The three-level waterfront venue finally gets new life breathed into it
The latest sky-high drinking destination is not out east, but north to the golden shores of Manly Beach. The old Shore Club Hotel, which has been standing vacant for four years, has been taken over by the same people behind Sails on Lavender Bay and they're sprucing the beachfront destination up and transforming it into the Manly Greenhouse.
For now the Greenhouse public bar and rooftop are ready to embrace the early spring sunshine. The ground floor will be the place for wood-fired pizzas, crab bruschetta, Ortiz sardines served in the tin, whole snapper, steak, pappardelle with slow-cooked brisket and a salted caramel sundae for dessert.
There will also be Aperol Spritz and Bulletproof Espresso Martinis on tap because they know the crowds will come once the weather warms up, and no-one likes waiting in queues. Upstairs the food is snackier, with toasties on the menu, and in both bars, space not reserved for humans will be given over to the plant world with ferns, hanging plants and pressed flowers. But really it's those seats with panoramic views out over the beach that are going to be the big drawcard here.
