The Lounge


We’re thrilled to announce that we’re preparing to reopen our iconic harbourside restaurants, Opera Bar and Opera Kitchen from Wednesday 13 October. 

The health and safety of everyone at the Opera House is always our top priority. We will be operating in line with the NSW Public Health orders in place at time of opening.

We look forward to sharing more information about the reopening of our other dining venues, theatres, tours and retail outlets soon. We appreciate your ongoing support and understanding.

A brand new space inside the Opera House to relax before the show

The Lounge is s a place for visitors to relax, eat, drink and learn more about the Opera House, its Resident Companies and our Renewal projects.

Relax with new comfortable lobby-style seating whilst enjoying a café-style menu by day and a pre-theatre offering of light, supper-style food by night. 

Trippas White Group, who also manage Portside Sydney, is the experienced team behind the food and beverage service, so you can expect high quality service and a fantastic menu developed by Ambassador Chef, Karen Martini.
