    Located high above the city with panoramic views of Sydney Harbour, this exclusive enclave offers cosy niches and fabulous cocktails. Alice in Wonderland is just one of the signature cocktails to try.

    For a million dollar view and arguably the best cocktails in the city, head to Blu Bar on 36, a New York-inspired drinking den on the 36th floor of the harbourside Shangri-La Read more

    Very expensive cocktails in this surprisingly small bar. The view is amazing. Worth doing once.

    Great views across the Harbour Bridge and Opera House, but tired decor tending toward tacky and not a great ambience. :-\
