Daylight savings has kicked in & these are the best sunset bars to visit right nowOct 15, 2018


Winter is coming, but summer is coming sooner! Spring has sprung and brought upon us the much awaited daylight savings. It’s always drab missing an hour’s sleep, but so worth it now that we have extended sunlight every night.

The cold winter took its toll on us with dark days and chilling winds, but no more, please, we can’t take it anymore! Because of this special occasion that brings us both warmer weather and extended daylight, we’ve concocted up some great Sydney bars for you to enjoy the sunshine in and really appreciate some of the greatest views the Darling Harbour has to offer.

So you’ve just come out of hibernation, it’s time to rekindle those friendships, catch up with loved ones and enjoy this sweet weather before the sun burns everyone to a crisp in the summertime.
