The team behind Sails on Lavender Bay will open Manly Greenhouse, a multi-storey beachfront bar and restaurant in April 2018.
Greg Anderson and Patricia Nunes will transform the former Shore Club Hotel to new glory – creating a hub for Manly locals and visitors alike.
‘The space has been vacant for almost four years, a wasted opportunity for our locals and visitors to enjoy those spectacular views – whether over a morning coffee, intimate dinner or rooftop cocktail,” Greg explained.
“We’ve witnessed the Manly Wharf grow in popularity over the years and we believe now is the time to breathe new life and hospitality into one of Sydney’s best beachfronts”
Manly Greenhouse will comprise three distinct levels; a casual street level bar offering all-day dining, middle level grill restaurant, and rooftop bar.
Designed by award-winning studio Luchetti Krelle (ACME, Banksii), the space will accommodate 400 pax across its three levels.
Taking inspiration from greenhouse forms, the steel structures and transparent materials used will be offset with abundant greenery.
At street level, the venue will offer a casual beachside bar and all-day dining. A glass frontage will connect diners with street and ocean views while the open floorplan offers close access to the bar, coffee counter and pizza oven.
The middle level will welcome a brand-new concept for the beachside destination, a refined restaurant where the menu will centre around a charcoal grill. Completing the space will be an impressive rooftop bar with panoramic ocean views. A light-filled oasis where a central bar will be the focal point, situated under a canopy of cascading ferns.
