Sweethearts Rooftop, is the quintessential rooftop bar, nestled high above the bustling Darlinghurst Road.
This hidden gem is a space, loved and treasured by locals and first timers alike.

With a relaxed chilled vibe and a stunning vista of the local skyline, be it a quick pizza, washed down with a cheeky Corona, or an afternoon of Garden Party cocktails with the girls, Sweethearts Rooftop is the perfect space for any occasion.

Worried about the weather? with a retractable awning to keep the rain off and full venue misters to beat the heat (and heaters to cozy up to), we will have you dancing to our funky DJ's tunes come rain, hail, or shine.

So I guess the last question is, what are you waiting for?

This is not what I was expected. We didn’t know that all good and drinks had to be ordered at the bar. We were sitting for 15-20 minutes before we went to the bar and asked. Food was good tho. Drinks were great.
Very young crowd.

Went for the first time on Sunday, and the music goes off! I would say the music and the vibe is the best thing about this place.
Food is pretty average, pizza and burgers only.
Cocktails are very expensive and very small. Would come back again after having pre drinks else where.

Good place to hangout with friends, we went on a weekday and there were only few people. They have weekend menu separately and on google maps menu nowhere it's mentioned that the menu we are looking is for weekends only.

I was disappointed in the espresso martini cocktail I paid 19$ for. It was very small and didn't contain any espresso and the rose wine ran out. Everything else was good :)

I booked a table online for a hens night for 12 people. When we arrived we had two tables seperate to each other and there were only 8 seats. Lucky enough some lovely people moved for us but there were 12 of us huddled around 2 tiny tables. Where there were other long tables that other groups had gotten together when they had booked as well and other tables that would of suited us perfectly that were reserved for hours with no one there. Was a little disappointing that we assumed we would all be able to sit together but we ended up squished and uncomfortable. The bar staff where great and so was the food it was just disappointing booking a table and turning up to that.

Nice rooftop bar with good ambiance and attractive wood finishes and plants. Delicious and affordable pizza. Great for a catch up with friends or a date. Can get quite busy so book a table. Choose seating wisely as some seating is near loud speakers which make conversation impossible, we were lucky in that there was another free table and moved there where there was much less noise.

Great customer service, music, venue. Only minor issue was some judgie people who, after a few drinks, seemed to have an issue with my son being there.. they must not have realised kids are welcome in Sunday’s..I didn’t know them.

The film started an hour later than advertised and we had to ask them to put it on meaning we could stay to watch the full film pizzas were really nice though

Came to watch Bridesmaids for their Rooftop Cinema promotion. A few glitches during the movie but otherwise good vibes and a fun atmosphere. Free popcorn was a nice touch. Pimm’s was good but Nutella Pizza has a really dry crust and not enough Nutella/strawberry (not tasty).

My colleagues were suspicious of the place based on the name, but once we got there, they were all extremely happy. The male staff member from Italy dealt with my group's needs expediently and effectively.

It was great except half the audience couldn’t see the movie because of poor seating. If you go here to watch the cinema you can’t count on seeing too much.

I had booked a table for my birthday and when I got there, there was no reservation on my name. The staff promptly moved some groups of people and provided me with a table, not for the number of people I had booked but. In the end everything was sorted out and I had a great night.

I booked through the hotel website for eight people. It didn't give me any options to select occasion or to choose where I wanted to be seated. On the day, eight of us were directed to the bar/bench seats, facing the kitchen. It was a birthday occasion and it was absurd to be given those seats, we wouldn't be able to share food or even look at one another! If they told me beforehand I would've cancelled the booking and found another place. I requested for a table and was told that they were fully booked, but when I insisted, they actually had a free table and offered it to me. So why reject it in the first place when it was free the whole time? and why would anyone think it's a good idea to have eight people sitting side by side for dinner?

Went for the Sweethearts Rooftop Cinema, nice vibe, was a weeknight so very quiet however quite a few patrons making the atmosphere fun.
Seats aren’t really built for sitting in for 2+ hours but this would be the only complaint and it’s minor.
Food was excellent- no healthy options except the prawns which were AMAZING, mostly italian comfort food and burgers.
Fun for a friendly get together or ideally a really
nice date night.

Great rooftop bar, shame that they wouldn't put the AFL game on when no one was watching the surfing. About 10 of us asked and took the manager 25 minutes to put it on. Service was a bit slow and unenthusiastic in general.

This place decided to close early and we were turned away even though we had reservations booked. Waste of time.

The food was nice but we found the staff very unhelpful. I booked a table for 7 and was given a cramped table for 4 with 5 chairs, I later had to approach the staff to advise that I had booked for more people and we were offered a 2nd seperate table, but only once the additional guests had arrived (despite me showing proof of my booking). Their general demeanour was unfriendly and I felt awkward on occasion approaching them for any assistance. Multiple occasions I stood at the empty bar waiting to be served whilst staff either chatted amongst themselves or ignored me. Very nice venue, it is a shame that the staff let it down.

Booked a table in advance, although that was a waste of time. We were seated wherever they could find a spot. Spent more time worrying about the larger function there. Cocktails are not worth the price.

After eating a full meal waiting for our movie, they didn’t have it (how do you lose a movie?) they put on top gun instead - however it had no sound! Whole reason for going was to watch a classic movie in the open air. Sadly we left

Unfortunately they were extremely unorganised for the movie (which is strange because they run these regularly). But they lost the DVD disc of the original movie, chose another movie and then failed to get the sound working. Probably didn’t get a movie going until 2+ hours after the start time... the food was average other than the aranchini balls which sold out. Was really looking forward to the Mexican food which was advertised when I initially booked the movie night.

On arrival my reserved table waa occupied by others. They moved us to another table in the middle. Would have been nice to have a view nearby the window. Other than that it was great.
