A hidden rooftop: East Village Terrace

It’s worth the climb to drink up on the rooftop of this jazzed-up pub

We don’t need to tell you how much Sydney loves a rooftop bar, and the top floor addition to the East Village Hote is an A-grade, lofty drinking perch. Sure, if cardio isn’t your friend you may even find you have to take a breather at the second floor, but that’s not going to be a problem because that you will at the top worth the effort.

Now you’ve had a rest, onwards and upwards so you can arrive victorious at the secluded garden bar on the top floor. It’s not a huge space, so arriving before the crowds is always a smart plan of attack. And it’s a bit frillier up here, so don’t be surprised if you’re sat at a table fully set for dinner, even if you’re just there for a tart-and-autumnal blood plum Margarita and views of the CBD.
