    City-Center, Sydney

    About the bar

    With sweeping views of the harbour & CBD, The Glenmore has a lot going for it. There are smarter venues in the city, sure, but the views here are pretty impressive and reason enough to visit. One of the city's oldest pubs (it dates back to the early 1920s and is one of the last surviving pre- Harbour Bridge buildings on Cumberland Street), The Glenmore Hotel known affectionately as the 'Glennie' - boasts a rooftop bar area complete retractable canopy, so you can keep on drinking even if the weather rebels. As we said, it's not the most luxe or stylish of watering holes, but it has charm and history plus a selection of patio furniture on which you can perch with your pint and soak up some rays. The vibe is friendly and lively and the place tends to get packed to capacity when the sun shines. There's a decent range of beer, all the usual suspects on tap, plus a good wine list and a particularly wide range of whiskies. A handful of classic cocktails are offered too though that's not what they're known for. Food-wise, they offer fairly standard pub grub burgers, wings, wedges and the like. Your best bet is probably to stick to liquid things. Order a couple of cold ones and revel in one of the best views in the neighbourhood.
