An intimate and luxurious cocktail bar

Teahouse

Alluring and seductive interiors set the scene for Teahouse, an exquisitely themed lounge bar serving high tea and cocktails.

Director, Bates Smart

Chinese pagodas and lacquered jewellery boxes have inspired the intricate detailing of bar cabinets, creating an elaborate theatrical backdrop to the space. Tented pavilions take the form of exotic oriental bird cages creating coveted semiprivate “pods” defining the soft threshold of the room.

The exposed timber ribs of these “cages” showcase immaculate attention to fine detailing, sculptural geometry, and fine craftsmanship. Sumptuous built-in banquettes, richly embroidered fabric wall linings and decorative bespoke light fixtures create highly layered interior settings.

The Teahouse seats 60 patrons and opens to an expansive outdoor terrace to provide an additional 24 guests with extraordinary views over Sydney Harbour. 

Sumptuous furnishings are complemented by lush landscaping, bespoke timber screens, and lanterns to extend the theme of the interior to this outdoor room.
