Sydney, it’s time to get out again and enjoy new waterfront Mexican-inspired venue Tequila Daisy at Barangaroo

Tequila Daisy at Barangaroo

It’s warming up, the days are longer and we’re all starting to come out of hibernation after the Sydney lockdown, so what better timing for Tequila Daisy to officially open its doors to Sydneysiders looking for some harbourside fun and a mouth-watering Mexican menu, to boot! Oh, and of course there is a very long (and impressive) drinks menu to accompany the bar and food menu. Tequila Daisy was originally due to open in August, but due to the stay-at-home orders, the launch was delayed until October, giving customers a little teaser during the lockdown with a takeaway only menu. 

However, last night saw the launch of the restaurant’s terrace dining, with ‘good times’ back in full swing. There was music, laughter, incredibly tasty shared plates and frozen watermelon margaritas that will have you coming back for more. Yes, we are back in business, Sydney! 

Owners of Tequila Daisy – husband and wife duo Rebecca Lines and Hamish Ingham – said they were excited to be able to officially welcome diners into the venue to enjoy the full terrace and bar dining experience. 

“Our Bar Taqueria takeaway was a great way to introduce Tequila Daisy to Sydney, but the full experience is all about sitting around a table with friends and feasting on fresh Mexican flavours with a cocktail in hand,” said Hamish. 

“We’ve created a long drinks list that will work regardless of if you’re enjoying a quick beer or settling in for an afternoon of margaritas,” added  Rebecca. 

The drink list features more than 100 tequila and mezcals available by the glass, cocktails including the namesake Tequila Daisy, and a selection of beer and wine to suit all tastes.

“We’ve really seen Barangaroo’s clientele evolve over the last few years so we wanted to mix things up and have some fun with a new concept that would work for everyone!”

Designed by Luchetti Krelle, this stunning waterfront space has been transformed into a bright and bustling 200-seat eatery that is primed for good times. Colourful Mexican tones of red, yellow and blue have been incorporated, while the extensive outdoor terrace exudes a vibe of chilled poolside meets Mexican fiesta, with its bright window decals, pastel blue picnic tables and vibrant yellow umbrellas and chairs. It just screams summer and lots of fun! 

Hamish, who is also the executive chef said Tequila Daisy’s new menu takes a fresh Australian twist on the diverse cuisine that hails from Mexico, with each dish jam-packed with colourful, rich flavours from the region, lightened by the duo’s fresh approach to food and drink and deep respect for Australia’s best produce. 

Diners can also expect an array of fun daily specials, from $14 Margarita Mondays, $6 Taco Tuesdays, a daily happy hour (or La Hora Feliz!), boozy bottomless lunches every weekend and a ‘hospo high five’ – a 10% discount all day, every day to give back to those in the hospitality industry after what has been a challenging 18 months.

For those looking for a quick fix or grabbing a bite to eat at the Barangaroo foreshore, Tequila Daisy continues to serve takeaway tacos and drinks from its Bar Taqueria.
