Next undertook the major refurbishment of Nick’s Seafood Restaurant, a Sydney institution since opening its doors overlooking Darling Harbour in 1998.

The refurbishment was completed in stages to allow the restaurant to continue “business as usual” trading. Notwithstanding the staged sequencing of works, the project was handed over in under four weeks. High quality fixtures and finishes were used throughout the restaurant and included detailed joinery for the reception, bar, internal and alfresco dining areas as well as extensive timber panelling on the ceiling. All existing amenities and back of house areas were refurbished.

In a fast track program of eight days, Next delivered a complete new commercial kitchen and installed new refrigerated display counters for fish produce.

Based on the successful handover of this signature restaurant, Nick’s Restaurant and Bar Group awarded Next the contract to refurbish its adjoining café.
