The venue has two backlit walls, adorned with steel rungs filled with Greek Ouzo, whisky, European liqueurs and Australian gin, designed by alpha’s CEO Arthur Balayannis and Executive Chef Peter Conistis.
Bar Manager, Irek Luty, has created an authentic, yet modern bar menu that features a wide selection of Greek spirits, a dedicated gin Garden and a tight list of nine cocktails.
In true Greek fashion, the ever-changing meze menu consists of a selection of gourmet dolmades, pastourmas, karpouzi and toursi. The menu also includes a number of classic dips for guests to graze on, including olives, taramosalata, tzatziki and melitzanosalata.
Located on the ground floor at 240 Castlereagh Street, baraki sits next to alpha which occupies a historic Victorian building adjacent to the Hellenic Club on Elizabeth St. The Hellenic Club, which opened in the 1950s is also a hub of Greek culture in Sydney.
