Simon Tilley and Nick Wills, owners of emerging hospitality group Tilley and Wills (Greenwood Hotel, Verandah Bar, Social at Verandah) celebrated the launch of a brand- new Verandah Bar in Sydney’s Martin Place.

The newly redeveloped Verandah Bar hosted guests that included photographer Marnie Haddad, Archibald Prize Finalist Dee Smart, Stylist Romy Frydman, Jeff Lack and model Jade Jeffries who were treated to an incredible array of food and beverage offerings.

An epic grazing table kept guests satisfied upon arrival, with Cameron Pascoe curating a champagne bar, oyster station and Tanqueray gin pop-up ensuring never an empty drink was in hand.

Executive Chef Brad Sloane, Australian Hotels Association NSW Chef of the Year for 2013, ensured a tantalising food service that included dukkha spice lamb skewers, field mushroom and pine nut arancini, wagyu beef sliders and sweet corn fritter tartlets.

Alice Quiddington was on the decks setting the mood for the evening, with Universal Music’s Jordie Ireland keeping the vibes high late into the night.
