Sydney's Hello Sailor bar, which opened its doors in Darlinghurst in June this year, is now serving food into the late hours of the night.
Hello Sailor patrons will now be able to enjoy a range of the bar's Italian diner-style menu till 2am (from Sundays till Thursdays) and 3am on Fridays and Saturdays.
"We believe there is a real lack of good dining choices in Darlinghurst later at night," said co-owner Marco Faraone.
"We can offer our customers great food – from my special 'MF' Italian style club sandwich to chicken wings – until 3am while they are still enjoying a drink; they don't have to wander the streets looking for food."
Dishes on offer include lobster burgers, Tuscan style panigaccis and a range of paninis. And it's not just late night eating that the bar is championing, with Hello Sailor also offering guests complimentary aperitivo snacks from 5 to 7pm.
"We are also bringing back my all-time favourite tradition – aperitivo! There is nothing like relaxing after work with a Negroni or Aperol Spritz and some Italian crostini," said Faraone.
