You’ll find pasta, Italian coffee, 200 wines and gin distilled on-site when it opens this spring.
A whole heap of fresh faces are heading to The Hills this spring, as the multi-faceted Mullane’s Hotel prepares to throw open its doors. Sporting a big public bar, a sophisticated Italian restaurant and its own in-house vodka and gin distillery, it’s safe to say the new venue will have a little something for everyone.
At the heart of the sleek new development by Momento Hospitality (Bella Vista Hotel, The Governor), you’ll find contemporary Italian bar and eatery Sarino’s, dishing up refined fare, revamped classic Italian cocktails and a sprawling lineup of over 200 wines. The lofty first floor space will boast an elegant mix of plush furnishings and exposed brick, complete with private liquor cabinets where guests can stash their own personal bottles of top-shelf booze.
Next door, an on-site distillery will be whipping up its own range of gins and vodkas, along with limoncello and an almond liqueur to be used in the bar’s affogatos. On the ground floor, you’ll find a cafe slinging small plates alongside Italian coffee, adjoining the Mullane’s public bar and VIP lounge.
Mullane’s Hotel is set to be located on the ground level of a massive new multi-building hub opening opposite the new underground Norwest Train Station, which is part of the new billion-dollar Metro North West railway. The proposed hub, designed by PBD Architects, will be called Central Plaza and will consist of six towers for commercial use, two residential towers, a childcare centre and a community hub. Some of the towers could stretch a whole 40 storeys into the sky.
Mullane’s Hotel will open at 34-36 Brookhollow Avenue, Baulkham Hills. The public bar is set to open in September, with Sarino’s Restaurant following in October.
