Named after the 1938 flying boats, our water-front space is part seaplane lounge, part luxurious lounge and cocktail bar. With our cocktail deck flowing out over the harbour in Rose Bay, we guarantee that not only is there currently nothing like it in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, there never will be. Sip on some bubbles and enjoy our fresh seafood bar while taking in the immaculate waterfront views.

Whether you are looking to book in a corporate board meeting, or host your next big event, the Empire Lounge is the place to be. Located right next to the Rose Bay wharf, the Empire Lounge is easily accessible to and from the CBD. We have a full crew of event staff that will ensure that all of the fine details from catering, wine choices, and décor are taken care of.

We provide in house catering, a fully stocked bar and an impeccable wine list from around the globe. We have packages that range from corporate meetings of 10, to standing canape functions of up to 160 guests.

If you want to fully experience the flying boats of Sydney first hand, ask our staff about our scenic flights over Sydney’s Iconic harbour and pristine beaches to check it off your bucket list. Our flights run daily throughout the year, and it is a great way to take in the city below.
