Yeah, we know, it can be filled with photo happy tourists at times and the cocktails aren't the best, but with views this damn good who gives a sh*t?
The Opera Bar is the best of the harbour front offerings on the stretch between the ferry terminal and The Opera House. This place is made for sundowners, or romantic pre-theatre glasses of Aussie white wine or even so snogs n Sydney rock oysters under the stars.
Try get one of the cushioned seats right on the water's edge, and watch the tiny rows of people climbing the Harbour Bridge. Plus it's a hot-spot for after work drinks, so if guys n gals in suits are your thing then you're laughing, oh and if things work out, take a stroll to the neighbouring botanical gardens for a romantic walk slash quickie in the bushes.
