Underneath the Opera House, this bar doesn't just have location, location, location – it's got another couple of usages of the word location and some great food and drink including home made honey beer and a decent selection of local wine. If that's not enough to impress think about the weather (the staff serving in the outdoor bar have to wear sunglasses) and then add to that the live jazz and other live music they tempt your ears with. Sunday afternoons here are one of the things I miss most about living in Sydney.

Opera Bar

Great views. But as a student I was shocked to pay $7.50 for a Redbull. As the energy levels were low, I just stumped up the cash and carried on.
