The place to be if you’re looking for a classy and congenial rooftop sanctuary nestled amongst Sydney’s tallest buildings. Not to mention that Old Mate’s Place serves some of the neatest cocktails Sydney has on offer. In the friskier hours of the evening, migrate downstairs to find lofty shelves brimming with ancient books, plants and bottles of expensive alcohol. Traditional chandeliers twinkle, potted palms breathe and chatter hums. Soothe those post-work jitters with a tropical assortment of tequilas and rums. Alternatively, treat your tastebuds to a refreshing mix of sake, watermelon and citrus in the form of The Melody, presented with gorgeous precision. Find an old mate in the comfort of this one of a kind Sydney icon.
