Rockpool Bar takes over Spice Temple Sydney

Wednesday, 3 June 2020: If you are yearning to visit Rockpool Bar & Grill but can’t secure a table due to high demand for limited seats, then ease your way downstairs to Spice Temple where a Rockpool Bar takeover is about to get underway.

Rockpool Bar & Grill is set to re-open on Thursday, 4 June for dinner from 6pm to 9pm, in accordance with government restrictions on dining numbers and regulations on social distancing.

With the restaurant almost fully booked through to Saturday, 6 June (limited availability remains for Thursday dinner and Friday lunch), guests who miss a table can still enjoy a delightful Rockpool fix at the Rockpool Bar takeover.

In line with Rockpool Dining Group’s phased re-opening of its restaurants, Spice Temple remains temporarily closed, enabling the Rockpool Bar team to make use of the basement restaurant for a stylish takeover soiree.

Guests can enjoy a pre-lunch or pre-dinner drink before heading upstairs to Rockpool to dine, or make a full experience of the takeover with some of Rockpool’s favourite bar dishes and drinks available, not to forget Spice Temple’s famous spice-fried wings.

With seating for up to 50 guests available, there are two sittings: Tuesday to Friday, midday to 2pm, and Tuesday to Saturday, 5pm to 8pm.

Walk-ins are welcome, or bookings can be made by telephone: 02 8099 7077.

The menu includes:

Olives 6
Macadamias with Ancho Chilli 8
Rockpool Zuni Pickle Burger 18
Cheeseburger 18
Spice Temple Wings 18
Fat Cut Chips 8
Brisket Gravy 4
Radicchio Salad 9
