Theatre Bars

In line with decisions made by the National Cabinet as communicated by the NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, our venues, restaurants and Theatre Bars have closed to the public until further notice to help protect the health of all visitors and staff and minimise the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in the State.

Thank you for your support and understanding at this time. We look forward to welcoming you or your guests to the Sydney Opera House in the future.

Mix and mingle before the show

Our Sydney Opera House Theatre Bars are the place to meet and mingle with friends and family before a show. Enjoy refreshing drinks from the premium beverage list, sip on a cocktail and snack on the delicious and convenient food options, whilst taking in some of the best views of Sydney Harbour.

Joan Sutherland Theatre and Concert Hall Theatre Bars are open 90 minutes before each show and during intervals. Western Foyer Theatre Bars are open pre-theatre for all performances.


You can also pre order your food and drink options when purchasing your tickets online to beat the queues.


Note: products may be limited.

Pre-order your interval drinks

Ensure your drinks are ready for you as soon as interval starts so you can soak up the views and not have to worry about waiting in a queue.

When you arrive to the theatre bars at the Opera House before the show, ask the bartender about pre-ordering your drinks for interval. They will record your name upon purchase and advise your pick up location for the interval of your performance. 

Available at the Southern, Northern and Western foyer bars at the Sydney Opera House.
