    Grand Prix Australia 2022

    When Bentley moved into the grand dining room of the Radisson Blue Hotel in Sydney city, it evolved from neighbourhood wine bar to CBD heavy hitter, and now oozes style and confidence. The restaurant is very much it's own space within the hotel – black steel scaffolding lends a moody yet polished warehouse vibe that’s worlds away from the hotel lobby.

    The renowned Rockpool is an upmarket steak restaurant housed within the Crown Metropol precinct. The dining room is bold and serious, sitting alongside a large open kitchen. The bar is sophisticated, where excellent burgers alongside grand cru burgundy is most definitely an option. The encyclopaedic wine list takes time to peruse, as the regions of Europe are thoroughly represented. Verticals of Australian icons and plenty of back vintage wines are a real feature here.

    The pewter bar top welcomes you into a darkly lit, intimate space along Perth’s main business drag. The Heritage is a tale of two cities.
