The New York-inspired Blu Bar on 36 offers a panorama of Sydney, with prominent views of the Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Darling Harbour.

With the breath-taking views and scrumptious cocktails, the Blu Bar on 36 will leave you with the impression that you’ve died and gone to heaven! Aptly named, this exclusive bar lounge is situated on the 36th floor of the Sydney Shangri-La Hotel and boasts a selection of fine wines, liqueurs, cocktails and champagnes for you to choose from.

You have a choice in seating between the bar and lounge areas, but for a date night, we highly recommend the lounge area. There you’ll find a generous offering of couch-style seats, with some poised strategically near the floor-to-ceiling windows. To secure your spot, you should book in advance, as this gorgeous venue is in high demand!

The Blu Bar on 36 will exalt your senses with to-die-for drinks and scenic vistas that will leave you breathless. We understand conversation is important for a date; however, you can be forgiven for the occasional pauses as you appreciate the incredible view.
