The opening follows the successful launch of Storehouse Rushcutters Bay at the Eastern Suburb’s Vibe Hotel.

For an exceptional meal with a local twist at any time of day, Storehouse is the CBD’s new go-to dining destination, framed by bold navy walls, brass detailing, and Apparition Media’s hand-painted Australian flora murals.
