Lotus Dumpling Bar opens at The Galeries
The team behind the Lotus Dumpling Walsh Bay have officially launched in Sydney’s CBD with the opening of Lotus Galeries.
Located on level one of The Galeries on George Street, the new venue contrasts to the industrial-chic Walsh Bay site with a pared-back white-on-blue palette and floor to ceiling windows that fill the venue with sunlight by day, and the neon lights on George Street by night.
Designed by Paul Papadopoulos and Kathryn Ashley of DS17, the 270 seater space features Fibonacci stone surfaces, earthy tactile ceramics and textiles that have been specifically chosen to complement the venue’s food offering.
The menu boasts more seafood-centric options compared to the Walsh Bay site, and has also introduces LoTea, a Chinese tradition whereby tea is served with a light meal in the afternoon. The Oriental high tea concept will showcase Lotus's own tea brand and creative delicacies such as handmade dumplings, artisan chocolates and Asian-inspired sweet treats.
The venue is split by a modernist atrium that divides two full private dining rooms and four semi-private spaces, welcoming a range of events from standing receptions to sit-down events.
