Cocktails Above the Sydney Harbour Bridge at Blu Bar on 36

As one of Sydney’s hotels of distinction, the Shangri-La Hotel Sydney offers impeccable service and delightful environments.  This luxury accommodation is one of the finest in the city, offering a priceless view over the city’s most famous landmark, the Sydney Opera House. 

At the 36th floor of the Shangri-La Hotel Sydney, guests will find one of the most exclusive cocktail lounges and restaurants in the city.  The aptly named Blu Bar on 36 delivers the optimal view over Sydney, placing guests high enough to admire the space where the deep blue of night sky meets the refreshing blues and greens of the ocean.

Inspired by the cosmopolitan style of a New York cocktail lounge, the Blue Bar on 36 tastefully blends classic style with modern sophistication.  Sweeping panoramic glass windows allow plenty of light to penetrate the space, even as night falls and the city comes alive.  Visitors relax in lush fabric chairs, sampling a wide variety of exclusive cocktails.

The Blu Bar on 36 also permits guests to take the world-class cocktail experience home with them.  Private cocktail classes are offered frequently, placing guests with some of Sydney’s most renowned mixologists.  Each two-hour session teaches visitors everything they need to know in order to deliver the perfect drink.

After an exciting day of exploring Sydney, many guests of the Shangri-La Hotel prefer a trip up to the 36th floor to cap off their night.  The Blu Bar on 36 offers a unique selection of refreshing cocktails to put the finishing touches on any visit.  The signature cocktail, Madame Devine, is a splendid combination of sweet and refreshing.  Gin is blended with apple and peach liquers, rose syrup, elderflower cordial, and a dash of egg white.  Shaken twice and garnished with a rose petal and cucumber slice, it’s the perfect drink for savouring that amazing view of the harbour.
