Untied Rooftop Bar is the first rooftop bar to open at Barangaroo.
Take the green stairwell that hugs the outside of the building all the way to the fourth floor or locate the lift from the Exchange Place’s entrance near Bel & Brio.
Inspired by North Queensland, Untied Rooftop Bar reminds you of tropical holidays, balmy evenings and cocktails at sunset. The 260 person capacity venue has a laid back tropical vibe with lush greenery, light and colourful outdoor furniture, inviting booths as well as an indoor space suited for private dining and small groups.
The cocktail list is split into House Faves, Too Easy, True Blues and Old Mate, the latter offering classics such as the Negroni, Mojito and Espresso Martini. Cocktails are given an Australiana theme with names such as The Big Pineapple, Captain Starlight, Hills Hoist, Australian Antidote and the EAC. While the cocktail list is quintessentially Australian in name, there’s a noted absence of Australian spirits in favour of their imported counterparts, the one exception being Mr Black coffee liqueur.
Carrying the tropical/Australiana theme, the Flamin’ Galah is made with gin, house-made ginger syrup, fresh watermelon and lime juice served in a hurricane-like tall glass with a watermelon wedge and plenty of ice. It’s light, refreshing and an ideal sundowner to ease into the evening after a tough day in the office. The Bushranger packs a delicious punch with a combination of bourbon and peach tea, perfectly balanced with Amaro, citrus and simple syrup. Served tall with ice, it’s garnished with a sliced peach and icing sugar-dusted mint sprig.
The spirit list includes a sizeable collection of whisky mainly from Scotland, Japan, USA, Ireland and Canada along with a modest list of agave spirits.
Untied Rooftop Bar is a tropical oasis in the midst of imposing high rise offices and residential properties. All that is missing is a hammock.
