We're excited to welcome you back to the Opera House with the opening of Opera Bar.

The health and safety of everyone at the Opera House is always our top priority. Opera Bar will be operating in line with the NSW Public Health orders, staff will be wearing masks and check-in processes will be in place for verifying proof of vaccination.

Live performances are also returning in late October. We look forward to sharing more information about the reopening of our tours, retail outlets and our other dining venues soon.

Celebrate Sydney every day at Opera Bar

With the Sydney Opera House as its backdrop and picture perfect views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, it is not surprising that Opera Bar has become a favourite Sydney experience.

Reflecting the spirit of Sydney, Opera Bar is relaxed and stylish with a sunny disposition that celebrates the seasons and shares local favourites. Showcasing Australian suppliers and provenance, freshness and seasonality infuse everything they do from spritzy cocktails and crisp pale ales to their light and seasonal menu with a seafood focus. 

Come by the water's edge and enjoy al fresco wine and cocktails or watch chefs shuck oysters and grab a few plates to enjoy with friends. On evenings and weekends live music and DJs provide the perfect soundtrack to your long lunch, after work drinks or catch ups.

Opera Bar is the perfect destination for firsts, finales and everything in between. 

Curated by renowned celebrity chef Matt Moran

If you’re an Australian, you know Matt Moran. We’ve seen him on our screens on the global television sensation MasterChef, we’ve cooked masterpieces from his recipe books, and we’ve filled our bellies with delicious food from his many restaurants including Aria, Chiswick, Barangaroo House and more.  And, because as Australians we can’t help but share the best of what our country has on offer, the Sydney Opera House couldn’t be prouder to share Matt’s culinary magic with millions of people from around the world at the one and only Opera Bar.

With a warm and welcoming atmosphere, Matt’s oversees the creation of menus at Opera Bar which have an emphasis on Australian produce and support of local suppliers. Drop in for a bite, your taste buds will thank you.
