Cocktail Bar
Cocktails, Sunsets & Ocean View.
Perched on top of Henley House sits West, our laidback retro rooftop bar.
A buzzing, gathering spot for great tunes, seasonal cocktails, local beer & wine, and bar snacks designed to drink with.
We also have an extensive spirits selection with a focus on gin.
Take a seat indoors at our beautiful walnut timber bar or sink into one of our emerald green velvet booths. Or you can take a step outside to our rooftop terrace to take in the ocean air - day or night, in the sunshine on under the stars.

    Loved the drinks - chips were fab too! The girl we spoke to behind the bar was lovely (very busy though bless her). It was lovely weather so the rooftop was perfect :)

    Came in for a friend’s 18th and it was amazing. Atmosphere was great and the bartender’s service was outstanding. Very accommodating for specific requests and very friendly. Highly recommend this place. We’ll be back x

    We came as a group of 4 and were the only people there, the staff started a bonfire outside at 2pm and used a heap of cardboard which smoked us out and we had to move inside, unsure why a fire was being stated at that time as it was super sunny and pleasant outside. We moved inside and had to ask for the music to be turned down as we couldn’t hear each other (still the only people there) we sat in a booth and found the booth to be dirty with flakes salt and dust all over the cushions. We ordered a cheese board which was good, the staff were friendly and helpful.

    For only 2 bartenders working what a pair. Drinks were flowing and you wouldn’t have even noticed it was just 1 bartender and another serving. Only Rated food 1 as I didn’t eat any

    Indoor with the doors closed as it had rained earlier (not during our visit), there were two booths with one group of very loud girls. The DJ was great but the louder he got the louder they got.

    We went for the cocktails and the beach atmosphere. Cocktails were super disappointing, and we couldn’t see the water from where we were sitting. Staff were friendly but did not seem too knowledgeable. We booked an outside table/booth and it was occupied when we arrived, however the staff moved the occupants and quickly cleaned for us which was good. Probably wouldn’t bother going there again though. Mostly because of the cocktails.

    They did not tell us that they no longer provided any food until we had sat down and asked for a menu. They didn't even offer packets of chips or nuts. The website still showed that they had food at the time of booking. The outdoor seating is looking old and shabby and not particularly clean. I understand covid 19 has caused difficulties for many places but they should at the very least update their sites. If they want people to return and the bar to stay open they need to make some effort. I felt like we were lured there under false presences, as they suggested we go to Melt or Salt (their sister offerings) if we wanted food.

    The bar space and fit out is great. Not a great experience though. I booked two weeks In advance for drinks at 5pm, these were confirmed the day before, but then the morning of, was called to say they had made an error and we could only stay for an hour. We we told at least 4 or 5 times by different staff throughout our sitting that we would be required to leave at 6pm, without apology. All in all felt unwelcome and that we were an inconvenience.

    Sadly, there was absolutely no vibe at all. The place was messy, cushions had fallen over, umbrella just laying on the floor, bits of wood around. The device was pretty dismal too. It was only us and another group in there and it seemed as though they were run off their feet. Forgot water glasses, asked what table we were sitting at (only one other group). No food available. Sadly we will not ever go back.

    Spent an afternoon at West for the Cellar Door event. KIS gin tasting, cocktails & small choice of eats. Appeared very busy which might explain delivery of food on the slow side. Apologetic when queried. Friendly staff. Would attend again in the warmer months.

    I booked a table for our wedding anniversary… planned on cocktails and sliders (as per online menu). When we arrived, I asked if the kitchen was open because we hadn’t eaten yet - the staff mumbled something and let us choose a table. When we went to order were told they only have chips - no explanation. Very disappointed and hungry!! On the upside, the cocktail I had was very good and the ambiance once the sun started to set was lovely but we had to leave after one drink to find food elsewhere. Update your online menu guys!!

    Friendly staff, great location and set up, cocktails were delicious but a treat at $18 each, be patient with serving time as most patrons are ordering drinks that take a decent amount of time to make. Definitely a nice spot for a date or catch up with friends.
