We had the opportunity to attend the launch of ‘Made By The Hill’ an six million dollar social space which has been renovated in the Rooty Hill RSL, designed by TomMarkHenry (who were those responsible for Darlo Country Club).
We don’t always have the chance to venture out west, and we were glad we did. Enter into the RSL, this large new space has a range of different areas to make yourselves comfortable, booths, dining tables, bar tables and casual areas, to lounge about, this certainly is a great space to mingle and enjoy a few drinks. The styling is on trend, marble, copper and dull pink and green tones. There are also DJ booths set up making the venue an ideal night spot to get your part on.
If you are after a bite to eat there are some great options including Italian, with some tasty pizzas on offer. If you are a burger fiend, the proven burgers from Chur Burger are also on offer. Great to line the stomach before or after a few bevvies.
The bar is certainly well decked out. A range of cocktails that are not only delicious, but beautiful, some even a visual masterpiece with dry ice! We had a few Espresso Martini’s to kick off the evening as well as a Dragonfruit and Strawberry sour (this was a mocktail as sadly one of us drove).
If you’re here for a party, why not order a Jug of red or white sangria, spiced tea or champagne cocktails, certainly a great sharing option. Bar tenders can also make classic cockails upon request. With dedicated bar staff pumping out the cocktails with little wait time, despite the busy venue, so that is certainly impressive.
If cocktail aren’t your thing, they have a good range of wines, spirits, and an even better range of Whiskeys. With some great single malts including Macallan with age statements, Glenfiddich 18yr, Balvenie 21 year just to name a few, some nice Japanese options including Hibiki and Yamazaki and they also have a decent range of American whisky. The pricing is reasonable too.
