Theatre Bars

Open prior to the start of a performance, and during intervals

Our Sydney Opera House Theatre Bars are the place to meet with friends and family before a show. Enjoy refreshing drinks from the premium beverage list including all Australian wines, sip on a cocktail and snack on the delicious and convenient food options, whilst taking in some of the best views of Sydney Harbour.

Our foyers will be open 90 minutes pre-show for Concert Hall and Joan Sutherland Theatre performances and two hours pre-show for Western Foyer venue performances. Theatre bars will also be open during intervals.

Drinks and refreshments purchased at our theatre bars must be consumed in the designated foyer spaces and cannot be taken into venues unless otherwise advised.

Face masks are strongly recommended for all patrons while inside our theatres and foyers, including during the performance. Please bring your own mask.
