“The Pullman Quay Grand has opened its doors with the newly appointed Hacienda”
Hacienda (click here) is a lavishly appointed “vista bar” situated in the gorgeous Pullman Quay Grand above Circular Quay.
Applejack Hospitality (think The Butler, Bondi Hardware & So Cal) have joined forces with AccorHotels to create this delightful harbour-side bar setting.
Hacienda is inundated with stunning panoramic views of the city and harbour but even with these gorgeous views, the bar is a view in itself. Inspired by the grand plantation architecture of Cuban and Miami vintage hotels in the 1950’s. The glamour and glitz of Miami has been combined with the more relaxed, fun and colourful influence of Cuba.
Featuring brass detailing, lush greenery and pastel lounges, this Harbourside setting is a great place to unwind and relax or to start the beginning of a night out on the town.
What we ate
EMPTY EMPANADAS – beef empanadas with guacamole
VACA FRITA – Charred skirt steak w/ chimichurri
PORK NECK MOJO – Pork neck marinated in garlic w/ pineapple & parsley
JAMON CROQUETTES – served w/ cheese sauce
BUENA VISTA CLUB – Banana infused pisco, Tio Pepe, lemon, honey, egg white
HACIENDA BOTTLE MOJITO – #2 20 Havana especial rum, vanilla syrup, yuzu juice, mint soda water
For us, it was more of the atmosphere, the location and the drinks that made our evening enjoyable. Our top picks for the food would have been the Jamon Croquettes and the Pork Neck Mojo, while the other items were a little bit of a miss. The pre-mixed drinks (such as the mojito) were a great touch to the menu and made service extremely quick considering how busy it was.
Hacienda is a fabulous place for a drink (or two) and enjoy some nibbles while enjoying the stunning view of Sydney’s harbour and CBD.
