Celebrity chef and author Michael Moore has opened a new restaurant to replace his Summit restaurant atop the iconic Australia Square. Rumours have been circulating for several weeks that major changes were afoot for the famous venue with Moore having confirmed last month that the Summit will close on September 8th.

Though housed in a space familiar to most Sydneysiders, O Bar and Dining will be completely unlike its predecessor. The vast circular space with 360 degree views will offer a new multi-layered bar and dining experience: featuring a central lobby bar, lower level lounge bar, restaurant and private dining room, it will offer something for everyone. The simple, plush interiors match the palette of chocolate browns, silvers and graphites.

At a time when many Sydney restaurateurs are struggling or even closing up shop, Moore’s re-creation of the venue might seem daring. However Moore says it was necessary to ensure long-term success.

“O Bar and Dining represents an exciting new chapter for this venue and for the dining scene in Sydney,” says Moore. “Although the Summit had been a fixture of the local dining scene for many years, this re-birth is an essential move forward to meet the emerging trends of the moment.

“The launch of O Bar and Dining represents a complete redesign and the creation of new bar and dining options under one roof. Even for those who were Summit regulars, this will be an entirely new venue to experience.”
