When it comes to drinks, diners are spoilt for choice, with a carefully curated selection of renowned Rieslings, Rosés and Champagnes that have mostly been sourced from small producers and family owned wineries.

For those who prefer a cocktail, Patina’s elegant cocktail menu offers a selection of the finest distilled spirits and mixers. Must-try is the heavenly ‘Honey Bee’ – a sweet Havana Club 3yo rum, topped with honey, lemon juice and leaves of mint.

Tip - Rock up early for pre-dinner drinks on the elegant garden furniture with a front row view of the Story Bridge. Entrees are available to share here and enjoy with a cocktail, wine or beer.

Good to know - Patina is named after the iconic copper dome atop of Customs House which over time has oxidised to develop its distinct green colour.
