There aren't many things that Sydney likes more than a rooftop bar. Sipping an ice-cold cocktail high above the city on a sunny day — does it get much better? Luckily, we've got plenty of top-notch options, and another is set to launch on Thursday, November 2 with CBD hotel Kimpton Margot opening Harper Rooftop Bar.
The lavish boutique-meets-luxury accommodation already boasts plenty of top-notch dining spots including Luke Mangan's Luke's Kitchen and lobby cocktail haven The Wilmot Bar. Now, Harper is joining in on the fun with a summer-ready drinks list, a colourful fitout, a sky-high pool and more Mangan snacks.
"We've created a delicious Mediterranean-inspired menu full of small, share-style plates using fresh, local produce and plenty of amazing seafood — the perfect combo to celebrate the warm summer days," says Mangan.
As for the drinks menu, it's been injected with a whole lot of fun. Alongside classic cocktails and a robust wine selection, there are boozy slushies on offer ready to cool you down on a warm December day. And, if you feel like frosé is so 2019, Harper Rooftop Bar is mixing things up with frozen riesling (or friesling).
Kimpton claims that this is Sydney CBD's biggest rooftop bar, with the expansive L-shaped space set up to accommodate everything from intimate after-work drinks to large group events. Surrounded by Sydney's mass of inner-city high-rises, the new seventh-floor venue boasts plenty of greenery, bright pod seating and long group dining tables. You'll also find the hotel's swimming pool perched above the bar, calling out for hotel guests to enjoy a poolside martini during their stay.
As the silly season kicks off, keep an eye on the bar's Instagram, with the rooftop expected to host plenty of crowd-pleasing events throughout spring and summer.
