The Kazal family recently opened a new multi-level venue in The Rocks, Sydney, which is located in one of area’s most historic buildings and contains a variety of bars and a 120-seat restaurant.
Bar 100 spans three levels of restored heritage space with capacity for 850 people.
The venue is divided into a number of rooms and bars (Bar 100, The Chapel, 8Brothers, 1909, The Sunroom and The Terrace) offering guests different dining and drinking options.
Bar 100’s main level features cathedral high ceilings, chandeliers and a 12-metre long centrepiece brass bar with booths that fit up to 10 people.
Adjacent to the main bar is The Chapel, which is available for private functions and events with room for up to 80 people, while an additional VIP bar, 1909, is located on the next level and will be officially opened on November 1.
In addition to the numerous bars, the site also contains The Sunroom restaurant on the ground floor, which headed by executive chef, Michael Rantissi, who has previously worked at Melbourne’s Vue De Monde as well as Sydney’s Pier Restaurant and Bather’s Pavilion.
The Sunroom can seat 120 people and offers a food menu that fuses Middle Eastern ingredients with French cooking techniques and includes share plates and woodfire pizzas.
“Bar 100 focuses only on superb quality and cutting edge food, entertainment and drinks, in a world class venue. This is the place you come to drink and eat,” owner Charif Kazal said.
“This venue offers something for everyone whether you are entertaining VIP clients, a family for Sunday lunch or a group of friends wanting to dance the night away on the weekend. It is a rarity to combine all those elements in the Sydney market”.
