About Us

Estate - Taking inspiration from our picturesque beachy location and paying homage to the lively seaside bars and bistros of America’s east coast, Estate offers simple, tasty seafood dishes and incredible cocktails within a relaxed, casual luxe atmosphere. A local favourite for a quick drink, laid-back dinner or lively celebration, Estate is the perfect spot for our guests to gather with friends, whether they're primed for a big night out or they're fresh off the beach.

Shutters - Our award-winning design leans on a vibrant Miami feel letting the sun and salty air in offering a light filled space to enjoy with the family. The perfect place to relax and look out onto Coogee Beach, our three separate offerings within Shutters – the Restaurant, the Bar and the Lounge makes this all-day venue a place where our guests can enjoy their next dining experience or event.
