Delicious alchemy in a glass

From sky bars to hidden bars, sip mixologists’ classic and new creations. Enjoy cocktails with fabulous views of the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour. Behind some doorways are fun themes, from roaring twenties and daring speakeasies to stylish fifties and glittering eighties.

For spectacular views of this beautiful harbour city, savour delicious cocktails in sky bars such as Blu Bar on 36 in The Rocks, O Bar and Dining near Circular Quay, and 360 Bar and Dining in the Sydney Tower Eye. You’ll see iconic attractions sparkle under moonlight as ferries criss-cross the harbour. 

Henry Deane, Sydney

Although Henry Deane is closer to the ground, this contemporary cocktail bar on the top of Hotel Palisade in Millers Point, near Walsh Bay, offers sweeping harbour views. A short walk from Circular Quay is Bulletin Place, where cocktails are exquisitely mixed on the first floor of a heritage building.

Since I Left You, on Kent Street, is like entering a Mad Men set. Nearby on King Street, in-house creations are celebrated at PS40. In a basement on Clarence Street is Grandma’s Bar, where kitsch meets tiki cocktails. In a laneway off Clarence Street is the Baxter Inn, a speakeasy-themed bar.

In vibrant inner-city neighbourhoods are more cocktail delights. The Roosevelt is an elegant bar set among the art deco buildings in Potts Point. The World Bar in nearby Kings Cross serves teapot cocktails in a Victorian terrace and in neighbouring Darlinghurst is Eau de Vie, inspired by the 1920s.
