One of Redfern’s most beloved eateries, Ron’s Upstairs, will close its doors after five years of feeding Sydneysiders with rotisserie-starring Mediterranean fare and a hugely agreeable drinks list amid a haven of late-70s kitsch.
The team behind Ron’s Upstairs has unceremoniously broken the news via Instagram with a message saying: “Hi All. The time has come to close the doors to Ron’s Upstairs. We say this with a heavy heart that our last service will be Saturday 7 May. We want to take this opportunity to thank all that have come through the doors and hopefully we’ll get to see your faces one last time. Cheers.”
When we know more about the future of the team and what’s next for the venue space, we’ll provide an update. In the meantime, switch off the fairy lights and pay your respects before making a booking for one final hit out, before the pippis with white wine and cherry tomato soffritto and that rotisserie chook live on in legend alone.
