Sydney’s Circular Quay precinct has welcomed a multi-level dining and events venue, transforming one of the city’s most historic sites.
Dating back to the 1860’s and one of Sydney’s last remaining wool stores, Hinchcliff House has been carefully restored to offer four new dining and event concepts, led by the team at House Made Hospitality.
Hinchcliff House will seat more than 450 people and employ 120 staff across its four venues: all day dining hub Grana, lively restaurant Lana, Sicilian-inspired drinking den Apollonia and Hinchcliff House Events on the top floor.
“We’re excited to bring a taste of Italy to the heart of Sydney, in one of its oldest and most historic buildings, Hinchcliff House in Quay Quarter,” said House Made Hospitality creative director Scott Brown.
“This project has the very best team of hospitality experts at its disposal to ensure everything from the creative direction, the culinary offerings, the fresh ingredients and customer service is of the highest quality.”
Starting at the ground floor, Grana is known as the the beating heart of Hinchcliff House, serving up breakfast, lunch and dinner. Taking its name from the Italian word for ‘grain’, Grana is complete with an on-site bakery, pasta room and pastry kitchen.
Apollonia is also now open, boasting an extensive spirits list, lots of negronis and other creative twists on Italian cocktails
Set to open in June, Lana offers a premium-casual level of dining on the first floor, with a sophisticated shared menu on offer.
On the top floor, Hinchcliff House Events is a blank canvas with exposed brick, wooden beams and original windows which flood the space with natural light.
With a capacity of 170 people for a seated event, menus from Grana, Lana and Apollonia and its very own bar, the venue will become a versatile space for a variety of events when it opens soon.
