101 George St Pops Up in The Rocks
Swillhouse is taking over 101 George Street, the site of the old Phillip’s Foote, a beautiful historic establishment in The Rocks, with a plan to turn it into a Euro wine bar. The site is unique, ramshackle, charming.
101 George Street is in one of Australia’s earliest surviving commercial buildings. The building once housed a sailors’ bar, custom’s agent, and stable before standing derelict until the early 1970s when the Dredge family took it over and established Phillip's Foote, a classic bar and steak house.
Located opposite the MCA on George St, it comprises a warren of different spaces, cobblestoned laneways, outdoor dining rooms, and classic pub vibes. It’s gnarly and beautiful, rough and sophisticated... A beautiful collision.
Swillhouse are going to keep the bustly charm and loose atmosphere of the current space, and update the offering to something contemporary, delicious, and cool.
