THE GROUNDS OF SOUTH EVELEIGH
Restoring the long-awaited return of real social connection is finally here and what better way to celebrate than with an experience like no other at the newest Grounds venue. Due to open its doors in 2022, The Grounds of South Eveleigh will sit at the heart of Sydney’s newest hotspot for all things arts and food culture.
South Eveleigh is certainly becoming the place where foodies go, thanks to Mirvac’s bold reimagining of the former Australian Technology Park. The new venue is the result of a 6 year collaboration between The Grounds and Mirvac, creating guest experiences that will complement the rich heritage of The Locomotive Workshop; a site that celebrates the golden era of revolution and industrious spirit that drove Australia forward. In true Ground’s style, the vision for South Eveleigh is awe-inspiring – one which will revolutionise the way we connect, celebrate, and share in life’s magical moments.
A venue where that distinctive Grounds beauty meets the rich history of revolution, the South Eveleigh site is set to capture the essence of experiences made memorable through sensory journeys and celebration.

The Grounds Coffee Roastery
From the quintessential coffee lover to the curious kid, guests will be invited to step into an immersive sensory experience like no other – behind the curtains of the coffee cup. The venue’s state of the art coffee roastery will not only offer Australia’s finest cuppas, but engage patrons in the entire coffee-making process from bean to brew. Every little step to the art of coffee will be brought to life right before your eyes, as guests will be invited to see where it all starts in the rawest form – did you know that coffee is born as a little green bean? Imagine sipping on a warm cup of your favourite brew, immersed in the magic of how it was perfectly crafted with a touch of TLC, just for you. From raw to roast, bean to brew; the entire process will surround you; picture hand-picked coffee beans travelling through pipes above you, as the state-of-the-art coffee roasters hum to the sound of happiness.
That flavour of joy and rich aroma that only coffee brings will be taken to a whole new level by The Grounds, with even more that will delight your senses. Led by The Grounds Roastery’s passionate team of baristas, behind-the-scenes tours and workshops will also be available for everyone – from the everyday guest with a curiosity for coffee, to the wholesaler sourcing their favourite selections. Rest assured that the party for your tastebuds does not stop at coffee with options for a casual breakfast or lunch available too – inspired by the site’s historical canteen; a hub that nourished busy workers of a golden era.
