The Strand Hotel Rooftop Bar in Sydney

Bar bites
Year round


Revamped 99 year old hotel with contemporary rooftop bar.

Standing strong for 99 years, The Strand Hotel is an iconic part of the Darlinghurst neighborhood, but a recent change of owners and renovations means a fresh new (and elevated ) experience.

Mixing Sydney sophistication with a hint of French glamour, the venue includes the ground floor The Strand Bistro and a 17-room boutique hotel on the middle floors, but the real crown jewel is found on top: The Rooftop.

Surrounded by views over the downtown Sydney skyline, The Rooftop blends elegance and bohemian, offering a playful and vibrant mix of colourful textures, warm timber and lush verdant landscaping that encloses the intimate space.

The rooftop menu includes crafted signature cocktails and a few classics, along with tap & bottle brews and a curated selection of wine and champagne. Drinks are complemented with elevated bites, like oysters, caviar, tuna tartare and petite cheesburger.

Available for walk-ins only, The Rooftop at The Strand Hotel is a bound to be a hot-spot for both drinks in the afternoon sun, as well as social nights above Darlinghurst.
