When you need a sneaky sundown drink, but don't want to travel too far from the city, Helm Bar has the goods. Located in Darling Harbour, it has all the watery vistas and revitalising breeziness you need — and just a hop, skip and jump away from the CBD.
What's more, this season, the venue has been transformed into an Edenic-like garden, thanks to the good people at Chandon. In celebration of its summery drink, Chandon S (sparkling wine dashed with aromatic orange bitters), the brand has taken over the waterside bar with loads of greenery and ultra-relaxed vibes.
The garden is open both lunchtime and evening, but the best time to go is at sundown. With the working day off your shoulders, you can sit down, kick back and sip a glass of the sparkling goodness for just $11. Got a big group in tow? You can also order a bottle for $50.
The Chandon S Garden at Helm won't be around forever, so get in quick. To make a booking, visit the Helm website.
