The Verdict

Recognised (and rightly so) as one of Sydney’s best bars, drinkers flock to Blu Bar on 36 for their famed selection of delicious cocktails and tempting nibbles. 

Located within the glorious Shangri-La Hotel, Blu Bar on 36 boasts glistening views across Sydney Harbour and all the way across the water. Settle in for the night and let the mixologists whip you up something special, you can opt for one of the creative cocktails from the Liquid Physics menu (don't miss the Smoking Mistress), or chat to the bartender and see what they can whip up for you.

If you're in to the classics, the vanilla espresso martini is an excellent way to transition your day into an evening and Blu Bar on 36's take on the old fashioned is one to add to your cocktail bucket list.

You also won't need to travel too far (or at all) to fill your belly if you're hungry, either. Perhaps try some oysters to enjoy with your Champagne, or a work your way through a ploughman's board while you sample cocktails. Of course, there are plenty of local and international beers and wine if that's more your style. 

Sitting 36 levels above The Rocks, you'll be treated to one of the best views from a bar in Sydney, showing you just how incredible this city of ours is. It's worth conquering your fear of heights.
