Our guide to the ultimate night out in Sydney

Sydney is a treasure trove waiting to be discovered. A night out in Sydney can create memories that last a lifetime. As you explore the bars and nightclubs in the city, you will discover hidden speakeasies, popular dance floors, and the best cocktails you’ve ever had.

The Meat & Wine Co. is at the heart of it all, so we know a thing or two about where to go out in Sydney.

Check out our guide to the Sydney nightlife for a phenomenal night out with friends.


A great night out should always start with a relaxed drink somewhere beautiful to warm you into the evening, and there are few places as beautiful as Zephyr.

Found in the Hyatt Regency Hotel on level 12, this nautical-themed bar offers energising and refreshing drinks to get your night started. Order a share platter of flatbreads and dips to ensure you’re not eating on an empty stomach, and enjoy a cocktail or two at one of the very best Sydney bars with a view.

Palmer & Co.

It’s not a night out in Sydney without a visit to a hidden bar, and Palmer & Co is within short walking distance (15 minutes) of Zephyr.

This prohibition-style bar can be found by walking down an alleyway, entering an unmarked door, then heading underground to uncover this 1920s gem overflowing with a vibrant atmosphere, live music, and excellent cocktails.

Tap your foot to the tunes and enjoy a drink or two in this tucked away treasure.

The Meat & Wine Co.

Next, take a short stroll along Bridge Street to find The Meat & Wine Co. – and an exceptional meal.

Whether you’re only looking for a little sustenance, or prefer a full meal during the evening, it doesn’t get more delicious than The Meat & Wine Co. You may choose a table full of entrees and sides to share with the group, or a hearty beef burger or a fillet steak.

Yet food is only half our name, and we consider ourselves to be one of the best bars in town as well. Sink into a light and fresh Raspberry Beret, or nab an ever-popular Espresso Martini to really get the night going.

Marquee Sydney

To finish off the night, you can either take a quick Uber or walk roughly 20 minutes to Marquee Sydney, one of the best places to spend the night on the dance floor working up a sweat.

This nightclub was part of The Star’s massive redevelopment, and now is as swanky as it comes. With a capacity of 1,200 and local DJs, international DJs and acts most weeks, the atmosphere is never anything short of pumping. You might even spot a celebrity at the bar while you’re ordering drinks!

From a relaxed start, taking in the Sydney views to a delicious meal and a night of deluxe clubbing, our guide to the ultimate Friday or Saturday night in Sydney is one to remember. Book your seat at The Meat & Wine Co in Circular Quay or Barangaroo to get started.
