It’s been a while between drinks, but this summer will mark the anticipated return of Sorrento’s Continental.
You’ve no doubt heard the beachside stalwart has been undergoing some work, and to say it’s had a fresh lick of paint would be an understatement. Behind the hefty re-up is renowned publican Craig Shearer (The Terminus along with several interstate venues) while none other than Scott Pickett will lead the food and beverage offering.
The Conti’s crown jewel will be known as Audrey’s, the powerhouse venue’s signature restaurant. If we’re continuing with this crown analogy, though, this thing is encrusted with precious stones and metals from top to bottom.
Complementing Audrey’s is a public bar, a sizeable beer garden, a conservatory, pool-side food and booze, a late-night venue, as well as a sunset roof deck open for private bookings—sweeping vistas of the bay of course come standard.
Should you want to park up for the evening, the redeveloped 145yo Conti will include a luxury 108-room hotel.
The Conti, and its extensive list of new offerings, is set to begin opening progressively between December this year and June next.
