Smoke on the waterSydney, Australia
Now we don’t want to sway the battle for Sydney’s hottest rooftop bar, but we think Smoke Bar, located at Barangaroo House, is a serious contender. More than just a catchy name, ‘smoke’ is actually a theme that resonates through the food and cocktail menus.
Smoked trout and smoked brisket doughnuts are just two of the smouldering highlights, but it’s the Smoky Martini that’s really worth lining up for. Speaking of, don’t expect to waltz in with your Havvies on after a Bondi sun-sesh – this is the type of establishment with table service and expects guests to dress up for the occasion.
It’s totally worth it though. Smoke proves you can still get the wow factor without a bridge or Opera House vista.
