Many people have a favourite cocktail bar.
That go-to place where they meet after work for drinks, visit with friends on a Saturday night out, and enjoy a quiet date night here and there.
As often as not, favourite Sydney cocktail bars come with a great view. After all, who wouldn’t want to pop in to watch the world go by, enjoy sunsets, and take in the waterfront views with a delicious cocktail in hand and great company at their table?
When you’re looking for Sydney bars with a view to scope out your new favourite watering hole, be sure to stop by Hunter & Barrel.
The Hunter & Barrel view
Hunter & Barrel in Sydney is located on the Cockle Bay Wharf in Darling Harbour. Naturally, this is already one of the most lively and gorgeous locations in Sydney.
From our outdoor terrace patio, you’ll see the Sydney skyline around you, and watch as the sun sinks below the horizon and lights up the glass windows of the city.
In the other direction, you’ll look out into the bay, where you can watch boats cruise by, and enjoy the slow turning of the Darling Harbour Ferris Wheel on the other side of the waterfront.
And if you happen to stop by on a cold, drizzly evening, we can keep you warm indoors as you watch the rain out our massive floor-to-ceiling windows that let in all of the light and the views and none of the dreary weather.
The Barrel in Hunter & Barrel
But what’s a great view without an equally wonderful cocktail in your hand?
The Barrel in Hunter & Barrel refers to our beverage list, which is just as awe-inspiring as the views out our windows.
To start, cast your eyes over our barrel-aged cocktail list. This includes classics such as the negroni, pina colada, and mojito, only elevated with barrel-aged spirits for that something a little extra.
Our house cocktail list includes choices that won’t make your decision any easier, with options such as our Rose Revolution, Pear Thief, and Smoked Zombie.
Of course, our skilled bar tenders would be happy to whip up your favourite off-menu cocktail as well. We also offer a wide variety of beers, ciders, wines, bubbles, and non-alcoholic beverages to ensure you sip on whichever drink the mood calls for.
Something to nibble on
The best bars in Sydney don’t just have great cocktails and Instagram-worthy views, they also have snacks and meals to make a night of it.
Whether you’re only looking for some nibbles to enjoy with your drinks, or are hungry enough for a full meal, there are plenty of options on the Hunter & Barrel menu to whet your appetite.
Starters such as the hot cheese dip or crispy chicken wings, and sides such as our thick-cut chips are ideal to share on the table with a drink. We also offer a full a la carte menu for a meal of your own, and share platters to try the best of several dishes with a friend.
