Bar Of The Week: Endeavour Tap Rooms
What’s on the menu?
The restaurant menu lends itself to the exceptional beers on tap. Head Chef Sam Tingle has created a menu focusing on a range of smoked produce, and all the meats are smoked in a Yoder YS1500. The on-tap beers and ferments play a key role in the kitchen, and there are a large array of fresh and lively greens, vibrant salads, homemade sauces and interesting sides.
Care for a drink?
Endeavour is the first ever location for Endeavour Vintage Beer Co.’s own brewery, and follows the brand’s unique philosophy of using all-Australian, seasonally harvested ingredients with no preservatives. Newly opened this month, the venue boasts an innovative Australian designed double-stacked 600-litre brew house. The team is planning meet-the-brewer dinners and tours, as well as producing distinctive, interesting and craft beers that won’t be found anywhere else.
Old school classics, pop music… A mix of everything!
Award-winning Australian brewer Endeavour Vintage Beer Co, and seasoned hospitality professionals Applejack Hospitality have opened an exciting collaboration in The Rocks within a building that once housed Sydney’s longest-running colonial hotel, Seaman’s. Inspired by the building’s long history of publican life, the team have opened Endeavour Tap Rooms, an onsite brewery, bar and restaurant.
The job of transforming the venue into a contemporary space, whilst simultaneously paying homage and respect to the building’s classic history, was entrusted to Welsh + Major, an architectural firm well-known for transforming heritage and historical sites. The result is understated and modern interiors, all boasting art deco references.
The renovation of the venue coincided with the $15 million NSW Government initiative to renew and revitalise heritage retail tenancies in The Rocks, inspired by successful strategies in heritage retail precincts around the world, including SoHo in New York City and Le Marais in Paris.
Overall the Endeavour Tap Rooms team wanted to create a venue with the heart of Endeavour and soul of Applejack. Endeavour is an Australian brand, rich with integrity and focussed on using the finest ingredients, while Applejack delivers consistent fun and friendly service with a focus on epic food.
The bill comes to:
The Brewers Plate is $28 per person, and features two meats from the smoker, potato salad, cabbage slaw and a bread roll. It goes great with an Endeavour tasting paddle, $15 per person, which features four Endeavour beer samples from our taps.
