Natural light, inviting dark timber, metalwork and floor-to-ceiling glass doors maximise Cafe Sydney's breathtaking views of Sydney harbour. Interior design by Hong Kong based John Morford complements the heritage of Customs House.
Recycled black butt timber flooring has been sourced from other demolished historical buildings in Sydney, and artist Angus McDonald's specially commissioned paintings of the Harbour Bridge adorn the main restaurant.
In addition to the original interior, Hassell Architects have artfully integrated the contemporary and classic with the Lounge, refurbished in late 2014.
The Lounge complements and invigorates the restaurant perfectly, offering the ultimate relaxed experience with a minimal edge. A large dramatic mirror wall is a significant feature and as evening approaches the expansive mirror transforms into a shimmering art wall of colour and shape. The dynamic installation, created by light artist Canadian born Bruce Ramus especially for Cafe Sydney, follows on his from work with the likes of REM, U2, David Bowie and Vivid.
“Light is the energy felt in the body and that experience connects us all”, says Bruce Ramus..
At present, Cafe Sydney will not open until late June / early July, as we must await the NSW Premier’s announcement of Step 3 in the government’s plan to ease Coronavirus restrictions, allowing for greater numbers.
We have been inundated and delighted with your enthusiasm, however with the current guest limitation, this is not viable for us.
It has been quiet on the terrace without you, we look forward to the sound of Champagne popping, the buzz of friends, colleagues and families occupying our convivial restaurant.
We are extremely fortunate with our gorgeous, spacious restaurant, which is the perfect location for social distance dining.
We are longing to welcome you soon at Cafe Sydney.
Jan, Todd, James and the Cafe Sydney team
