Opera Bar In Bloom
Alcoholic soft serve and gin spritzes with some of the best views in town.
With its sweeping Sydney views and good times vibes, Opera Bar remains a firm favourite among tourists and locals alike. And, now that the warm weather has (mostly) returned, the harbourside venue is giving you even more to love with the launch of In Bloom. Available till November 3, it's a new drinks menu dedicated to alcoholic soft serve and gin spritzes.
Start off perusing the menu of five different Bombay Sapphire spritzes (all $18), served all day and late into the night. Varieties include the Summer Blush (cherry blossom and grapefruit), the Violet Fizz (white vermouth, violet and orange blossom) and the Tea Dreams (chai tea, hibiscus, ginger and lime). If you're feeling peckish, you can order something off the all-day bar menu, with snacks including Sydney rock oysters, tiger prawns, pizzas and fried chicken with jalapeño mayo.
Dessert-wise, the new Bombay Sapphire-based frozen treats are the real drawcard. The gin soft serves are available in two flavours: tonic with lemon and cherry violet. They'll set you back $12 a pop and are the equivalent to about one standard drink.
And, at sunset each day, live acts will take the stage to serenade you into the night.
Opera Bay is open from Monday–Thursday, 10am–midnight; Friday, 10am–1am; Saturday, 9am–1am; and Sunday, 9am–midnight.
