Ananas new


We have to admit, we’re pretty hard to impress these days.  What with each new bar and restaurant opening in Sydney, bigger and better than the last, we’ve sure seen some fine fit-outs of late.  In fact, it’s hard not to become rather blase about it all.

Follow the cobblestones into old favourite The Argyle, and turn sharp right when you view the ‘Ananas’ sign lighting up those heel destroying stones.  Then, prepare to be wowed!  Ananas, which incidentally translates to ‘pineapple’, indeed possesses the ‘wow factor’.  It’s a glitzy and glamorous establishment, with a distinct french feel and decor celebrating that gorgeous fruit – the pineapple.

You first enter the bar, a decadent space of exposed brick and timber, with glistening bronze highlights, and lush greenery.  You may choose to sit on stools at high tables, settle back into comfy banquette seats with low tables, or take the communal table option.  Tables are adorned with a single red carnation and a candle and opulence takes centre stage.

Equally as impressive as the bar, the Brasserie features striking pineapple lamps – in fact the lighting is simply stunning.  Glossy baubles dazzle in the dim hue.

The menu is described as a twist on French Mediterranean classics and if you are an oyster fan, you have probably already noticed they have an oyster bar.  In a rather unique twist, their wine list is presented on an ipad – we like!


Also good to remember, this is a great late night dining option.
