Concrete Blonde

This new bar featured in the December issue of Australian Bartender.

33 Bayswater Road
Kings Cross, Sydney

Concrete Blonde is a new look restaurant and bar that’s making some big waves in Kings Cross and is boasting a sensational fit-out and food and drinks menu.

Patrick Dang is at the head of the kitchen having spent time at Fratelli Paridiso, Salt, MG Garage and the 2 Michelin starred Amber Restaurant (Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Hong Kong).


Backing up his prowess in the kitchen is a superb wine list and cocktail menu that’s sure to set your imagination flowing. Mix it up with a Charlie Chaplin; Hayman’s sloe gin, apricot brandy and lime, or a Jacque Rose; Gontier Calvados 2002, Massenez grenadine and lime.

If you’re after a glass of the good stuff then you’ll find two of Bartender‘s top tipples right next to each other: Philip Shaw’s ‘The Idiot’ Shiraz from Orange in NSW (at $59), and the Yarra Yering ‘Dry Red no. 2’ from the Yarra Valley in VIC (at $122). Both are crackers and are toned-down enough for food – on a wine note, the ‘Idiot’ is a great bargain to pick up off-premise if you have the chance.
