Welcome Back Bar Patrón! Our Favourite Harbourside Mexican Eatery Returns After A Three Year Hiatus

Eat, Sydney / 26 April 2022

Bar Patrón will finally reopen its doors this month with an all-new food and drinks menu in tow, but fear not, the iconic $100 Millionaire’s Margarita will remain on the menu.

With Sydney life back to a new kind of normal, and new venue openings on the rise, you’d forgive us for failing to remember that there are still a handful of Sydney institutions that are yet to emerge from the chrysalis of the pandemic. The latest iconic venue to announce their grand return to the Sydney dining scene is our favourite, casually chic, harbourside restaurant and bar – Bar Patrón, set to reopen Wednesday 27th April. 

Loyal fans can once again enjoy an elevated Mexican restaurant experience while soaking up Sydney’s best harbourside views from the elegant dining room and window-side marble bar, offering magnificent views of the Harbour Bridge and Circular Quay. 

The bar, which is the world’s only dining and drinks destination to partner with Patrón Tequila in this way, heroes the iconic Patrón Tequila, which is infused throughout every Margarita and cocktail on the drinks list. 

If like us, post-pandemia has you making up for lost time, living your best boujee life, you’ll be thrilled to hear Bar Patrón’s signature $100 Millionaire’s Margarita will be making a long-awaited return. This top-tier Margarita is custom-made table-side and features Patrón Gran Burdeos, Remy Martin Louis XIII Cognac, Grand Marnier Cuvée Du Cent Cinquantenaire, is garnished with gold leaf and served with a theatrical flourish. 

If you’re feeling extra, well, extra you can experiment with flights of three tequilas including limited-edition Patrón Tequila that cannot be found anywhere else, or trade-up to ultra-rare varieties, including En Lalique Serie 1 and En Lalique Serie 2, which each cost $990 a glass.

The new food and drinks menu’s have been designed to pay homage to the festivity of the Mexican dining experience. Inspiring the Bar Patrón kitchen team with his unique approach to quintessential Mexican cuisine is Pacific Concepts Group’s new Executive Chef, Mexican national Manuel Diaz.

Diaz brings to the table a wealth of experience which has been meticulously poured into the new menu. For entrées expect fresh flavours and seafood such as Scallop Ceviche, Tuna Ensalada and Octopus Huarache. House-pressed tortillas become hand-held tacos that are plump with light, flavour-packed fillings, including Soft Shell Crab, Chicken with Black Mole and Carnitas Eggplant, all paired with house-made sauces and salsas. The show stopping mains include the pinnacle of waterside dining – Lobster al Patrón, served with a creamy tequila sauce. 

Bar Patrón is all set to reopen its doors on Wednesday 27th April. Make your booking here.
