Henry Deane at Hotel Palisade, located in Millers Point, is the perfect venue for Friday night drinks, birthdays with a view or simply a cocktail at sunset. The cocktail lounge of the venue takes up levels four and five – experience crisp views stretching from Darling Harbour to Circular Quay. On a perfect summer’s day you won’t see the Sydney Harbour Bridge look any better. The drinks menu matches the luxury of the venue, with the bartenders given creative license to create a special every week which rarely puts a foot out of line. If in doubt, the ‘Incantatious’ cocktail with the Peruvian Pisco is always a winner. The Henry Deane isn’t cheap, but what is in Sydney anymore? So you may as well do it in style, and with a view to boot.
