Royal Hotel Paddington Rooftop Bar in Sydney

Year round


Iconic multi-level venue, topped with stylish rooftop bar and skyline views.

The Royal Hotel Paddington is a multi-level and multi-space establishment, located in Paddington. With sports bar and pub on the ground floor and Verandah Bar serving gastro pub food on second floor, the real gem is the 3rd and 4th floor cocktail bar Elephant Bar & Rooftop.

Up at the small but very stylish rooftop bar you get fantastic views over the eastern suburbs of Sydney and all the way to the skyline. The decor feels somewhat like an English garden, with old style chairs, round tables and a green hedge framing the terrace, which is also equipped with heaters and cosy hanging lanterns.

Being a cocktail bar, Royal Hotel Paddington Rooftop is a fantastic Sydney rooftop bar for relaxing and sunny drinks with some friends. Well-crafted signatures and classics are complemented with a few choices of bubbles, wine and beer. However, if you want something to eat you have to head to the inside Elephant Bar.

Visit the Royal Hotel rooftop bar anyday for relaxing and urban cocktails. During the weekend you can enjoy cocktail waitresses taking orders at the table and a Cocktail Happy Hour every Saturday from 6-8pm, making this a quite ultimate destination for pre-dinner cocktails with a fantastic view. Just remember to be in good time, as the roof terrace is rather small and do not take bookings.
