Bennelong Bar, Sydney Opera House

Ambience There’s really nothing like sitting beneath the sails of Jørn Utzon’s Opera House, sinking back in curved chocolate seats with a glass of wine and taking in the view.

What to order Award-winning sommelier John Clancy’s wine list runs the gamut from the Barossa to Bordeaux and everywhere vine-worthy in between. The crab sandwiches are essential.

In the know There’s not a bad seat in the house – every plush seat has killer views of Sydney Harbour – but it’s best at sunset.


Shore Club, Manly

Ambience The roof at Shore Club peels down to show the beachfront and let in the breeze.

What to order Order the Pimms cup to share. Trust us.

In the know Head right up to the roof for a private tent.


Zeta Bar, Hilton Sydney

Ambience Head bartender Grant Collins and company can make you anything you care to name. The space is sophisticated with dark nooks, squishy banquettes and a long, polished bar. And if it’s a bit of fresh air you’re in need of, there’s a huge balcony looking over the QVB.

What to order Try a ‘sensory experience’ cocktail – fun, 10-minute experiences that involve being blindfolded and played music from an iPod. The ‘Tiki’ involves being sprayed with coconut scent and drinking out of a huge pineapple.

In the know The lounges out the back are a great place to hide if you’ve had one too many Manhattans (or the date is going especially well… ).


In Situ, Manly

Ambience You can’t beat it for vibe and it has excellent cocktails. It’s a cool, breezy courtyard café by day, and an atmospheric, classy, candle-lit cocktail lounge by night.

What to order They do a fantastic Cuba Libre but if beer’s your friend, they have a good selection as well as a modest wine list.

In the know There’s a happy hour each evening as well as regular live music.


Aperitif, Kings Cross

Ambience It’s a cosy old terrace in the heart of the Cross with one of the city’s best wine lists.

What to order The wine list is incredible and there’s also a tapas menu offering share plates – perfect with a Martini or beer, too, if you’re not a lover of all things wine related.

In the know Sit out in the courtyard under the arms of the ancient fig tree or nab a lounge right down the back. Romantic.


Ash Street Cellar, Ivy Sydney

Ambience Because the space is reliant on outdoor seating, diners light up left, right and centre, which can be off putting if you’re not a smoker. But hey, it’s all part of the European bar experience – breathe in the atmosphere.

What to order There’s an impressively large Champagne list as well as a great selection by the glass, bottle and carafe – perfect with Lauren Murdoch’s excellent tapas menu.

In the know Demonstrate your savoir faire by heading to Ash Street via Angel Place, thus avoiding having to queue for Ivy proper.


Café Lounge, Darlinghurst

Ambience The 70s couches, Tretchikoff prints and multi-coloured lantern lighting gives it the ‘I wish this was my local’ vibe and the food and drinks are designed to make you feel at home.

What to order A small but reliable selection of wine turns up a few gems and the beer selection is a who’s who of trendy Surry Hills favourites including Little Creatures and Coopers Pale Ale.

In the know Look out for rotating house specials and DJs.


Different Drummer, Glebe

Ambience A favourite with Glebe’s glitterati, it’s packed three deep at all times and has a working model train that makes its way around the room. Really.

What to order Their sangria is a signature but they also feature a selection of local and imported beers. Try one of the classic cocktails off their recently re-worked list.

In the know Pitch a pozzy out the back in the enclosed garden or brave the throng in the dark pockets of the main bar. There are two-for-one drinks between 6 and 7.30pm, and the bar stays kicking until 2am.


Lotus, Potts Point

Ambience From Florence Broadhurst wallpaper, teardrop chandeliers and backlit resin bar, to drinks straight up, neat or perfect, this place is all class.

What to order The polished and professional bar staff here would rather have you trying something new (or classic) rather than reverting to Lychee Martinis and Midori Splices. There’s also an exceptional wine list, if cocktails aren’t for you.

In the know Arrive earlier in the evening and sit at the bar for maximum cocktail love. The restaurant serves great food, too. Order the roast chicken for two, if it’s on.


Shop and Wine bar, Bondi

Ambience It’s Barbie-Dream-Home-small with a handful of tables and chairs inside and out. It’s also nice to be able to visit a bar in Bondi that isn’t just churning through the punters and the drinks.

What to order The wines on the list aren’t the most exciting in Sydney but they’re reasonably priced and they have half bottles – which is extra cool. They also claim to make “possibly the best Bloody Mary ever!”).

In the know They offer a ‘mystery wine’ on the menu. Fun.
