Date Night: The Most Romantic Bars In Potts Point

When planning a romantic date night, Kings Cross might not be the first place that springs to mind. But just around the corner from this infamous, buzzy strip is the small suburb of Potts Point, where you'll find an array of elegant and intimate bars that really set the scene for romance. This leafy enclave ticks all the right boxes in the date department. 

If the cliché is true that “Potts Point is like Paris” and Paris is the city of love, then this suburb is definitely worth a glass (or two) of Champagne, followed by an amorous after dinner stroll. With French-inspired bars like Rosé Royale and Monopole, you and your beau will almost certainly be leaving très loved up. Here's our pick of the best for guaranteed romance. 

Rosé Royale

Nestled in the leafy streets of Potts Point is Rosé Royale, the world’s first rosé wine bar. Choose from a selection of over 50 rosés from countries around the world like New Zealand, Turkey, Spain and of course, France. The interiors are luxe with leather booths and marble tables. But the pièce de résistance is it's cosy courtard, perfect for date night with fairy lights, blankets and a swinging chair for when you want to cuddle up to your special someone.  For a night to remember - go all out with their Rosé Degustation, you won't regret it.

The Butler

With high ceilings, botanical wallpaper and wicker furniture, The Butler's restaurant has a chic French colonial vibe. But for the ultimate date night, head to the lush terrace, which has panoramic views of the Sydney skyline. The menu is made up of small and large share plates, and the cocktail list is guaranteed to get the conversation flowing.

Dear Saint Eloise

This Potts Point wine bar has the date night brief down to a tee. The shelves are lined with 400 bottles of wine from around the world, and there’s a sommelier on hand to help you choose a delicious drop. The best bit? It serves small share plates until 11.30pm, just in case you get carried away with conversation…

The Roosevelt

Glammed up prohibition-style gives this Potts Point speakeasy amorous appeal. Sink back into leather-backed chairs and hide from the world for a few hours, for an intimate date night. American-style tapas, vintage cocktail equipment and a private poker den – The Roosevelt comes seeping in nostalgia.

Another Potts Point gem, Monopole is a small bar that ticks all the right boxes: good food, great wine and friendly service. The interior is contemporary, dimly-lit and beautifully designed. It strikes the balance between luxe and relaxed, and locals love it. The 500-strong wine list has something for every palate, and the tapas-style menu is a foodie favourite that changes seasonally. It’s made for sharing, so go ahead and order a feast before finishing with dessert.
