I attended the launch of The Canopy, the Sheaf’s newest space to grace Double Bay’s bar scene last night; Located in the upper level of the recently renovated complex.This upper venue space has been transformed into a botanical bar inspired by the beauty found in nature. I must say I thought the décor was very inviting.
In attendance were 100 VIP, media and celebrities descending on the botanical, open air space. Guests including The Bachelor star Michael Turnbull, television presenters Scott Tweedie and Candice Dixon, singer Casey Burgess, socialite Christian Wilkins and fashion icon Josh Flinn who all enjoyed signature beverages including premium gin, French champagne and cocktails with smooth ambient tunes provided by Australian DJ sensation Alice Q.
The Canopy features neutral tones and natural colours; green palms and floral highlights, bringing the outside in to bring alive this horticultural-inspired bar. The space offers an intimate and premium experience, adding another layer to The Sheaf’s main bar below.
The beverage menu stays true to the atmosphere with gin, champagne and garden- inspired cocktails as the bar’s staples. Unique to the bar is The Sapphire Infusion, a completely customizable Gin & Tonic carafe for two, including your own choice of cucumber, lemon, lime, orange or pink grapefruit infused with Bombay Sapphire and Capri Dry Tonic, topped with your pick of seasonal dried herbs and fresh fruits.
The Canopy opens to the public from today, Friday 13th November 2015.
