The Best Rooftop Bars in Sydney

Rooftop bars aren’t few and far between in Sydney. As Daylight savings comes into play, it’s no wonder that we are drawn to these rooftop venues for a catch up with friends paired with a few drinks. 

As the city is packed with options, it’s worth noting which rooftop bars are actually worth the hype.

1.Slims Rooftop Bar – Darlinghurst  

Unwind in a tropical oasis, pina colada in hand, at Slims rooftop bar. Renowned for their huge selection of classic summer cocktails, Slims is the perfect place to hang out on a balmy, summer evening in the heart of the city. 

Prepare to be stumped when it comes to ordering. Slims have an amazing range of zakaya-style eats, from salt pepper squid served with homemade hot sauce, to pork belly bao buns and perfectly plump gyozas, the decision of what to eat isn’t easy.

You can find the Rook, hidden above the bustle of York street. A japanese inspired cocktail bar, with a great selection of gin cocktails. You must try the japanese sandman, which contains cherry infused gin, apricot brandy, cointreau and lime..delicious! 

Despite their Japanese inspired theme, The Rook also hosts an Italian style bottomless brunch. Every Saturday and Sunday you can indulge in an Italian share platter, along with 90 minutes of unlimited quincy seltzers and spritz. Keep in mind, bookings for the bottomless brunch are essential!

5. Light Brigade Rooftop- Paddington  

Catch spectacular views of Sydney’s skyline at the Light Brigade rooftop bar. Notorious for their woodfire pizza, they also serve burgers, mains and a selection of light bites. Their stand out pizza would have to be the roasted mushroom pizza topped with pumpkin, gorgonzola and pine nuts.
