The Rooftop Kotara: Our favourite things

The new rooftop development at Westfield Kotara has been open for two weeks now. We’ve been a bunch of times to eat, drink and check out the live music. These are a few of our favourite things…

The Stage

Definitely the plushest astroturf we’ve ever sat on, and the perfect setting for some relaxed live music. With a line up of the some of the best local artists hitting the stage over December, we’ll be spending many afternoons and evenings here.

PRO TIP: Don’t miss Josh & Joey on Sunday the 13th of December from 1pm to 4pm. Check out a video of them performing ‘You and I’ by Ingrid Michealson

Mad Mex

We’ve eaten at most of the delicious Rooftop restaurants, but we have to say that Mad Mex Cantina is hands down our favourite. The guys behind the Mad Mex chain of restaurants say they are inspired by freshness, colour, and flavour, and it certainly shines through at the Cantina. Also, we’re loving the decor – pops of colour, quirky light fixtures, and cute pineapples lining the bar.

PRO TIP: You can’t go past a burrito washed down with a icy cold Corona!

The kids playground

Sporting a massive chalk board and the same lush astroturf we love in front of the stage, this kids playground will keep your little ones entertained for ages.

PRO TIP: If you want to enjoy something to eat and drink while the kids play, pull up a seat at Lonestar Rib and Steak House or Kimms Thai restaurant. They’re the closest restaurants to the playground.
