Lady Banks Rooftop Bar, is a stunning new venue, located on top of Flinders Centre in the heart of Bankstown, offering food and drink as delightful as the views taking in Sydney’s skyline, and continuing across to the Blue Mountains.

Floor to ceiling bi-fold doors open up to the spectacular outdoor terrace, fitted with a mix of timber-slatted high and low tables, paired with comfortable seating and plush lounge settings.

Lady Banks is serving a wide-selection of hand-picked wines, beers, including some brewed on-site as well as classic and specially-crafted cocktails. The Lady Banks Rooftop team will also blend their own rum, and age their own spirits in an American Oak Barrel produced in Melbourne.

In addition, Venue Manager Francesco Motta said that gin holds a special place at Lady Banks Rooftop Bar.

“In the spirit of collaborating with the best, we have partnered with Sydney’s premier producer Archie Rose Distilling Co. As well as stocking their full range, and with Archie Rose’s help, we also distil our own gin. Our botanicals are carefully selected by our team and crafted by the best distilling skills available in the country,” Francesco said.

“The depth of experience this partnership brings is further highlighted by our signature barrel aged cocktail ‘Archie Says’ where a blend of spirits, including our very own Lady Banks Gin by Archie Rose, are aged in American oak for three months before our mixology experts work their magic by introducing an array of fresh ingredients right before your eyes.

“We are confident that with every drink you enjoy at Lady Banks Rooftop Bar, you will relish the craftsmanship of this incredible team in fusing not only the blend of liquors, but also the extra characteristics that Archie Rose brings with new flavours and aromas.”

The cocktail menu also allows for sharing which is showcased by The Usual Suspects; a vodka, watermelon and basil cocktail for four people, served in a three-litre crystal dispenser.

The food menu is also based around sharing with small and large dishes including Kingfish Crudo, croquettes, charred octopus as well as freshly baked pizza and flatbread. While the bar’s signature dish is The Lady Banks 1.3kg ‘Pinnacle Tomahawk Steak’.

Bankstown Sports Group CEO, Mark Condi, said: “Lady Banks Rooftop Bar is the pièce de résistance of The Flinders Centre and leads the charge in changing the face of Bankstown into a truly desirable destination.

“The dedication of our team who committed themselves to our vision for Lady Banks Rooftop Bar has been incredible and I have absolute confidence that our customers will be thrilled with what they will discover when they walk through the door: a sky-soaring haven of botanical beauty in the heart of Sydney.”

Pony Design Co have created a venue with earthy, neutral tones bringing together the bar, terraces and internal dining areas, which features a fireplace at its heart to help make this a bar customers can enjoy all year round.
