From intimate wine bars to cosy underground hangouts, January welcomes all kinds of wondrous new watering holes to Sydney. So, whether you’re after cocktails and a bite or wine with a beautiful view, these are the new bars in Sydney your 2020 calendar is crying out for.


The Rooftop at Cruise

Sydney hotspot Cruise Bar has had a massive makeover and now includes a stunning event space – The Rooftop at Cruise. Matching the iconic backdrop with old school Hollywood opulence and an air of exclusivity to this already beautiful venue. With panoramic views of the city skyline, Sydney Harbour and Opera House, the 400-person space boasts a beautiful setting for your events, a multipurpose layout and endless possibilities.

Level 3, Overseas Passenger Terminal, Circular Quay W, The Rocks

Una Màs, Coogee Pavilion

The other bar opening on Coogee Pavilion’s middle floor, Una Más, is a local wine and tapas bar with a Mediterranean soul. A place where locals can walk off the beach and stop by for a quick bite or get lost for a few hours. The menu is uncomplicated and recognisable, with influences from both Spain and Australia –freshly shucked oysters and eating plancha style.

Level 1, 169 Dolphin Street, Coogee

Will’s, Coogee Pavilion

Coogee Pavilion’s middle floor, that has been five years in the making, is set to open this month with three new venues. Will’s, the Euro-style cocktail bar, transports revellers to another world; a space that exudes charm with a lively energy and bon vivant attitude to drinking. There is a distinctly European feel to the drinks list, bringing together classic flavours from the Italian coast, with refreshing influences from Coogee.

The Old Fitzroy

In the backstreets of Woolloomooloo, The Old Fitzroy is steeped in history.  Affectionately known as ‘The Fitz,’ the pub has been around for over 100 years and has changed hands. Australia’s only pub theatre, which seats 60 people, not much has changed to this beloved pub (minus the carpeting and dining room). Expect all the things you love about a classic pub, good brews on tap and gourmet pub meals by an open fire.
