Three Bottle Man is a celebration of Australian produce, with a menu chock a block of ingredients that are grown or produced on our sunny shores.
The all-day venue offers an alfresco laneway experience from one of Sydney’s best-known hotels, Sydney Harbour Marriott. Just metres from the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, the casual concept makes finding an authentic feed around the notoriously touristy area a breeze.
Each morning, a stream of hotel guests and locals stop by Three Bottle Man for that much-needed caffeine hit. For those lucky enough to stop for breakfast, options include organic barley porridge with grapes, crème fraiche and pear compote, and Petuna smoked salmon with 65°C eggs and arugula.
The Australian produce continues into the seasonal lunchtime menu, with featured combinations like pumpkin and ricotta gnocchi with pickled figs and dukkah, and turkey and brie sourdough with smashed avocado. Come the sun setting, sharing plates of charcuterie, cheese platters, and potato and beef cheek croquettes make the perfect accompaniment to an evening drink with work colleagues.
Speaking of drinks, once again, everything on Three Bottle Man’s wine and beer list, as well as the spirits used to create its ever-evolving speciality cocktails, is Australian-made. In line with its moniker, just three bottles are offered for each type of drink, be it a spirit, beer, cider or wine, making choosing your tipple that much easier. On the menu, you’ll find craft beers and ciders from Cricketers Arms and Dirty Granny, among others.
The range of spirits reflects the great diversity of Australian distilleries now in operation. Tasmanian McHenry classic dry gin, Black Gate aged rum from Mendooran in Central Western NSW, Starward Wine Cask single malt whisky distilled in Port Melbourne and Hippocampus vodka from West Perth, are just some of what’s on offer.
With such an extensive array of local products on offer, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more authentic Australian experience than at Three Bottle Man. Grab a coffee and a sanga and head down to the House – you’ll be soaking up the best of Sydney in no time.
