Sydney pub group Keystone has continued its strong finish to 2012, opening a rooftop bar and eatery named after the legendary Kings Cross café, Sweethearts.  

Keystone, which recently launched the refurbished Newtown Hotel, has styled the new Kings Cross venue in honour of the 70s barbeque. Situated above Keystone's Sugarmill Hotel and Kit&Kaboodle nightclub, Sweethearts features food, cocktails and theming reminiscent of good times in the sun.  

The 12 o'clock license helps The Keystone Group to encourage more day trade, and scale the rooftop access down later to provide a smoking solution for patrons from other areas. [continues below]

The new aspect to the Sugarmill Hotel both helps keep people off the streets – a positive step in congested Kings Cross – and according to Keystone director John Duncan "has made the complex complete".

"We've even got an old Streets freezer where we keep the Cornettos and choc-tops," Duncan told TheShout. 

"It's all about the venue as a multi-storey 'entertainment precinct', and coming up here, having a beer – or even one of our unique shandies – and chilling out."
