Manly Greenhouse Restaurant & Rooftop Bar to Open in April

The team behind Sails on Lavender Bay is set to open Manly Greenhouse,  a multi-storey beachfront restaurant and rooftop bar.

Manly Greenhouse

Previously home to the Shore Club Hotel, the venue has been vacant for almost four years. Greg Anderson and Patricia Nunes will transform the space to new glory – creating a hub for Manly locals and visitors alike. Taking its name and cues from the free-spirited culture and natural beauty of the coastal suburb, Manly Greenhouse will comprise three distinct levels; a casual street level bar offering all-day dining, middle level grill restaurant, and rooftop bar.  

The team has enlisted award-winning studio Luchetti Krelle (ACME, Banksii) to design the space which accommodates 400 across its three levels. Taking inspiration from greenhouse forms, the steel structures and transparent materials used will be offset with abundant greenery. Collaborations with local plant specialists, The Plant Room and illustrator Beci Orphin will continue the vision, with verdant, lush plant life and a specially commissioned series of pressed flowers, representing indigenous flora and natives.

At street level, the venue will offer a casual beachside bar and all-day dining. A glass frontage will connect diners with street and ocean views while the open floorplan offers close access to the bar, coffee counter and pizza oven. The middle level will welcome a brand-new concept for the beachside destination, a refined restaurant where the menu will centre around a charcoal grill. Completing the space will be an impressive rooftop bar with panoramic ocean views. A light-filled oasis where a central bar will be the focal point, situated under a canopy of cascading ferns.

Manly Greenhouse is set to open in April 2018.
