Forget the anchor, set sail for The Joey!

Nestled on Sydney’s idyllic northernmost tip, a beloved landmark has been reborn. The Barrenjoey Boatshed, a heritage-listed building steeped in history has embarked on a new chapter, transforming into “The Joey”, offering a relaxed waterfront dining experience with breathtaking views.

The Joey stays true to its heritage, proudly adopting the original name used since 1947. Upon arrival, guests are greeted by the familiar wooden exterior, now lovingly restored, and lush gardens that set the stage for a relaxed waterfront dining experience.

The heart of the venue lies in the meticulously designed Dining Room & Bar. The grand lava stone bar, meticulously sourced from France, takes centre stage, while soft lighting and curvaceous wooden tables create a warm and inviting ambience. Iconic Case Study Chairs, renowned for their mid-century modern design, add a touch of timeless elegance.

Beyond the refined dining space, “The Joey” offers a more casual option at “The Jetty Bar.” Here, guests can bask in the sunshine under classic white umbrellas and navy awnings, enjoying a relaxed menu and refreshing beverages while taking in the stunning water views.

Whether seeking a special occasion venue or a regular “go-to” spot, “The Joey” caters to all. The menu boasts an elegant focus on fresh seafood, offering both a la carte and set menu options. Diners can indulge in starters like Sydney Rock Oysters and Kingfish Crudo, or share small plates like Pepita pumpkin hummus and Stracciatella with watermelon and heirloom tomatoes.

For mains, the menu features mouthwatering options like Scotch Fillet with peppercorn and brandy sauce, alongside tempting share plates such as Tarragon Butter Market Fish and Garlic Butter Lobster Frites.

The bar team has crafted a remarkable cocktail list, featuring unique creations like “The Maritime Martini” infused with local botanicals and adorned with sea grapes, alongside Australian takes on classic cocktails like the “Aussie 75.” The extensive drinks menu also showcases a diverse selection of locally produced spirits, imported wines, and beers.

Accessible by car, boat, or even seaplane, “The Joey” promises a truly unforgettable experience. With its stunning location, elegant yet relaxed atmosphere, and focus on fresh, seasonal cuisine, it’s poised to become a new favourite amongst Sydney’s discerning diners.
