Pretty excited about getting our dutty-wine down at Rosie Campbell’s Jerk Diner & Rum Bar, the latest Surry Hills joint brought to you by those marvellous folk from The Soda Factory.


Situated on the corner of Crown and Campbell, the shop front facade was jammin’ last night with party-goers at the VIP official opening and Appleton Estate Jamaican Rum cocktails flowed.

Soaking up the tropical vibes were VIP Guests, James Kerley, Krit, Nacho Pop, Alvin Quah, Matt De Groot and pro surfer, Blake Thornton.


The food, much like the decor, is infused with a little East Coast, USA influence. Circulating the floor and diner-style booths last night was Rosie’s Corn Fritters and Snapper Poke, served in shot glasses with a tea spoon to start.  A new home for jerk in Sydney – guests were treated to Jerk Chicken Sliders, using Rosie’s home-made signature jerk marinade created by Head Chef, Adrian Poon.


Accompanying the cocktail list designed by the award winning Mikey Enright, was Jamaica’s own Royal Jamaican Ginger Beer (alcoholic of course).

As if  the night wasn’t sweet enough the Mini Mess – delicious bite-sized version of Rosie’s signature Caribbean Cheesecake mess made up of meringue, cheesecake cream, ginger cookie and gooey rum caramel. Jamaican me crazy (sorry I went there).RC7
