Barangaroo Food & Drink
Barangaroo is buzzing with places to eat and drink, from cute cafes and elegant wine bars to sprawling restaurants and cosier venues. You'll find most of them along Wulugul Walk – this charming waterfront promenade spans 170 metres and is named after the local Aboriginal word for kingfish. There's also the added attraction of being by the water and a stone's throw from the heart of Sydney.
You can eat your way around the world at Barangaroo. Zushi creates modern Japanese dishes while Ume Burger is a Japanese burger mash up. Lotus cooks excellent Chinese dumplings, you can get traditional Thai flavours at Muum Maam and homestyle Indian at Spiced by Billu's. Snack on Turkish mezze at Anason, Spanish tapas at Born by Tapavino, and southern US-style fare at Belle's Hot Chicken and Nola Smokehouse.
Pop into Wild Sage for Instagrammable café dishes, Devon Café if you fancy an Asian twist on your brunch or Bel & Brio for all-day dining. Shortstop Coffee & Donuts has your caffeine needs sorted, Rivareno is the place for gelato and Bourke Street Bakery has you covered for bread and pastries.
For a relaxed, locally-sourced seafood offering, head to love.fish, which also creates cocktails with native ingredients such as lemon myrtle and wattleseed.
Enjoy sustainable seafood at Cirrus, from the award-winning team behind the acclaimed Bentley restaurant and Monopole wine bar in the city centre. At Bea, a contemporary restaurant on the middle level of Barangaroo House headed by chef Tom Haynes, indulge in seasonal share plates and an ever-changing wine list.
For serious fine-dining, head to the new, six-star Crown Sydney. Italian is on the menu at a'Mare and there's high-end woodfired cooking going on at Woodcut. For Japanese fare, choose between world-renowned Nobu or Yoshii's Omakase.
The beautifully designed tri-level Barangaroo House, a charcoaled timber-clad curved building, offers two options for drinks. House Bar is the relaxed, ground-level bar that spills out onto a beer garden, while Smoke is the rooftop bar with fantastic views.
Untied is Barangaroo's other rooftop bar. With a more casual vibe than Smoke, it dishes up fresh cocktails alongside modern Australian fare.
Chi by Lotus has Chinese-inspired cocktails and Shirt Bar is a small bar that does double-duty, serving up whiskey as well as tailored shirts, so order a nip and then get shopping.
At Crown Sydney, Teahouse is a bold and playful take on a traditional Chinese teahouse, serving cocktails and a selection of Asian accented nibbles.
