Opera Bar Finally Reopens Today So Book Yourself in for a Harbourside Spritz

It's been over six months since Sydneysiders have been able to pull up a cushion on the edge of the Harbour and take in the stunning views with a cocktail in hand. 

The pandemic forced Opera Bar and Opera Kitchen to close their doors earlier this year, but now they're ready to welcome back patrons with open arms (1.5 metres away, of course). 

Both venues are usually synonymous with big crowds and a decent line at the bar — especially on a balmy Sydney eve —  but new COVIDSafe measures means there are a few changes you can expect. 

Instead of instructing your mates to split up to hunt down the nearest free table, you can now reserve your spot online with a booking of up to ten people. There will also be a maximum capacity of one person per four square metres and physical distancing guidelines that will see tables spread out a bit more spaciously. 

Opera Bar and Opera Kitchen will also be implementing measures that have quickly become the norm at venues across the city, including registering with a QR code on entry, cashless payment, and hand sanitiser stations dotted around the facilities. 

And after those pain-free formalities, you can sit down with your mates and enjoy the brand new menus both venues have on offer including a fresh, yet decadent seafood platter at Opera Bar.

Renowned Australian chef Matt Moran designs the Opera Bar menu and sounds pretty keen to welcome customers back for a drink or two just as the weather begins to warm up. 

"Sydney, we've missed you!" Moran wrote on Instagram, announcing the venue's all-new booking system.

While Opera Bar and Opera Kitchen are usually popular stop-offs for interstate and international tourists, now is the perfect time for Sydneysiders to visit and enjoy one of the most spectacular views in the world with plenty of space to stretch out.

Opera Bar and Opera Kitchen are now open on the lower concourse, Sydney Opera House, Bennelong Point. To make a reservation, head to the website.
