The Boathouse Group is paying homage to Palm Beach, its original birthplace celebrating a century of history and hospitality at the iconic and very beautiful Barrenjoey House.
Marking 100 years of Barrenjoey House this October, The Boathouse Group (TBG) is thrilled to commemorate the cherished landmark that has welcomed countless guests and provides a taste of history and elegance.
Purchased by TBG in 2018, Barrenjoey House is now home to a beautiful restaurant, bar and guest home with seven rooms but has seen many faces pass through since it was originally built in 1923 for the Resch family. A line up of Sydney’s top chefs have also headed up the kitchen, from Neil Perry, Darren Simpson, Peter Kuruvita and John Vanderveer.
Antony Jones, TBG CEO said, “This milestone is a testament to Palm Beach’s enduring charm and the quality of service that has filtered through Barrenjoey House. We’re so proud to be the current operators of this great venue, that I’m very much a regular of and I look forward to celebrating over October with locals and visitors alike with our special menu and offerings.”
Barrenjoey House will be offering a luxe set menu for the rest of October which includes caviar bumps on arrival, lobster cocktail, steak frites and petit fours. As an alternate, Fruits de Mer for two will also be available as well as bottles of Moet & Chandon NV Champagne to toast in celebration; all priced at $100.
In other local exciting dining news, TBG has also unveiled Casa, an eclectic Italian pop-up restaurant and bar within its existing Palm Beach homewares store. Two minutes down the road from Barrenjoey House, and just in time for spring, Casa, an Italian-inspired restaurant and bar has popped up in the existing homewares store for the warmer months.
Offering lunch and dinner, the pop up is made for those walking straight off the beach with a casual, family-friendly and fun vibe. The menu includes a selection of antipasto plates, pizzas (including takeaway) and classic Italian cocktails. Cue the Aperol Spritz!
Jones adds, “Casa is a great addition to Palm Beach, and something locals will absolutely love. Casa means ‘home or house’ and that’s exactly what we’ve created, a coastal home for Sydneysiders to enjoy a relaxed meal after a day at the beach. Something my family is very much looking forward to as we roll into summer.”
