Bayswater Road, Kings Cross is now home to New Hampton, a sophisticated new bar located on the ground floor of the building that once housed the famous Hampton Court Hotel, one of Sydney’s grand hotels of yesteryear.
New Hampton, with its rustic appearance and air of sophistication, opened its doors in March, bringing a new vibe to the area, which continues to transform. Having two separate bar areas, a nightclub, pokies room plus separate smoking area, there’s plenty of space to move around. Solid timber bars, exposed wooden beams and handcrafted tiles set into the concrete flooring all create an intimate and warm atmosphere.
The fine dining restaurant, HARVEST @ New Hampton, has a range of modern Australian dishes with a twist of French flair. The menu includes a Chargrilled Beef Sirloin and Fillet on the bone, a dish unique to the venue. For those wanting a taste of everything Harvest has to offer, there is also a degustation menu that combines all of the chef’s signature dishes.
Head Chef, Ben Palmer, has designed the menu around familiar themes and plenty of flavour. Ben said “I’ve created a menu for a relaxed dining experience. It is well refined and not overly complex and uses only the freshest seasonal Australia produce on offer”.
New Hampton serves over twenty wines by the glass, featuring wines from Australia, France, Italy, New Zealand and the United States. The cocktail menu is a mixture of classic cocktails and some new creations, including the Hampton Ice Tea, Chocolate Sazerac and Belvedere Caramel Martini.
“A combination of high energy with our signature relaxed vibe is what makes us truly unique,” said New Hampton owner, Kieran Coleman.=
