A lot of fuss gets made over the Glenmore’s unbelievable harbour views, taking in the majesty of the Harbour Bridge and hooking around past the Opera House sails to the glittering CBD. It’s an easy sell, especially because it proves you don’t need to fork out for a top-tier restaurant for the kind of Sydney vista that belongs on a postcard.
In fact the Glenmore is the sort of place you could make your local, at least for post-work drinks when the rooftop bar gets packed with people loosening their collars and clinking Samuel Adams, a schmiddy of Peroni or a pint of Guinness.
The rooftop is also a ridiculously popular lunch spot on weekends. If you like a Blue Moon or a Budweiser in more secluded surrounds the middle floor has smaller rooms with couches, and out on the street a picnic table is great for people watching. This is a great place for dinner before heading down to enjoy some high brow pursuits in Walsh Bay.
