The revamped Gazebo of Elizabeth Bay has opened, complete with dark-wood finishes, a grand piano and a chandelier in a nod to her opulent heyday of the 1960s.
Reopening in early October, the relaunch hopes to deliver that tricky combination of a whole new energy while maintaining the feel of a neighbourhood wine bar for local residents. Head chef Jason Dean (Pier and Gastro Park) has created a menu focused on share plates, community dining and the wood-fired oven, including a selection of wood-fired pizzettas available in the courtyard.
The wines have again been taken care of by Keystone’s sommelier, Sarah Limacher, and include a monthly selection from her travels, as well as classic Negronis, Martinis, craft beer and cider and the signature Chilcano de Pisco cocktail on tap. The new look has been driven by Keystone Group creative director Paul Shultz, and is part of a number of relaunches and upgrades for the hospitality group.
