GIVE IT THE BIRD
WHIRLY BIRD IN SYDNEY’S PYRMONT CELEBRATES COCKTAILS… AND POULTRY!
Near-city bar options continue to flourish in Sydney and the latest is Whirly Bird in Union Street, Pyrmont, opened by former Keystone Group figure Anthony Prior.
A bar and diner focusing on cocktails and share plates featuring fine poultry, Whirly Bird’s aim is “casual elegance” in a multi-function space that can seat 150 and includes a 12-person private dining area as well as bar, lounge and outdoor areas.
The menu includes signature rotisserie spit roast birds or killer buttermilk fried chicken paired with one of two sauces – chilli and honey caramel, or house-made Whirlybird smoky BBQ. The list also includes vegetarian and vegan options such as ‘salt ‘n’ pepper silken tofu’ with spring onions, ginger and ponzu.
Cocktails are the drinks focus, created by Rollo Anderson and Liam Doherty-penzer with a music history theme, but there are also classic and craft beers and a wine list with all options available by the glass. Whirly Bird, 84 Union Street, Pyrmont. Sun-wed, 12pm-12am; Thurs-sat, 12pm -1am. whirlybirdsydney.com.au; (02) 9660 7134.
