Earlier this year, a Palm Spring-style bar opened on the roof of one of Sydney’s hippest breweries.
Perched atop the tap room in Philter Brewing’s warehouse, Marrickville Springs is a pastel-colored oasis with a white cinder block cocktail bar, custom neon lighting, and a 10-meter retractable roof that makes the space usable all year round.

Inspired by the American resort town of Palm Springs, the venue is one of the premier rooftops of the Midwest, an area more accustomed to grungy dive bars and live music clubs.
Philter co-founder Stefan Constantoulas describes his latest venture as an “oasis in the middle of town” where drinkers can enjoy a menu that includes the brewery’s award-winning XPA, classic cocktails and a polarizing craft beer slushie.
“If you think of Palm Springs as an oasis in the middle of the desert, Marrickville Springs is like an oasis in the middle of the city,” Mr. Constantoulas said. Large format sheet.
The walls are covered with pastel tiles and a mural by local artist Mielo, while potted plants and white wood seating make up the bulk of the decor.

Guests can also stock up on vintage Australian snacks, with a menu of retro classics such as shrimp cocktails and ’90s-style cheese platters.
The rooftop, which can accommodate up to 60 people, was scheduled to open in early spring, but the second wave of Covid in Sydney that plunged the city into grueling 15-week lockdown has put plans on hold.
