The Rook


This cool rooftop bar in Sydney CBD can be recognised by its reclaimed wooden walls, painted murals and modern interiors. The Rook is a one of the city's most sought-after drinking dens, offering incredible views for sipping signature cocktails and making your way through the menu of fresh lobster and juicy burgers.

When it comes to the weekend, this place is all about Italian-style bottomless brunches, complete with 90 minutes of bottomless seltzers, spritzes and a delicious antipasto spread. Planning a party? The bar has two impressive areas that can be booked out for your event (as well as the entire venue). The dining room's retractable roof allows you to look at the stars as you celebrate, while the intimate and dimly-lit nest area is perfect for more intimate affairs.
