Hacienda Sydney

Sydney has a new Cuban themed bar, Hacienda which opened early August. The bar takes inspiration from the grand plantation architecture of Cuba along with modern vintage hotels of 1950’s Miami.

Hacienda Sydney

Hacienda is located in the Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour overlooking Sydney harbour and is a collaboration of Applejack Hospitality (owners of Bondi Hardware, The Butler and Della Hyde) and AccorHotels to transform the venue along with the food and beverage offering.
