Riley St Garage, a 150-seater modern Japanese restaurant inspired by New York’s Meatpacking District, opened in 2013, bringing 1930s glamour to Woolloomooloo. Originally Australia’s first full service garage, the building was renovated and re-imagined, accentuating its art deco design into a grand bar and restaurant. The venue is distinguished by its enormous brass island bar, proudly taking centre-stage in the large industrial space. Here our guests can soak up the restaurant’s busy yet relaxed atmosphere. We like to think of it as a place for people who would rather eat in a bar, than drink in a restaurant.

Riley St Garage serves a diverse share concept menu, anchored by an oyster bar and raw food menu. The smoky soy truffle oysters are a favourite to start, progressing from small to large share plates. Crispy pork knuckle is a local favourite and make sure to ask your mechanic about our dessert platters.

It’s a treat for all, from solo diners chasing that elusive cocktail or a late-night snack, to large groups looking for a full degustation experience complemented by a vast wine selection.
