Vivid views don't get better than this.

If there's one Sydney event that can evoke both FOMO and JOMO (that's the 'joy of missing out'), it's Vivid. The Sydney spectacle of lights, art and culture is a must-do every year. The problem is that everyone knows it — so battling the crowds is enough to make you crawl into your blanket fort and skip the whole thing. Well, we've found a way for you to avoid the crowds and enjoy the whole shebang in luxury with the best views and a drink in-hand.
American Express has snagged the best spot overlooking the gorgeous harbour at Cruise Bar's rooftop and will be hosting an exclusive lounge throughout the festival for both cardholders and guests. Nab a spot next to a heater in this luminous lounge — Vivid views don't get better than this.
Whether you're kicking off your night here or dropping in midway through your Vivid tour for some relief from the cold, the Amex lounge is your haven to escape the crowds and take in the sights. Enjoy uninterrupted, panoramic views of the sparkling Sydney Harbour and Sydney Opera House while sipping on Champagne and nibbling on cheese, Lebanese chicken wings and flatbreads and dip. Plus, DJs will also be playing on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.
These exclusive views are free for Amex cardholders. If you don't have an Amex yet, this is your chance to get a taste of the perks that having one of those cards in your wallet allows. Non-cardholders can register to gain complimentary access to the lounge after 8pm — simply show your confirmation email at the door.
The Amex Vivid Lounge will be open every night of Vivid — from Friday, May 24 to Saturday, June 15 — between 5.30–10.30pm. To get your name on the list, head over here.
