Bar Ombre New Year's Eve
Score a view of the fireworks paired with a five-course Italian meal and free-flowing booze.
One of the most affordable spots on the harbour this NYE is at Bar Ombre. For $350, you can enjoy a five-course meal, three-hour drinks package and views of the fireworks from the rooftop of Salt Meats Cheese Circular Quay.
On the menu at this openair event, you'll find a selection of shared starters including zucchini flowers, rosemary and garlic focaccia and soft shell crab, as well as an oyster, prawn and tuna seafood platter. You'll then be offered your choice of either crisp-skinned Tasmanian salmon and wagyu scotch fillet with truffle butter and charred broccoli. In the lead up to midnight, you'll be treated to mini cannoli and tiramisu, and prosecco, red and white wine along with beer will be free-flowing through the night.
If you want to be among the action and enjoy a hearty Italian meal, but aren't fussed about the fireworks, you can alternatively book a table downstairs, which includes a three-course meal and glass of Moët for $145.
Bookings are available via the Salt Meats and Cheese website.
