So it's a Friday night and you've planned to catch up with your friends but you don't know where to go or what to do. If you want to impress them then Blu Bar on 36 might be the perfect place.

Blu Bar on 36 is a unique venue located on the 36th floor of the Shangri-La Hotel overlooking both Darling and Sydney Harbours. What makes it unique, is the breath-taking views, as are the cocktails. For chocolate fans let me recommend the Toblerone cocktail, it is awesome.

Most of the cocktails are priced between $15 to $25, with the exception of one cocktail called 'Martini on the Rock' which is worth $10,000 as it includes a diamond for that special occasion. Let management know that you plan on ordering that cocktail before arriving due to safety issues. Don't believe me? Check out there cocktail menu from the official Blu Bar on 36 website.

When you decide to visit the bar I'd suggest getting there early as it does get busy on Friday and Saturday nights. I'd also suggest dressing to impress as there is dress code at the door.

Once inside, you have the choice of settling into the bar area, where you can enjoy the view of the harbour while watching talented bartenders mix cocktails to perfection. Alternatively, find a seat and table in the lounge area, if you are lucky enough to get one near the window, sit back and enjoy the table service, while sipping cocktails and taking in the extraordinary views of one of the best harbours in the world.

If you aren't lucky enough to get a window seat, don't worry all is not lost, when others leave kindly ask if you can move to their seat to get a better view. Usually the staff, are more than happy to help make your night as enjoyable as possible.

Sit back, enjoy the chilled ambiance, soft lounge music, great company, superb cocktails while sitting 36 levels above the city.
