The Glenmore Rooftop Bar in Sydney

City, harbour & skyline
Year round


An Aussie icon since 1921, known for its sundrenched rooftop with sweeping views of Sydney Harbour and the CBD.

The Glenmore Hotel is a real Sydney classic, built in 1921 and last renovated in 2012 it comes in an old colonial English tradition with a modern touch. The three level establishment has a ground floor public bar, a cocktail bar and private rooms in the middle and then the real gem up top, the rooftop bar where you get an unbeatable panoramic view of Sydney Harbour, the Sydney skyline and the Opera House.

Located at The Rocks, just south of Harbour Bridge, Glenmore Hotel is a modern and fun pub-style rooftop bar, perfect for relaxing drinks and bites in a casual atmosphere. Popular place, so it comes with buzzing vibes but also the note that you should be in good time to get a table, both around lunch hour and in the evening.

You will not be short on food and drinks up at the Glenmore rooftop, with eats ranging from Salt & Pepper Squid and Poké Bowls to Burgers and Black Angus Sirlion. The beer list is mighty impressive and the cocktails are well made and come in both glasses and jugs.

Open year round and rain or sunshine thanks to a retractable roof, Glenmore Hotel is an eventful rooftop bar hosting both public and private parties, acoustic Sunday Sessions and even some rooftop yoga in Sydney (complete list here). Do not miss Glenmore Hotel rooftop bar if you are in Sydney.
