The Rooftop Sydney Rooftop Bar in Sydney

Year round


Hamptons-inspired rooftop bar and restaurant with Darling Harbour views.

The Rooftop Sydney is a rather new and very stylish rooftop bar, perched on top of the Shelbourne Hotel, located in CBD Sydney, right by the Pyrmont Footbridge. Up here you can enjoy alfresco sunset drinks, relaxed rooftop dining, music and great views over Darling Harbour.

Bright, fresh and warm in decoration, taking inspiration from the Hamptons, the terrace has a nice garden-feel, with a mix of regular tables, hanging chairs, umbrellas and tropical palm trees. The rooftop also comes with a retractable roof, open for sunny summer drinks and closed if the weather turns to the worse, making The Rooftop Sydney a year-round destination. And the floor-to-ceiling windows guarantee great views all days and nights.

From the rooftop bar you can order from a nice selection of crafted signature cocktails, along with good choices of beers, bubbles and all types of wine. The food menu is all about sharing, with a mix of large and small share plates focusing on local seafood, premium meats, salads and lean skewers prepared in the open rooftop kitchen.

Expect a sophisticated, relaxed and friendly atmosphere, making The Rooftop Sydney a great spot for both a long and sunny lunch, soft cocktails and vibes or a romantic night out. Just take note of the opening hours, which are a bit 'exclusive', usually from lunch to late night Wednesday to Saturday.
