To help you take full advantage of Sydney’s beauty and love of booze, Le Courrier Australien has compiled a list of the five best bars in Sydney with breathtaking views. So, grab your friends and grab a table and snap away at views that will send all your Instagram followers into a fit of jealousy!

Opera Bar | Sydney Opera House

There’s no more iconic Sydney sight than that of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, and what better place to soak it up than at Opera Bar? Situated right by the water’s edge, Opera Bar gives the German’s a run for their money as it is often described as the best beer garden in the world. So come on and come down and let yourself be swept away by the panoramic views whilst you sip away at a cocktail or two! 


Manly Wharf Bar | Manly

With four bars sitting on the water’s edge, a menu to please any palate and a view to blow you away, Many Wharf Bar has all your needs sorted. Make the most of Sydney’s scenery by taking a ferry to Manly Wharf and basking in the glory of our land girt by sea. Bonus points if you stay for sunset!


The Bucket List | Bondi Beach

This one’s definitely one for your Sydney bucket list! Placed right in the centre of the undisputed king of Sydney beaches, this bar is the perfect spot for when you’re just finishing up a day at the beach or are heading out for a chic dinner. What better way to end your day than with a glass of frosé as you people watch the sunkissed locals of Bondi Beach. The views are A+ as well!


Coogee Pavilion | Coogee

Coogee Pavilion celebrates the good things in life – friendship, family, fun and food. With three floors, a games arena and a rooftop terrace with four separate bars, two huge balconies and mesmeric ocean wraparound views of the Coogee shortline to blow you away, Coogee Pavilion is not one to miss.


The Glenmore Hotel | The Rocks

With a grand 180 degree views of Sydney Harbour and the city skyline, The Glenmore Hotel has been Sydney’s best kept secret since 1921. Positioned in the heart of the Rocks, it’s sundrenched rooftop bar is the perfect place to sit back, relax and take in what a beautiful city we live in.
