A leaven of million dollar Sydney Harbour views has recently opened at The Star; a chill out mecca called the Sky Terrace Rooftop Bar. Despite the so called 'million dollar' views; the prices for some quality food and drinks on tap is actually stellar.
There is one little caveat: you need to be organised. Why? The Star give priority to private functions. Quite simply, if an event/private function is booked in, and such guests want exclusive use of the Sky Terrace - the general public are not allowed entry on such occasions.
Otherwise Sky Terrace is open every Friday and Saturday night from 5pm. This establishment will be open more frequently during the summer holiday period. Furthermore, if wet weather occurs on any given Friday or Saturday night where this establishment is open to the public, Sky Terrace will be closed.
Priceless views of Sydney Harbour and great times indeed
It is all out in the open. The best time to come here is anytime between 6pm and 7pm. There is an abundance of space to unwind in. As you enter, there are a couple of foosball tables to your right, as well as a couple of real life Casino gaming tables.
There are two bars (one on each end), as well as a stand to buy some cheap food truck inspired healthy food. In between is a high net tennis court, together with an abundance of slick, low colourful lounges.
I went for the pulled pork sandwich for only $5 a pop. The meat was well cooked. It was just divine. Went well with a bit of plain cabbage and BBQ sauce, which was quite tangy. This grub just filled the spot nicely.
A resort style theme is presented. Despite the obvious views of Sydney Harbour, it felt like one was spending some time at a Hawaiian resort. The staff were casually dressed in Nike polo tops and shorts, carrying a tiny bucket when it came to picking up the used cups. Plastic cups are used. Mine was blue as you can see in a couple of the images.
Great service, and a really great night. You feel special to spend some time up here, no matter how long. Priceless views with food and drink for only $13 do not come around for many of us often enough.
