Ananas Bar and Restaurant The Rocks Sydney Opening Night Launch photos and story; MiSociety 10 October 2012
Ananas Bar and Restaurant opens with loads of glitz and glamour (but minus those ‘lips’)
Ananas Bar and Restaurant is not just ‘yet another’ venue to the Sydney food and bar scene judging by the official launch cocktail party.
Ananas hosted a night of glamour, glitz and NYE style fun for VIP guests from Sydney’s fashion, television, music and media. Guests included Sandra Sully, Conrad Coleby, Sarah McLeod, Danny Weidler, Neale Whitaker and Casey Burgess to name a few.
Michelle Martinez, one of Australia’s most in demand vocalists, rendered a magnetic performance as she slinked around the room and across Ananas’ stunning ‘pewter’ bar. ‘Babycham’ style glasses (everything old is new again) were kept full from the circulating Jeroboams and magnums of Veuve Clicquot and Marc. Each opening of these giant bottles was heralded by sparkler rockets. This now promises to be an Ananas tradition (MiSociety spies who visited at the weekend confirmed the fireworks display was still a feature).
Ananas ((French for pineapple), has been designed with a French Mediterranean theme.
Ananas’ ‘pineapples’ of all persuasions sit quirkily against the convict built stone interior walls with hanging birds and all manner of art decoish additions marrying up to create an ambient and warm atmosphere.
The urinal ‘lips’ had been removed prior the opening night with their story even making news in The Sun tabloid in the U.K. Now the question on everyone’s ‘lips’ is – where will they turn up next?
Jerome Lagarde, Executive Chef at Ananas has created the menu for both bar and brasserie with the canapés this night showcasing the light and modern fare and contemporary French cuisine to be on offer.
Ananas Bar and Restaurant, located at 18 Argyle Street The Rocks, Sydney, is within ‘The Argyle’ and a new venture from hospitality entrepreneur John Szangolies of Urban Purveyor group.
