Head to Darlinghurst’s newest rooftop bar, Elm, for flowing drinks and top-notch views.
You’ll probably be familiar with the iconic Darlinghurst pub, The Taphouse. Set in one of the suburb’s most bustling spots, The Taphouse is one of Sydney’s most awarded craft beer venues. In fact, they have one of the largest collections of craft beers (by the bottle and can) in the southern hemisphere. And now, The Taphouse is joined by an all-new rooftop bar.
Head upstairs and you’ll find Elm Rooftop Bar. Brought to you by the crew from The Taphouse this newly refreshed alfresco escape is the perfect spot to sip something delicious as the sun goes down.
As far as rooftop bars go, Elm ticks all the boxes. Expect prime views across Centennial Parklands, Flinders Street, and Darlo’s lush treetops. The venue itself offers a fresh new industrial look, complete with climbing ivy walls, festoon lighting, and plenty of leafy palms.
So, what can you expect to be sipping at Elm Rooftop Bar? Made for boozy Sunday sessions, the drinks list delivers everything from fresh-juiced cocktails to a stack of top-notch seltzers and a load of classic cocktails.
For gin lovers, don’t miss their ‘High Passion’ gin cocktail with passionfruit liqueur and puree topped with fresh cucumber juice. Plus, beat your hangover with their ‘Bloody Elm’ cocktail, a fresh take on a Bloody Mary with basil-infused vodka, house spice mix and freshly juiced tomato juice.
And as you’d expect, craft beer is another one of Elm Bar’s strengths. There are over 20 craft beers on tap as well as the venue’s extensive beer menu on offer for the ultimate taste-testing experience. And even wine lovers will be impressed with a generous wine list (and many drops offered by the glass).
Once you’ve worked up an appetite, you’ll be able to order everything from cheese and charcuterie boards, steak sambos, Southern Fried cauliflower bites as well as their much-loved crumbed jalapeño poppers with blue cheese filling.
Find Elm Rooftop Bar at Level 2, 122 Flinders Street Darlinghurst. Open Thursday to Sunday.
