The bar was designed to provide a food, wine, and service experience that is equal parts relaxed and refined. Taking inspiration from the French word for “workshop” or “studio”, Atelier presents a tidy and carefully-crafted offering, with a focus on premium Australian and international wines in a luxe and intimate setting. Aiming to offer a relaxed experience championing quality produce and European flavours, Atelier’s menu highlights include a lamb cigar with housemade goat’s cheese and baba ganoush, a Moreton Bay bug ravioli with parsnip in a preserved lemon bisque, and a rhubarb and lavender mille-feuille.
It is not all about the grape at this contemporary brasserie, though; there is also a grown-up selection of cocktails on offer. Guests can enjoy the Lilywhacker with Hennessy, Antica Formula vermouth, Joseph Cartron orange curacao, and chocolate bitters. Another popular option is In Lust We Trust, with Beefeater strawberry gin, Joseph Cartron elderflower, sparkling, tonic water, and dehydrated flowers for garnish.
Owner Charlotte Barakat is no stranger to hospitality. Her family has owned and operated Italian institution, Gino’s, for almost 40 years in Hamilton. Set to be a staple for residents of the booming King Street precinct and beyond, Atelier is the perfect place to spend a lunch, afternoon, or evening in an intimate contemporary setting.
