While you're away on holiday in Sydney, there's nothing better than a cheeky cocktail or two at some of these forward-thinking city's vibrant bars. However, if you're looking for something a little different, why not indulge under the stars at one of the city's best rooftop bars? Instead of being cooped up somewhere tight-knit, a rooftop bar will give you a funky atmosphere, great views, and a breath of fresh air. Here's our pick of which to visit in the city:
Lovers of quirky, delicious fare will be treated at this well-loved Sydney location. Choose from classic bar food such as nachos and Italian meatballs, to the more adventurous choices of salt and pepper whitebait, marinated olives and warm roasted almonds.
For groups looking to dress up in their best threads and experience a little of Sydney's glitz and glamour, the Ivy Pool Club is the venue of choice. The bar surrounds a pool and offers private cabanas and leafy palm trees. Visit on a sunny afternoon to feel like you're really relaxing at an exclusive Hollywood location.
If your taste in beer is a little more particular than whatever is on tap, The Local Taphouse's selection of craft beers will tempt your palate. Grab a brew and head out onto the terrace to enjoy shared tasting plates and while the evening away.
With an atmosphere as sweet as its name, the Sweethearts Rooftop Barbecue is the perfect location to wind back after a day of exploring the city. Relax with a spritzer or Mandarin Hibiscus Bellini cocktail under the fairy lights, and nibble at treats straight off the barbecue such as crispy chicken drumsticks with chilli mayo and a salmon skewer with lime and herb butter.
