The Old Clare Hotel Rooftop Bar in Sydney

Bar bites
Year round


Rooftop bar oasis in the middle of the city, complete with a rooftop pool.

The fantastic five-star The Old Clare Hotel comes with a fantastic 4th floor rooftop terrace, inviting to a beautiful space where you can escape the clamour of the city.

With a great location right by the Central Station, the wooden decked, glass-enclosed and very stylish rooftop oasis offers beautiful views of Sydney and Chippendale.

The main feature of the terrace is the amazing 14-metre rooftop pool. Heated and pleasant year round, the pool is (almost always) only available for guests staying at the hotel. But don't despair, the rooftop bar is much more 'for all'.

Open to the public Thursday to Sunday, this is a great spot to mix relaxing vibes, fantastic views and tasty bites & drinks. The menu by A1 Canteen serves creative siganture and classic cocktails, beer and wine, along with eastern-Mediterranean-influenced snacks and bites.

Weekends also means rooftop poolside brunch.
