Rockpool Dining Group’s casual clan re-open from Wednesday with Tap & Go and order-ahead technologies

Monday, 1 June 2020: Rockpool Dining Group’s NSW-based casual restaurants are calling time on hibernation this week and re-emerging with week-day happy hour celebrations, tap & go order and pay services, order-ahead and pick-up technology, and a safe-dining pledge for all guests.

Ten casual restaurants open in Sydney on Wednesday, 3 June, including El Camino Cantina, Fratelli Fresh, The Bavarian, and WingHAÜS by Bavarian. All restaurants will feature contactless, tap and go me&u mobile phone order and payment technology, which negates the need for menus on the table and manual cash or card transactions for customers who download the app. Each restaurant will also use the Ritual order ahead platform, which enables diners to order and pay ahead for pick-up meals, using a mobile phone app.

El Camino Cantina in The Rocks and Manly re-open on Wednesday at 4pm with the best Tex-Mex trifecta of happy hour, hump day, and Wing Wednesday activities seen in weeks – quite literally.

The El Camino crew is hand-making the tortillas, mixing the Margaritas, and spicing up the buffalo wings ready for its famous, mid-week wingding, when sauced-up, 10-cent wings are a drawcard.

Savvy diners can multi-task and tackle 10-cent wings and happy hour from 4pm to 6pm every Wednesday. Happy hour continues from 4pm to 6pm every week-day when a range of drinks are a $7.50 steal, including El

Camino Cantina’s legendary margaritas served frozen and on the rocks. Craft beer, tequila and wine join the happy hour fun. Obligatory bottomless tortilla chips and salsas and colourful sombreros are free for all diners.

Or take a no-holds-barred approach to the first night on the town with a three-course Tex-Mex Fiesta that includes free-flowing margaritas, beer and wine for $79 per person. The fiesta menu includes tortilla chips and guacamole, buffalo wings with blue-cheese mayo, char-grilled chicken fajitas, and churros with chocolate and caramel sauce.

Fratelli Fresh at Darling Harbour and Crows Nest also open this Wednesday at midday and guests can celebrate an out-of-iso lifestyle with Fratelli’s famous happy hour from 4pm to 6pm week-days. Enjoy aperitivo vibes with $8 wine, craft beer and cocktails, including the quintessential Aperol spritz, negroni and espresso martini, alongside $5 antipasti, such as calamari, bruschetta, zucchini flowers, arancini, marinated olives and fries.

Segue into dinner with Fratelli’s famous pizza, pasta, and salad options, or enjoy a three-course Festa Italiana that includes shared antipasti, pizza, pasta, salad and gelato, plus free-flowing Aperol spritz, espresso martini, wine, and craft beer for $79 each. Bambini under 12 years of age can eat from the children’s menu for free daily.

WingHAÜS by Bavarian at Gateway dining precinct at Circular Quay will be turning on the big-screen TVs to live sports from 11am this Wednesday. Catch happy hour from 5pm to 7pm Monday to Friday with $5 wine, $6 pints of beer, and $11 steins of beer and $7.50 margarita, negroni, Aperol spritz and espresso martini. Happy hour bites include 50-cent classic wings, and $5 side dishes, such as giant pretzels, chips, onion rings, potato gems, and deep-fried pickles.

Choose menu favourites including three types of wings in 10-piece to 100-piece serves with nine sauces and extra dips, and six burgers by Burger Project.

Turn up to WingHAÜS this Sunday, 7 June and tune in to the Ultimate Fighting Championship headlined by Amanda Nunes who puts her featherweight championship on the line against Felicia Spencer. A two-hour Fight Feast package includes 10 wings, a giant pretzel, chips, and onion rings, alongside free-flowing selected drinks.

The Bavarian re-opens at Bondi Beach, Charlestown, Rouse Hill, Macarthur, and Shellharbour at 12pm on Wednesday, with a week-day happy hour of $5, 300ml beers, spirits, and wine, and $7.50, 500ml beers.
