Sydney’s CBD bar scene is poised to reach new heights with the recent opening of Bar 83 at Sydney Tower. Replacing a former event space (STUDIO Sydney Tower), Bar 83 is located on Level 3 of the iconic Sydney Tower, 245 metres and 83 floors above street level, making it the highest bar in the city. Designed by renowned Sydney studio, Loopcreative, the striking décor, with subtle hints of retro nostalgia and spectacular floor-to-ceiling windows, affords sky-high revellers a 260-degree view of Sydney’s glittering cityscape.
Award-winning bartender and beverage director, Jenna Hemsworth (pictured above), takes the helm as Venue Manager at Bar 83. Named Australian Bartender of the Year in 2018 and ranked Top 16 in the Bacardi Legacy Global Cocktail Competition in Amsterdam the same year, Jenna spent three years with the Swillhouse hospitality group curating cocktail lists and beverage offerings at their stable of renowned Sydney venues, including The Baxter Inn and Restaurant Hubert.
Taking on a culinary approach, Jenna’s cocktail list for Bar 83 will champion Australia’s seasonal produce and ingredients with international influences. Think impeccable classics that are simple, minimalistic, and modern in aesthetic, but bold and innovative in technique and flavour.
“We have one of the most beautiful cities in the world and I’m incredibly excited to lead the creation of a brand-new, world-class destination bar, located on top of Sydney. Merging impeccable drinks, food, fit-out, service and views, Bar 83 will offer an unmatched and unforgettable experience, set to WOW,” said Jenna Hemsworth.
The drinks list will be complemented by a contemporary bar food menu curated by Mike Dierlinger – Head Chef of sister venue, Infinity at Sydney Tower – featuring share plates and Australian classics.
