Lumière on Thirty Five Takes Sydney Sky High

Drink, Sydney / 2 July 2024

Forget the Eiffel Tower, Sydney’s got its own breathtaking view with innovative cocktails to match.

Sydney’s Darling Harbour is twinkling a little brighter these days, thanks to the recent arrival of Lumière on Thirty Five. Perched 35 stories above the city on the rooftop of the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour, this newcomer promises an evening of sophisticated indulgence against a breathtaking backdrop.

Lumière, French for “light,” lives up to its name in more ways than one. Ascend to the 35th floor and be greeted by an expansive vista of Sydney bathed in the warm glow of the cityscape. Floor-to-ceiling windows showcase the iconic landmarks – the Sydney Opera House and The Harbour Bridge all sparkling under the night sky. It’s a truly unforgettable panorama, perfect for a special occasion or a night out with friends.

But Lumière isn’t just about the view. Step inside and discover a chic and intimate space designed for conversation and lingering over a well-crafted drink. Think plush seating in jewel tones, warm lighting, and a touch of Parisian elegance. It’s a place where you can unwind and reconnect after a busy week.

The heart of Lumière is its expertly curated cocktail menu. Gone are the days of sugary concoctions – here, the focus is on innovative and flavourful creations designed to tantalise the taste buds. The talented mixologists take inspiration from around the globe, using premium ingredients and playful techniques to craft cocktails that are as much an art form as a beverage.

For the adventurous palate, there’s the “Lighthouse,” a heady mix of aged whisky, amaro, and bitters, its name a nod to the bar’s position as a beacon in the city’s nightlife. Or perhaps the “Aviary” piques your interest, a delicate and uplifting blend of pear-infused vodka, elderflower, and honey. Each cocktail is presented with a touch of artistry, making it a feast for the eyes as well as the palate.

And if you’re looking for a touch of entertainment, head to Lumière on a Friday or Saturday night, where live music sets the mood. From soulful singers to sophisticated saxophonists, the carefully curated performances add another layer of enjoyment to your well-crafted evening.
