It takes a particularly exceptional plate of food to draw your attention away from this view, but the chefs at 360 Bar and Dining have mastered the culinary challenge. Set 88 stories above the business district streets, this rotating restaurant ensures that every corner of Sydney is visible right from your table. Begin with an appetizer of kangaroo carpaccio while watching the sun set over the Blue Mountains, and by the time you finish lapping up the jus from a heaping plate of duck confit, the twinkling lights of Sydney Harbor will seem to write in cursive along the shoreline.
If the expansive view still has you in its grasp even once the meal is complete, grab a drink at the golden shell bar to literally drink in the urban elegance of one of the most magnificent sites in Sydney.
360 Bar and Dining is located on the first floor of the Sydney Tower, 88 stories above the CBD streets. Lunch hours are from noon to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, and dinner is served between 5:30 and 9 p.m. daily. For the best views, visit at sunset.
