Sydney’s tallest freestanding structure, Sydney Tower has had more name-changes than we can remember. And so has its bar. Overlooking a city that loves to celebrate, the recently-refurbished O Bar sure is a slick spot for a cocktail. Last known as the Orbit Lounge, O Bar has been transformed by chef and owner Michael Moore into a tasteful, contemporary space. It’s all dark walls and ambient lighting that allow the 47th floor views of Sydney do the talking. Echoing the cuisine in the downstairs revolving restaurant (O Dining), market-fresh fruits are the star of the cocktail list, which is heavy on exotic, tropical concoctions like the Pink Caipirinha (cachaca, smashed fresh strawberries muddled with lime, ginger and mint agave nectar) and Long Lychee (42 Below Vodka, lychee and basil) but all the classics can be made here too, on top of O Bar’s signature martini. The wines and draughts are all Australian, but bottled international beers are also available. If you’re not heading downstairs to tuck into a plate of steaming Yamba prawns or roasted lamb rump for dinner, you can still order food from o Bar’s own menu, which features a concise selection of nibbles (try the pink salt and nut butter almonds), grazing dishes and desserts. Favoured by international visitors and the business set, O Bar is hardly a ‘locals’ spot. But there’s always a healthy air of excitement up here it’s certainly a thrill drinking on top of the city. If you plan to combine your visit with the hair-raising Skywalk on the building’s podium level, do the walk first participants are required to take a breath test to confirm sobriety.
