Alright, people of Sydney, we get it. Y'all love a tight rooftop. You love to drink bevs under the open sky and in line with your demands, venues countrywide are opening up rooftop bars. It's a glorious new era with a skyline of rooftop bars extending into the horizon and, happily, Paddington's Light Brigade Hotel is the latest place to jump on the bandwagon.

It's one of many recent changes for Woollahra's beloved Oxford Street hotel. In November, they reopened after an extensive renovation and came out the other side a whole lot fancier. And since October 7, Brigade Rooftop joined Brigade Bar and Brigade Dining as part of the four-storey hangout, offering pub-goers a lush space with views of the Paddington rooftops and Sydney harbour skyline.

The rooftop functions as a combination space for drinking and dining, and is designed to feel "as casual as a neighbour's terrace," according to Jonathan Richards, director of interior design company SJB (the design wizards who executed the renovation). "We have designed a circular bar that fans around the terrace to enable the visitor full access to the horizon." Executive chef Marco Adler has also developed an accompanying wood-fired pizza menu available on the rooftop and in the Brigade Bar. Pizza and drinks on the rooftop? It's like they read our mind.

At the same time, the Brigade Lounge also opened downstairs. It's a 1920s-themed cocktail bar that blends right into the art-deco vibe of the building, aka the perfect spot for a post-rooftop-pizza tipple.

Brigade Rooftop is now open on the corner of Oxford Street and Jersey Road. Check out their Facebook page for further information.
