The Justin Hemmes-owned Merivale group has announced that its latest beachside venue – The Collaroy – will re-open its doors later this month.

The group has promised that the venue will offer a variety of casual dining experiences, allowing punters to pop in for food and a drink after a swim and then stay the whole day.

Executive Chef Jordan Toft said he has taken inspiration from the venue’s spectacular location, describing the food as “simple, yet elegant food for a community that loves the sun, surf and sand”.

In a statement about the opening, Merivale said: “The Collaroy’s ground floor will have an evolving offering throughout the day. Upstairs, guests will find an open kitchen and two bars to choose from. The wine list is classic with a focus on fresh, crisp white and rosé, while the drinks menu is a perfect representation of drinks to be drunk by the sea, created by the best and brightest bartenders from The Newport, Papi Chulo and Coogee Pavilion.”

Offering breakfast, lunch and dinner The Collaroy will also give visitors the choice of wood-fired pizza creations through ‘pizza maestro’ Vincenzo Biondini.

The specific opening date for The Collaroy will be announced soon, but Merivale said it would be taking bookings via its website for the venue from 19 May.
