Considering Sydney’s rich show culture, it is almost beyond belief that this is one of the only places to get a decent meal till late. If you’ve ever poured out of a theatre at 11pm, stomach growling, you’ll understand the horrors of wandering the streets for hours being met with nothing but, “Sorry, kitchen’s closed,” before settling for a doner-kebab.
The Iguana Bar kitchen is open until the punters stop rolling in and the food is great. After a small appetiser of bruschetta, we shared a sizzling garlic prawns. For main course, my companion ordered the wild barramundi fillet marinated in virgin olive oil and oregano with lemon butter and I chose a very succulent lamb fillet with rosemary glaze and onion chutney. Delicious. The menu is complemented by a fabulous wine selection, from which we chose the velvety Elderston cabernet sauvignon from the Barossa Valley.
Completely separate to the restaurant is a bar area with low stainless steel tables and bench seats.
Through another door, you’ll find the back-bar with a stage area and pool table.
Iguana Bar is a favourite post-gig party venue for the entertainment industry and you are likely to see a familiar face or two straight from your movie or television screen.
The lounge offers great cocktails, a comprehensive selection of champagne, spirits and Australian wines. With 3 separate areas Iguana Bar & Restaurant is an ideal function venue, allowing you to stay in one place the whole night. For groups of 10 persons a set menu applies which includes mezze and anti pasta platters followed by a choice of 4 main courses complemented by bread, fries and salad.
Exclusive private functions are available for lunch and day events.
