Bopp & Tone, the latest venue by Sydney hospitality group Applejack, opened its doors on Tuesday (13 November, 2018) with a launch party brimming with celebrities, local media and influencers.
More than 300 guests attended the launch of the new venue, ideally located at 60 Carrington Street, just steps away from Sydney’s Wynyard Station.
The venue, which was formerly Steel Bar & Grill, can be utilised for corporate events and dinners, with a number of areas and private dining spaces on offer.
Upon arrival, guests were offered a choice of cocktails designed by group bars manager Lachy Sturrock and bar manager Craig Kerrison, while GH Mumm Champagne flowed throughout the night.
Group executive chef Jason Roberson worked with head chef Sa Va’afusuaga to create a taster menu showcasing the venue’s food offering, which is centred around honest and generous share food with Mediterranean influences.
Dishes included Mooloolaba prawns from the charcoal oven, Brooklyn Valley sirloin served with Béarnaise sauce, wood-grilled lamb cutlets and spiced eggplant with goats curd and pistachio.
A substantial cheese and charcuterie station was also a prominent feature on the night.
Guest of honour, 94-year-old Anthony ‘Tone’ Adams, (grandfather of Applejack co-founder Ben Carroll and one of the venues namesakes) officially opened the evening with a ribbon-cutting commemoration.
A champagne tower cascaded Perrier Jouet into coupe glasses for guests to enjoy, while a live jazz band entertained the crowd.
