Grandmaster Recorders Details:

🍔 Food:
If you’re intrigued by the idea of Italian-Australian fusion, Grandmaster Recorders is your spot. The menu’s got everything from pasta to caviar to Wagyu steak. Mouth-watering desserts like gelato and tiramisu are also essential. You’ll find bites on the rooftop until around 11pm.

🍸 Drinks:
It should be noted that there’s a quality Espresso Martini on the restaurant menu. On the rooftop, cocktails are on tap (which could be good or bad), with a modest selection of beer and wine. There’s also Frozé on tap to go with those warm, summer sunsets.

🎶 Music:
The rooftop playlist is a surprisingly impeccable selection of hip hop, nu funk and r&b jams without a DJ in sight. If you visit SeventyOne, you’ll find live DJs playing disco and danceworthy hits to complement the alluring dancefloor.

Each outlet in the building oozes Hollywood cool, with minimalist and industrial design aesthetics. The crowd is approachable and laid back. You’ll find more party-centric patrons showing up for the weekend dancefloor.

📸 Photo Ops:
No one place stands out, but the golden curtains and extended brown sofas in SeventyOne have potential for being the venue’s signature backdrop.

😃 Happy Hour:
Drop in for “Apertivo Happy Hour” Mon-Fri from 4pm-6pm for discounted wine, snacks and beer. They also have a Weekend Happy Hour 12pm-3pm.
