Green Moustache opens at Northpoint
On Wednesday 21 March, over 150 guests attended the official opening of North Sydney’s newest rooftop bar and restaurant at Northpoint. Green Moustache’s modern interiors consist of flourishing greenery, bright natural light and a delicious, seasonally-sourced menu.
Northpoint redevelopment’s finishing touch
The redevelopment of Northpoint began in early-2016, before reaching practical completion in March 2018. The $130 million undertaking included the addition of a new eight-storey, 187-room Vibe Hotel, as well as a rejuvenated retail and dining precinct, and a four-level glass structure at the southern end, named ‘the shard’.
The opening of Green Moustache is another significant milestone for Northpoint. Located atop the shard, Green Moustache’s floor-to-ceiling windows offer panoramic views of North Sydney’s bustling CBD.
What it means to North Sydney
Aside from a few scattered bars and restaurants, there hasn’t historically been much incentive to visit North Sydney after dark. However, as the first new bar and restaurant in North Sydney in over six years, Green Moustache is hoping to accelerate the transformation of the area into a seven-day destination.
Green Moustache’s ideology is to keep it ‘fun, fresh and seasonal with a focus on sustainability’.
What Green Moustache has to offer
Running the show at Green Moustache is Andrew Utiger and Matt Erby, the masterminds behind fellow Sydney venues, the Treehouse Hotel and ArtHouse Hotel. The delivery of Green Moustache was a collaboration between architect John Cochrane, interior designer Ruth Harris, and graphic designer Melanie Topham.
Behind Green Moustache’s foliage is Erin Martin. The resident horticulturalist of the Grounds of Alexandria is no stranger to Northpoint, as the chain is set to open their third restaurant in the tower’s Eat Street precinct in coming months.
The menu has been crafted by a team of Australian hospitality all-stars. The infusion of Australian with international cuisine is overseen by former Pilu, Merivale and Hotel Palisade chef and Green Moustache co-owner, David Maisey, alongside ex-Chin Chin alumni, Peter Fitzsimmons.
The cocktail list has been inspired by the botanical fitout. Julien Perrimond, former Gourmet Traveller Bar of the Year sommelier at Sydney’s Bambini Trust, has also pulled together an extensive wine list.
Whether it’s after-work drinks, a casual get-together or a corporate function, Green Moustache’s friendly, personalised service, locally-sourced menu, as well as its vibrant atmosphere make it North Sydney’s premiere destination.
