Helm Bar is one of those spots where you go to catch up with mates, co-workers for a sundowner after work and on the weekends, thanks to its convenient waterfront location at Darling Harbour. If you venture upstairs at Helm Bar, you will find a bar/restaurant which plays up its nautical theme and with plenty of outdoor and indoor seating spaces. This is great for basking in the fresh sea breeze and sunshine, like the one sunny afternoon I visited for lunch with my co-workers. Or head downstairs to their “backyard oasis” perfect for holding functions close by the water with a dedicated bar.
There are daily specials to cater for any budgets and look out for their competitions. This month, its all about fashion and promoting a major sponsor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Tempus Two Wines.
If you think this place is just a pub, with pub like meals – you will be in for a surprise. The menu at Helm Bar already boasts a range of delicious gourmet pizzas which I had for lunch. The spicy chorizo sausage tasted just like my parents use to make, with a tasty combination of roasted capsicum, caramelised onion, goats cheese and olive tapenade. My co-workers went for their pasta dishes, seafood dishes (though if you have time – check out their signature Seafood Sharing Stand for two) and delicious healthy salads.
Helm Bar offers great daily deals: $13 chicken schniddy Mondays, $10 steak Tuesdays, Fish & Chips Wednesday with a glass of house beer, wine or sparkling from $13, $12 pizza lovers Thursday.
