Where To Drink Outside In Sydney

Outdoor bars come in the form of waterside drinking dens, beer gardens and chic rooftops, spanning the CBD to the outer suburbs. Get your fix with our picks on where to drink outside in Sydney.  

Village Crown

Village Crown is home to a gorgeous alfresco space, perfect for some summertime sunning. Head over to the Zetland haunt for cold wines and quirky cocktails on their pretty terrace. Feeling hungry? They also have some hearty fare on offer, from steaks to burgers.


Smoke should be at the top of your list when it comes to the best outdoor bars in Sydney. Not only is it a buzzing waterfront terrace in the summertime, but there's even pop-up igloos in the cooler months, giving you a cosy place to enjoy drinks with a view anytime of the year. 

Slims Rooftop

With its tropical decor and stunning views of the CBD, it's no wonder why Slims is a popular spot. Located on the top of Hyde Park House, is a pastel paradise for sipping classic cocktails, Aperol spritzes and Champagne (if you're fancy) with Asian-style dishes to accompany.
