If you’re one to take the journey more than 40 stories up the Australia Square tower, then a few drinks or dinner at the Obar on the 47th floor is going to be one of the best night’s of your time in Sydney! The bar offers unmatched views of Sydney and all of its attractions, and you’re not only taking in the view but a part of it as your wine and dine at over 100 metres above 264 George Street.
Owned by Michael Moore, the Obar is one of Sydney’s premier bars offering a formal atmosphere and an incredible fine dining experience that you simply can’t find anywhere else. All of the cuisines on the menu are tilted toward the healthy eating crowd, with little to no over-oily or heavily sugared meals, but rather vegan options and other healthy nibbles. There’s also a private dining room for those who’d like to make their experience here as tranquil and reserved as possible.
Make a reservation and enjoy the only place where opulent meals and beautiful views combine.
The Food and Healthy Eating Philosophy
Of course, eating hundreds of meters in the sky has its perks, though Michael Moore’s food philosophy has also meant that you’re getting the healthiest meals amongst the clouds too. You’ll find a variety of healthy entrees such as seared scallops, duck leg, glazed salmon and so much more. For mains, you’ll have a variety of fish to choose from along with pork belly, wagyu, lamb rump and a whole lot more.

The dining experience here is also unmatched. The attentive wait staff are always ready to help and being so high up, you’re essentially looking down and out over Sydney as you eat with very little in the way of you, your table and the floor to ceiling windows. There’s nothing that quite compares to the panoramic views of Sydney you’ll find here.
One thing to keep in mind is that there’s a 7.5% service charge added to your bill as a staff gratuity.
The Wine List and Cocktail Menu
As you would expect, you’ll only find the absolute best of the best at the Obar when it comes to wine and cocktails. From opulent $1600 Cabernet Sauvignon to more manageable hundred dollar Pinot Noir, you’ll have more choice available than almost every other bar in Sydney, and even NSW.
You’ll have a choice of wine by the glass or by the bottle here and the assurance that your 360-degree views are also matched with flawless wine and food pairings. It’s part of an experience that’s been curated completely around opulence and exclusivity by owner Michael Moore.
The Bar Menu
The excellent food here continues of you’re sticking to the bar and looking for a light snack, with wild oysters, crisps and crackers as well as spiced kingfish and smoked beef tartare. That said, you can rest assured you’ll still be getting one of the most beautiful views with outstanding food even if you’re not dining at the Obar’s dining space.
The View of Sydney
Of course, one of the primary reasons you’ll be heading up to the lounge bar at Obar is for the views of Sydney, and without a doubt, we’re saying you’ll be impressed. You’ll have uninterrupted views of the Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge and all of the surrounding highrises to keep you entertained and fixated while you wine and dine.
When you combine incredible food, outstanding interior design and a beautiful view of the CBD, you’ll have the ultimate sensory high that can’t be beaten by anywhere else in New South Wales or even Australia.
Bookings at Obar
It’s no secret that Obar is one of the city’s hottest bars, with Michael Moore’s menu and the vivid panoramic views, so booking is essential.
