Embrace your inner bartender at Opera Bar

Escorted by your own personal Sydney Opera House guide from Stage Door, start your journey with a cocktail-making class hosted by one of Opera Bar's master mixologists. Learn to craft a House favourite, the Sydney Sling, and then take a moment to enjoy your creation over a fresh seafood tasting plate – courtesy of their in-house Raw Bar.

Get hands on at House Canteen

Make your way to Sydney's all-day, canteen inspired dining venue for dumplings and beer. Then learn something new and enjoy an open air chef-led class on how to master hand-rolled sushi. The best part? You get to eat it afterwards.

Settle in for a leisurely lunch at Midden by Mark Olive

Midden by Mark Olive, our newest venue with an Indigenous Australian inspired menu, will dish up braised wallaby shank with a range of sides, paired with matching wine. We can't think of a better spot for lunch with some of the Sydney's best harbourside views.

Come behind the scenes between courses

Entering through Stage Door, you will be led through backstage spaces and onto the Boardroom balcony, where you will be served Sgroppino, a citrus sorbet palate cleanser with Archie Rose gin and Prosecco as you enjoy the uninterrupted views of Sydney Harbour. 

Indulge in dessert and jazz at Bennelong

Last stop is under the sails at Bennelong Restaurant for a signature dessert by Executive Chef Peter Gilmore. Indulge in the iconic Bennelong chocolate crackle, a decadent dessert full of flavour, texture and a bit of nostalgia. 

This indulgent dessert is paired with a signature cocktail and music performed by Australian jazz musicians as part of the Bennelong Presents Sunday Jazz series. Fancy a last drink? You’re welcome to purchase as you go.
