Hello Gorgeous is setting up shop on Chester Street, and she’s dressed to impress with an irresistible menu, handpicked wine list, stunning decor, and sprawling deck ready to share with friends at the end of January.
Owned by Justinn De Beer, Hello Gorgeous is Newstead’s latest multi-level bar for after-work drinks, lively evenings, and lazy afternoons. Devised to be a casual but sophisticated hotspot, De Beer says Hello Gorgeous is there “for everyone to just relax, enjoy great food and wine, and have fun.”
Out the front, a sun-soaked deck featuring tropical plants and bar tables welcomes visitors and provides the perfect spot to sip a spritz before embarking indoors.
Guests can expect more than gorgeous, with interiors by Bea Berry Designs creating an air of luxe sophistication, while providing plenty of bougie teal banquettes to park one’s derriere. Curved arches, a bar clad in pastel pink tiling, and striking gold accents make for a stylish but welcoming addition to the bustling suburb.
Head Chef Matthew Wrench is delivering a menu that makes choosing difficult, bringing his experience from the sky and the sea (Eleven Rooftop Bar and Macleay Island respectively) to the streets of Newstead. Diners can expect bold flavours accentuated with delicate premium ingredients across menu sections including raw, from the garden, fish and crustacean, meat, share boards, and sweets.
Highlights include stellar salads like pan-seared cuttlefish with pomegranate, cherry tomato, watercress, and a chilli and lime emulsion, and sesame-crusted tuna sliders with semi-dehydrated heirloom tomato, seaweed remoulade, and watercress – perfect for pairing with any of the bar’s 10 sparkling wine options.
More substantial options for ladies who lunch include Milly Hill lamb cutlets with harissa, Hasselback potato, pumpkin purée, caramelised shallot, mint oil and jus, while luxurious sides like roasted bone marrow with sourdough crisps will have guests supping between courses.
With over 40 drops on offer as well as sparkling and Champagne, cocktails will rotate seasonally and be more worthy of the Instagram feed! To keep the afternoon rolling, Hello Gorgeous will offer a range of expertly crafted “temperant” low-alcohol cocktails, designed to taste great but be friendlier on the bank card (and the next-day headache).
For those who need an excuse to party, Hello Gorgeous has a private dining room to accommodate up to 20, or a function space with room for 80 of your nearest and dearest. A blank canvas ready to be customised, Hello Gorgeous’ functions space is a great inner-city option for a fully customised event.
Open Monday-Friday from 4pm, and from midday on weekends, Hello Gorgeous’ kitchen will be plating up deliciousness until 10pm nightly. With a DJ every weekend, Hello Gorgeous is positioned to become a favourite for mid-week munching, as well as letting loose on the weekend. With its sophisticated multi-level design, irresistible menu, and impressive bar offering, Hello Gorgeous is a little bit fancy, and loves a good time – just like you.
