Vine Double Bay launched this week as another addition to the Sydney suburb’s burgeoning drinking and dining alternatives.
Owned by Gavin Douchkov and Manny Karson and with Sydney hospitality veteran Mikee Collins as general manager, Vine Double Bay is located in the old Zigolini’s site on Short Street. A modern and sophisticated menu is complemented by a 50-strong wine list, international craft beers and cocktails inspired by vine-grown fruit and vegetables.
“Double Bay already has a number of great bars, cafes and restaurants and we are confident that Vine Double Bay will be a welcome addition to the area,” said Collins. “The venue will offer approachable food and wine along with great service and a relaxed atmosphere.”
“The venue is modern, open and filled with natural light – making it perfect for afternoon drinks, dinner with friends or a long lunch.”
The kitchen team is led by Chef Drew Bolton, whose experience includes Thomas Keller’s renowned French Laundry in California’s Napa Valley, Darley’s at Lillianfells in the Blue Mountains and Peter Gilmore’s Quay.
Vine Double Bay will be open for dinner from Tuesday to Saturday and lunch Thursday to Sunday.
