There’s a new kid in town in the form of Babylon Newcastle. Located on King Street, the high-class whisky bar themed restaurant is ready to bring style back to the Hunter. Manager Philip Elsley said the idea for the bar came from the building itself, “We think it is one of the nicest venues in Newcastle and feel extremely lucky to have it. We’ve gone for a 1920's theme as it really matches the venue,” he said.
Philip said that there is a great balance of food, drinks and atmosphere, “We wanted to make it approachable to everyone by offering something in every bodies taste and budget,” he said. “We are two local families who enjoy quality food and drinks, and love the social aspect of sharing those with family and friends”. The menu has a modern European and Australian feel to it and is based around small and large share options with meats and produce sourced as locally as possible.
There is also a large range of whiskies from across the globe with something to cater for every taste and budget. Philip said there no weak points in their drink offerings with the whiskey selection matched by an amazing array of wine, cocktails and craft beers.
Babylon Newcastle is the ideal place for a social function from small casual gatherings to large private functions of over 200 people, with the owners on hand everyday to provide superior service with a personal touch.
