Welcome to Barangaroo, the must-see destination to eat, drink, shop and hang out in the heart of Sydney.
Home to a curated collection of food, fashion, lifestyle, offices and apartments, we spent the day exploring Barangaroo to put together your ultimate day-to-night itinerary. Keep reading to see where to dine, shop and pamper yourself at this thriving waterfront precinct.
Start the day with a bite to eat from the quirky Devon Café. With unusual offerings such as a Bubba Gump omelet (packed with grilled prawn, chorizo and pickled onion on a house-baked croissant, $24) or the Corny Benny (with poached eggs and house-cured salmon on buttermilk and ricotta cornbread and smothered with Romesco sauce, $21), you’re sure to uncover some out-of-the-box brunch creations. Plus, you’ll also find a hearty ‘Sando’ menu if you’re looking to grab a bite on the way to the office.
Looking for something lighter? For a more casual coffee and pastry experience, it’s hard to go past Barangaroo’s Bourke St Bakery outpost for delicious sweet treats, freshly baked pastries and a healthy dose of caffeine.
Barangaroo is home to an extensive range of fashion and lifestyle stores, making it the perfect destination to update your wardrobe or refresh your living space. From globally sourced fashion and accessories from Collector Store to the exclusive range of Scandinavian, American and Australian labels at Somedays Store, clear your afternoon plans and get ready to explore these stellar boutiques. Make a pit stop at David Jones concept store for a reimagined delivery of fashion and be sure to swing by Peter’s of Kensington for the biggest brands in homewares, kitchenware, dinnerware and so much more. Have a wander down Scotch Row and exchange place for a spot of retail therapy, coffee in hand.
Is any day out in Sydney complete without #activewear? We think not! So grab your best yoga tights and head upstairs to The Space Studio to escape the hustle and bustle and find some zen. This boutique studio offers tailored classes that fit into any lunch break. The space is fitted out with modern changing rooms complete with showers, towels, hairdryers and styling tools so you can easily fit in a yoga flow right before a meeting at the office. At The Space Studio you’ll find yoga, pilates, barre and relaxation classes to help you de-stress and restore balance into your daily routine.
Sydney’s award-winning duo Brent Savage and Nick Hildebrandt behind Bentley, Monopole and Yellow, head up Barangaroo’s waterfront seafood restaurant Cirrus. This hatted restaurant’s menu reflects the venue’s harbourside location with dishes created using seasonal produce from local growers and sustainably-sourced seafood.
Start with some freshly shucked oysters ($5 each) and Roasted Skull Island Prawns with Fermented Chilli and Thai Basil ($24). An absolute must-try is the Ocean Trout and Smoked Beetroot with Toast ($26). With a stunning presentation of a beetroot jelly topping the trout and beetroot dip, it almost looks too good to eat. But you’re going to want to slather it on the hot toast as it is divine! You’ll have an extensive wine list to choose from with over 500 options ranging from the classics to the modern and innovative dishes.
After a long relaxing morning, pop into David Jones to get a makeover for dinner and drink plans later. Using both Chanel and Mac products, it’s the perfect stop to add some glam to your look ahead of a night out in the city.
Flowers For Everyone creates farm-fresh flower bouquets and arrangements are in store for custom gifts and ready to go bouquets, and the smell as you enter the store is amazing. With beautiful native florals as well as traditional blooms, it’s the perfect space to enjoy a glass of bubbles and create your very own flower crown. Coachella we’re ready!
