It’s Back: Opera Bar Reopens With A Japanese Saké Bar, Weekend Waterfront Brunch & An All-Aussie Wine List

Bars, Drink, Sydney / 9 September 2020

Plus, Opera Bar is taking bookings for groups up to 10 (for the first time ever).

It’s one of Sydney’s favourite harbourside bars. Taking up prime position alongside the iconic Sydney Opera House (with some of the best waterside views the city has to offer), Opera Bar is back this spring. From Thursday, September 10th, Opera Bar will be open once again with a revamped, local menu and a stack of pop-up events just in time for spring.

With the weather warming up and the sun well-and-truly shining, Opera Bar is set to be the place for waterside sunset drinks, boozy brunches and so much more. And in big news: Opera Bar is giving guests the chance to book their spot ahead of time (for groups up to 10 pax) for the first time ever. Plus, you can score secure underground parking at Wilsons Parking for just $5 when you book at Opera Bar on evenings and weekdays (for a limited time only).

And there’s plenty of reason to visit Opera Bar this spring. The venue’s new spring menu celebrates local, Australian produce with a strong seafood focus across the menu. Expect everything from fresh Spencer Gulf (SA) Hiromasa kingfish ceviche to a classic Opera Bar NSW south coast Ling fish burger, or why not go all out with the hot and cold seafood platter.

The local theme continues with Opera Bar’s new drinks list now pouring all-Australian wines. You’ll also find triple the number of Aussie spirits behind the bar and plenty of locally-sourced ingredients ready to create a new range of 100% Australian cocktails, such as the Sydney Sling (featuring Four Pillars’ gin with PS Smoked Lemonade).

There is also a stack of must-see spring experiences to try at Opera Bar this month. A pop-up Japanese Temaki & Saké Bar (from September 17th for a limited time only) is coming to Opera Bar this spring and summer, bringing a Japanese influence to Aussie seafood. Think fresh and crunchy miso salmon, yuzu kingfish, prawn hand rolls, sashimi and so much more (all washed down with a refreshing saké highball of course).
