and certainly no hoity toity formal dining setting.

The concise menu is on-trend with dishes such as wagyu sliders and charcuterie platters taking centre stage. Some of the other mains may not be instagram-worthy but they’re value-for-money and tasty. What more could you ask for with a location like this?

The launch of The Bar at the End of the Wharf

Last night, the Best Restaurant’s team welcomed a new addition to the Sydney hospitality scene –  the Sydney Theatre Company’s The Bar at the End of the Wharf.

STC’s The Bar at the End of the Wharf

Literally perched on the edge of water, with the Harbour Bridge looming overhead, and the STC just upstairs, The Bar at the End of the Wharf is casual and relaxed. Despite its stunning location, the restaurant prices are more than reasonable and the atmosphere hasn’t an ounce of pretension. Put more simply, STC artistic director Cate Blanchett said, “it’s the kind of place you just want to hang out at – have a drink, read a book and use the free-wifi.”

The lack of late night dining options in Sydney will also draw in customers with the kitchen open till the wee hours of the morning. With its hip fit out, billion dollar views and value-for-money menu, I can only envisage that The Bar at the End of the Wharf will be so much more than a pre- and post- theatre dinner option.
