Steel Bar and Grill, Sydney

SKOPE Steel's the Show in Stylish Sydney Restaurant Kitchen

With space at a premium in cities across the globe, the way restaurant kitchens are designed is changing, with more establishments having their kitchens on show to diners. In the past, kitchen budgets were often cut in favour of dining and bar spaces, but with the trend towards “show” kitchens increasing, the aesthetics of such items as refrigeration and food service equipment are as important as the design of tables and chairs.

 

At Steel Bar and Grill, leading conceptual designer Michael McCann has joined forces with the Pony Dining team to create a dramatic wraparound balcony, bar and 180 seat restaurant. Located in the heart of Sydney, every aspect of the space is dramatic and awe-inspiring, not in the least the open kitchen, which has been kitted out with customised SKOPE products. Executive chef Damian Heads, who is a regular chef on Channel 10’s Ready, Steady, Cook and has worked throughout Europe, including at London’s famous Bank restaurant, says the SKOPE underbench fridges are an unassuming contributor to the sleek design aesthetic of Steel Bar and Grill.

"SKOPE fridges have clean lines, practical design and efficient use of space. In the bar, we had SKOPE design fridges with glass fronts and soft lighting to showcase the variety of wines on offer. The resulting colour from the illuminated bottles contributes to the warmth and character of the bar"
