Sky high: Taylor’s at the Republic Hotel. Photo: SuppliedSydney’s rooftop bar and food movement has a new pin-up. Taylor’s has opened at the Republic Hotel, on the corner of Pitt and Bridge Streets, in the CBD.
It’s a rooftop space with a difference, owner Patrick Ryan peeling away the roof cyclone-style to create the space.
“I’ve been told people usually get convertible cars, not convertible pubs. But it has let us keep the old features, like the heritage windows,” he says.
With vertical garden, copper barrels, exposed beams and a clever menu from former Morrison chef Lee Thompson – including prawn tacos and roasted five-spice chicken with coleslaw – Taylor’s is the latest in an expected new wave of open rooftop CBD venues.
As well as sympathetic weather, Ryan believes Sydney workers crave outdoor spaces as many spend all day inside on computers.
