The Island Bar on Cockatoo Island – something to chirp about
Sydney Harbour on a summer’s afternoon is one of the world’s great gems and the opportunity to sit back with a lively cocktail in hand plonk in the middle of it is one of life’s great treats.
The Island Bar on Cockatoo Island, melding in amongst the monolithic remains of the bygone industrial usage of the island, is a unique and quirky scene.
Marco Faraone, mixologist of Bacco Wine Bar fame, conjured up ship loads of glass clad liquid taste sensations as good hearty fare on huge slabs of toast came in waves large enough to still any sailors appetite.
The drinks, the food and the location wove a spell over us all and no-one seemed inclined to do more than just recline in the striped deck chairs randomised around on the quasi grass.
The Island Bar is re-cycling heaven. Shipping containers meshed together to form a structure alongside tables that were cable reels in a past life. It works brilliantly!
The Island Bar has actually been in operation for a couple of months honing up it’s act and the morse code is it will remain open until April 2011 at least.
