A big thanks to Liam and team for their service on the weekend. We had a bucks day for 27 people and everybody enjoyed the day. The space upstairs was very suitable for us and all facilities were excellent, the food and drinks were excellent and made for a memorable experience, thanks to The Riser!

Who says you have to be fancy to be good. This place is the exception to the rule for sure. Where else can you get a succulent porterhouse steak for $20? Where else you can eat said deal of the century with a bar mat on the table? Here. Can’t wait for next Monday!

Our company held their 2023 Christmas Party at the Rising Sun on the Rooftop Bar. Great area for a private function that had 85 attending. We also had our own Singer Emma Black we hired for the event and she was awesome. Service from Charley and Izzy on the bar throughout the night was fantastic and the the platters of food were never ending. We probably over catered. Owners Liam and Patrick Jnr were fantastic to work with leading up to the event as well as on the night. Nothing was too much for the Rising Sun team to do to make the function a success. An awesome night had by all. Thanks to all at the Rising Sun who contributed to make the event a success
