Top date ideas: Sydney
Without further ado... here are our top tips for Sydney date ideas:
Head to Lotus Dumpling Bar at Dawes Point where you’ll find Pan-Asian dishes and superbly delicate dumplings. The exposed brick walls and creative lighting set-up create a cosy, laid back atmosphere, and the open kitchen oozes with a palpable energy. Carnivores can make their way to Surry Hills’ Argentinean restaurant Porteno, where the traditional asado will fill your boots up and knock your socks off.
For some old-worldly charm, The Chip Off The Old Block will do the trick. Set in an old church, the bar says yes to the good old times; there are playing cards, bar nuts and a bevy of traditional beverages on offer. With wooden finishes and exposed brick, the space embraces you like a big hug – the perfect spot for a cosy, laid-back date. Or set your sights on the Blu Bar 36, one of Sydney’s most exclusive cocktail lounges. Sip your way through an extensive menu of fine wines, champagnes and cocktails whilst enjoying the views over the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Markets are a great Sydney date idea for newly-matched pairs; the atmosphere is wonderfully at-ease and conversation can ebb and flow with the ambling marketplace. The Bondi Markets is a worthy place to while away an afternoon, as is the Kirribilli Markets. For a slightly more romantic vibe, head to the Liverpool Night Markets, which are held on the first Saturday of the month.

If your date is a film buff, skip the commercial cinemas and head for an arthouse film at the Chauvel or Verona cinemas in Paddington. The Golden Age Cinema at Surry Hills is another classy option – a revamped cinema fit with an elegant bar.
Indulge your thespian side and head down to Walsh Bay for a Sydney Theatre Company production at one of its three venues. Carriageworks is also worth checking out; aside from cutting-edge arts productions, the building itself is something to behold.
There’s something so quintessentially Sydney about getting an ice cream at Circular Quay. Head on afterwards to The Rocks, or bring a basket and throw down a picnic rug at the Royal Botanical Gardens.
