Serving beautiful food and cocktails to beautiful people, Pelicano is the best place to see-and-be-seen in Sydney’s Double Bay suburb.

Drawing inspiration from their waterside location in Double Bay, Pelicano’s theme is one of nautical, beach house bliss. The main restaurant and curved copper bar are located underground, while the outdoor sunny blue-and-white terrace above is the perfect place from which to watch the sunset and sip a couple of glasses of chilled wine. Even the wait staff are dressed as if they just stepped off a yacht, in starched white shorts, deck shoes and striped sailor tops. But don’t assume that this adds up to anything but a classy establishment – Pelicano has a strict dress code and is filled with some of Sydney’s most beautiful elite each and every evening.

Pelicano’s restaurant is headed-up by a world-renowned chef, and it shows in dishes such as the sumac baked salmon, porcini & truffle arancini and the Bulgogi glazed lamb cutlets. But despite the culinary creativeness emanating from the kitchen, many people flock to Pelicano to drink – whether it be from the impressive wine list or by bottle service from the premium spirits menu. The selection of signature cocktails doesn’t disappoint either, each drink documented on the menu by the shape of their glass and their flavour profile (sour, sweet, spicy, strong or smooth). A few of our favourites include the Wild Agave (mezcal, fig jam, pineapple juice, lime juice and rosemary), the Punch & Circumstance (peanut butter-washed rum, soy milk, banana liqueur and cane syrup) and the Little Bird (black pepper-infused tequila, French herbal liqueur, cucumber juice, lemon juice and gomme syrup), all best served with a backdrop of smooth beats from the resident DJs. Credit Photo:
