Portside Sydney

Liven love: 10% Rewards

Enjoy a harbourside dining experience with uninterrupted views of the Sydney skyline, including Circular Quay and Sydney Harbour Bridge, at Portside Sydney. Portside is a great choice if you're looking for classic cocktails with a twist. The bartenders here are passionate about their craft and celebrate some of the best vintages across Australia as well as classic cocktails, spirits & aperitifs. If you're feeling adventurous, try the Whisky Sour. Made with Starwood Two Fold Whisky, fresh lemon juice and egg white, it is absolutely refreshing!

Bar Ombre

Liven love: 10% Rewards, Buy $50 + Bonus $10

Bar Ombre is perfect if you're looking for somewhere to relax and have a few drinks with friends. This inner-city rooftop haven boasts afternoon aperitivo, light fare, and eclectic entertainment – your place to embrace the golden hours of the early evening and everything that lies beyond. The cocktails are all amazing, but we highly recommend the refreshing and tart Peach Amor, featuring Amaretto, Aperol, peach liqueur, peach bitters, lemon juice and egg whites.

Bar 83

Bar 83 soars high above the city CBD, 83 floors above street level, in the iconic Sydney Tower. A striking décor, with subtle hints of retro nostalgia and spectacular floor-to-ceiling windows, affords sky-high revellers a 260-degree view of Sydney’s glittering cityscape. Bar 83’s cocktail list champions Australia’s seasonal produce and ingredients with international influences. Our personal favourite is the Is Dasshu which features vodka, lychee liqueur, yuzu, lemon,prosecco and elderflower Tonic.
