Located at the Sydney Central end of George Street, Platform 818 Restaurant & Bar is a brand new 200-seat restaurant located within Mercure Sydney, which is now open.
Platform 818’s restaurant concept takes inspiration from its prime location, conveniently located opposite Sydney’s historic Central Station. When it first opened in 1855, Sydney’s Central Station was a simple wooden platform, nothing more than a corrugated iron shed. Platform 818 have taken some of this rustic inspiration for its own industrial interior and the menu draws on the fact that directly below the hotel lies the now unused original Goods Line Tunnel that connected Sydney Rail Yard and the Sydney-Parramatta railway line to the shipping port of Darling Harbour.
Even the produce served at Platform 818 Restaurant & Bar has a great story to tell, with hero items on the menu sourced from railway towns along the New South Wales goods line that once would have travelled into Sydney’s Central Station via the Goods Line Tunnel.
The restaurant’s signature drink is the highball cocktail, inspired by the practice of serving beverages in tall highball glasses on steam trains. Carefully crafted cocktails are fashioned by Platform 818’s resident Mixologist, using bespoke PS40 soda served with flavour-infused blocks of ice, beautifully decorated in highball glassware. With equally creative names, the favourites are sure to be Tokyo to Osaka, Platform 9¾, Gare De Grenoble and Spring Bluff Station. Not to miss is the inimitable whisky terrarium experience with bespoke crafted whisky tastefully paired with hand-crafted chocolate truffle.
Platform 818’s all-Australian wine list features the lesser known and the rising heroes, curated to highlight the diversity and complexity that is the world of Australian winemakers, producers and regional growers.
