2 levels of hidden gardens, alfresco drinking and dining, bookable daybeds and DJs.
Pergola Paddington is a large and vibrant alfresco garden and rooftop, with four restaurants, two bars and capacity for 850 guests. Spread over two levels, with restaurants and picninc style benches on the ground floor, and a lovely rooftop terrace one floor up.
Up here you find more benches, but also seven giant daybeds with capacity for up to 15 people. Both daybeds and regular seatings can be booked in advanced. Or you just show up and try your luck.
The food is served kind of market style, where you walk up to one of four counters and get what you want. Or nowadays, order from your mobile. The 2021 season you can choose from Filth&Co (burgers), Salt Shed (bbq), Niji Kitchen (Japanese) and Thunderbird (chicken wings, burgers, tenders).
Drinks work in the same way, get your phone and make your choise of beer, wine, sparkles, seasonal or classic cocktails.
The décor of the terrace is natural and smooth, yet urban and sophisticated. And truly beautiful, so it is no surprise it has been branded one of the most Instagramable spots in Paddington.
The atmosphere is lively and tuned in for good times, with the large, open space and people (usually) moving around to grab more drinks and food. During weekends, live DJs visit to set the tone one level higher.
