The Upper House
May 11, 2018
The ever so glamorous Upper House occupies the top thirteen floors of a fifty story building. The views out over the harbour are as striking as you’d expect but they’re only part of the picture. The hotel is contemporary, serene and luxurious and all those terms can be applied to the bar. The room is packed with plush booths and couches and boasts the longest bar in the city. It’s stylish and romantic, designed to impress but not to overwhelm. Find a perch, order a cocktail or a glass of wine (served in appealingly dramatic stemware) and settle down to watch the sun set through a curtain of cloud and the city light up for the night.
