Updated: Jul 21, 2022

Where are the best spots to hit up across Sydney? From Bottomless Brunching, Caribbean Mexican Themes, Rooftop Treasures & more to explore; share with your girls to get out & about in our amazing city!

The Winery

Bottomless Brunching, sunshine & smiles in Surry Hills! 2 hours of Bottomless Bellini's / Sparkling and 3 courses on the menu for $79 pp 11.30am, 2pm or 4.30pm on a Saturday, whereas Sunday's options are limited to either 11.30am or 2pm!


Rooftop Brunch with Soul - Barangaroo's Best! Non-stop flow of cocktails with Soul Singers over the weekend providing the best R&B throwbacks for you & your girls! $79 pp, either 11am or 2pm slots. Sundays brunch is the Vegan option! (Yes it can be a very early start getting the glam squad out the door and into that Uber to arrive on time!)

Bondi Hardware

Bondi Brunch -Grab your girls, book out the Secret Garden, pump your own bangers from their speakers and enjoy the privacy of the Rose lunch! 2 hours of bottomless Rose Sangria / Rose bottomless along with 6 courses of food to share for $75 pp.

Estate Coogee Beach

One of the newer venues in Coogee opening just before the pandemic struck the hospitality industry, this spot is opposite the beautiful sand with so many options here to suit all tastes, The Kitchen: Formal and plenty of seafood. The Terrace: Outdoor seating area ~ beach style. Taqueria: All the Taco's & Live DJ! This used to be divided up into three separate areas to book, but I believe it may have changed recently. Bookings are usually recommended here!

Babylon Rooftop

Escape to the Middle East in the heart of the CBD. Located in the Westfield Shopping Centre, the food here is honestly to die for! Such an amazing spread. There are options to sit indoors or outdoors, perfectly suited to the unreliable Sydney weather. Sip on some gins outside and admire the Sydney skyline!

The Squire's Landing - James Squire Brewhouse

Ahhh the iconic Sydney backdrop! One of my top bars in Australia. Opposite the Bridge a.k.a "The Coathanger" & The Opera House you will admire the most wonderful setting as you socialise with friends and listen to live music and capture that instagrammable photo!

Blackbird Cocktail Bar

Darling Harbour delivers a special venue here with a serious cocktail menu. Happy Hour everyday ~ Friday 3pm - 7pm & Sunday - Thursday 3pm - 6pm! How good - grab your sisters, chicas, girlos and kickstart your night here soaking up the atmosphere!

Beach Burrito Company

Amidst the vibe of Coogee Bay Road, this is such a lovely spot to start your night off - lining the tummies! The dishes and tacos are so tasty, not to mention the cocktail jugs you can sink - I recommend trying most of the flavours if you can, to really find your fave!

The Lobo

Oh this place is unique! A Caribbean Style Rum Bar, located on Clarence Street in the city! With dark decor, you will enter underground and be greeted by a gorgeous tropical smell of island life! This was formally known as Lobo Plantation Bar and this was in fact due to The Black Lives Matter movement that the bar owner decided to change it's name.

The Unicorn Hotel Paddington

Another gem with a downstairs seating area, relaxed Aussie vibes with excellent wine choices! If it's a winter cosy night you're after, you'll feel comfortable here, or if you fancy some Summer Schooners to quench your thirst in the Courtyard - this spot caters for all!

Lil' Darlin' Randwick

Tapas, cocktails, happy hours and a super colourful bar! Lil'Darlin is also in Surry Hills, there are endless amounts of signature cocktails to try out including Salted Caramel Popcorn Martini. For group options why not grab the galz & book into a Cocktail MasterClass starting at $89 pp at Surry Hills only - great idea for a Hens party!

Newport Arms Garden Bistro

Venture out of the city, book a party bus and travel to the Northern Beaches! This venue reminded me of a cross betweeen the Grounds of Alexandria & Watsons Bay. The tunes, vibes and atmosphere are like no other place we have in Sydney by the coast! So many bars and food options, enjoy the specatacular views of another Merivale venue.


Did someone say bottomless Margaritas? If you are a taco lover and enjoy a salsa vibe, this is a spot to try out in Bondi. 1.5 hours of Brunching for $79 pp. Spanishwoodfire vibes with your sexy chicas! Honestly - this place was my least favourite brunch spot I've been to in Sydney But look, I feel like we just had a bad day there, as I've heard other people say they had a good expererience! Drinks - plenty of margs, food was the slight let down with the overall quality!

The Beresford

The good ole Beresford in Surry Hills! I love their Courtyard which is a suntrap on a hot day, enjoy some pub grub or take advantage of the $6 drinks from 6pm - 8pm every day! #Beroclock. Upstairs you can take it to another level with the dancefloor & tunes (Yes we can dance again!) This is where i held my 30th Birthday & what a frickin' night that was!

The Rooftop Sydney

3 hours of Prosecco + Pizza what a double treat! Usually $75, however we got a November deal with this so you might be lucky with a monthly special. Such a generous package from the moment we sat down. The pizzas are so delish (4/5 types to choose from) Very friendly staff, great vibes, tunes were pumping with Darling Harbour views!

The Nook

City Rooftop Drinks with a Boujee Entrance - my kinda Friday Night Sydney Vibe!

Visit for a hidden entrance - it looks like an office building downstairs so don't be fooled. Get to the Top at Level 7 and be greeted by an ARCHway of beauty. Cocktails, share plates, food & drinks in a lively open Veranda style setting!

We are just starting to get some sort of a bounce back into our Sydney nightlife and the hospitality industry - at last, so hopefully some of these venues will give you some sort of inspiration. If any of the information shared here has since been updated regarding packages/deals please feel free to reach out to me and I will update! Also I would really love to hear where your favourite place is for me to check out?
