We have all dreamed of the rooftop bars we see in movies where our favourite characters mingle in Manhattan at venues overlooking the rest of the city. Sydney actually has quite a few of its own. See our list below of our top choices of rooftop bars in Sydney.
1. The Rook, Sydney
This place may not have the harbour views but it does have the decor done right and an open rooftop. This trendy bar is located on York Street and has the cocktail menu to die for. Our menu picks are the Prawn & Chorizo Fettuccine and Cali Fish Taco’s!
2. The Rooftop, Sydney
The name of this place says it all. Located near the Queen Victoria Building in Sydney’s CBD you will find this venue with its robust drinks menu. On Wednesdays, they have Half Price Winesday, where if you visit between 12pm-3pm you get 50% off wine by the bottle. They also have a Bottomless Brunch for $75 that includes 3 hours of Prosecco & Pizza!
3. Slims Rooftop, Darlinghurst
If you are looking for more of a casual vibe, then Slims Rooftop is the perfect place to visit. It is just up the road from Hyde Park and has some very instagram worthy looking cocktails to select from. Our menu picks would be the Popcorn Shrimp and Raw Salmon Poke Bowl (washed down with a mojito.)
4. Bar Ombre, Sydney
Bar Ombre automatically gets our tick of approval because it has Sydney Harbour Bridge views. So, if harbour views, pizza and cocktails are your thing, this is the place to be. They also have a DJ/live music too, which gives the place a nice vibe. Our menu item picks would be the Calamari Fritti and the Vegetariana Pizza
5. Babylon Rooftop, Sydney
Babylon Rooftop in Sydney’s CBD gives off the biggest New York City vibes. This venue is above Westfield Sydney and is a modern Middle Eastern style bar. The food is delicious and the bar menu is decently priced. On weekends they have 90 minutes worth of bottomless mimosas and meze for $68 per person!
