The Potting Shed, Alexandria

From the people behind The Grounds of Alexandria comes the industrial suburb's new watering hole. Introducing: The Potting Shed.

“Alexandria has been thirsty for a place to gather,” says Tyson Rowsell, operations manager at The Grounds of Alexandria. He’s not wrong. Artisan foods, warehouse sales and more brunch places than you could eat through in a Sunday, sure. But bars? Well, it’s been lacking.

Not anymore. The Potting Shed has just opened and judging by first impressions, it’ll be Alexandria’s answer to a local watering hole. It’s the long awaited next stage of The Ground’s culinary expansion and is located just next door.

It has everything you’d expect with a name like The Potting Shed: terracotta pots, hanging plants and a vaguely greenhouse feel if their teaser photos on Facebook are anything to go by. The outdoor garden bar (designed by Acme&Co) gives it a touch of “rambling nostalgia”.

Head Chef Kahlil Rogers-Perazzo brings his vast experience at some of Sydney’s best (Paramount, Hugo’s, Tetsuya’s, Balzac, Quay and Pilu) to whip up a produce-driven menu. They’ve listened to Sydney diners and gone with share plates on the menu, which will set you back $12-$26. In the drinks cabinet are craft beers and boutique wines and there’s deft hands mixing cocktails behind the bar.

Since The Grounds opened in 2012, they’ve been largely responsible for transforming the once empty stomping grounds of Alexandria into a mecca for brunch-loving Sydneysiders.

Now they’re working their way into our cocktail-loving hearts as well. Bless.
