So exciting. The Sky Terrace Rooftop Bar at The Star is now officially open, and has been since the start of November 2013. It is important to check the website in advance for date availability. If inclement weather strikes, the bar will be closed. Otherwise, anyone over 18 is welcome on a Friday or Saturday night, unless private functions are on. Be prepared.

Gorgeous ambience


Such a great place to unwind. When you find yourself at the Marquee night club, you just need to head up the escalators to another level - and (Amen) rooftop paradise suddenly finds you.

So fresh


The Sky Terrace is undoubtedly one of the best rooftop bars in Sydney. It feels like Hawaiian paradise at first, yet you have the skyscrapers with Sydney Tower and the Harbour Bridge to remind you of where you are. Otherwise, a trance like state reigns. Million dollar views indeed. Beautiful on a summers night.

The chefs working hard for us hungry Sydney siders


No formal dress by the staff here. See the staff wearing polo shirts and white pants, carrying a tiny bucket around to pick up the drinks. The drinks are served in heavy duty plastic cups too. Love the lounges. It is easy to curl back. So swanky. Would be a good New Years Eve location, and ever so laid back. An upmarket beach style dress fits the bill.

A resort style feeling, and even with the food.


Head on in, and a foosball table is available. There are also two outdoor casino gaming tables with real croupiers. Love the chill out theme, with a high level ping pong style tennis net - together with the choice of two bars.

Champers paradise too


Hurrah, you can actually eat here too. Rejoice Sydney Food Lovers. The nosh is quite cheap, and is food truck style...think to the likes of Eat Art Truck. Went for the Pulled Pork Sandwich ($5) that also came with some coleslaw and BBQ sauce, and it was heavenly. There was probably a little too much sauce on the salty side, yet the best pork I have eaten in Sydney in donkeys years - literally. Fresh salads indeed. It feels like I am staying in a five-star resort complex, and not visiting one. This kind of filled the spot, and was the best fast food that anyone could ever wish for. The chefs were ultra friendly.

Let's have some fun


So were the bar staff, in their laid back resort style uniform. The Midori Lemonade ($8) packed some punch. There could have been a little less ice, yet I did not mind. There was plenty to drink. The views are just priceless. Can't believe it only costed $13 to live a little luxury for about half an hour - to kill some time before meeting friends for the Darling Harbour Fireworks. Don't rush yourself out of there, because you'll find yourself in the main casino area in no time at all.

Like a private sanctuary


Highly recommended, and worth a visit at least once. Loved it.
