It really is at the end of the wharf. Gorgeous spot. Only dropped in for late lunch snack and were suitably impressed with food and ambience.

To find this bar the first time it helps if you know someone who has been before. Up in a lift, then a long walk down a long corridor with Sydney Theatre Company photos on the walls, at the end of the wharf the bar has a great setting with a wonderful view of the Harbour Bridge. We were there... More

A delightful spot for a pre or post theatre drink or meal but be warned, it can get very (repeat very) crowded and service can be very (repeat very) slow. If however, you simply want to explore the space (and it is worth it for the architecture, view and the theatre posters) you can saunter in during the day for... More

Great views & drink choices. We went for a walk after dinner and stumbled across this bar. What a great setting! The food menu looked great but because we had already eaten we just opted for drinks & enjoyed a jug of Sangria. We will definitely return to this bar on our next Sydney trip.

My wife and I were staying around the corner from this restaurant at the Park Hyatt and were looking for something closeby and casual. It would be easy to miss the restaurant as it's upstairs on the end of a wharf (yes, the hints in the name), however, it on the upper level, which, if you standing on the ending... More

The Sticky BBQ Lamb Ribs were outstanding, as was the Nigerian Spiced Chicken. Both were tender and juicy, and oh so mooreish. We also enjoyed the salt & pepper calamari as a starter. Sssshh... Don't tell anybody about this place as it is a lesser-known little gem which really adds to its appeal. We'll definitely be back!

This is a lovely little bar that not to many people know about although it is starting to get popular. Great views over the harbour. Good food and perfect for before or after performances at the theatres that are in the local area. Warning it can be a bit hard to find and its a long walk to the end... More

A lovely atmosphere before an excellent STC performance. The views are brilliant and the setting excellent. The food was ok however would prefer something a little more filling before a 2 hour performance! All in all... pretty good!

Had a nice pre-theatre dinner here. The place was super crowded, presumably due to Christmas parties and the like, but the atmosphere was still great. We shared a table with a fun bunch of people, so that was very nice. The Middle Eastern bowl I had for main was very tasty, but maybe a tad too small for the price.... More

This informal restaurant and bar is located outside the Wharf Theatre complex on the first floor and indeed at the end of the wharf. It is a bit of a trek from the street access but there is a lift if you need assistance. We have as a group been there some 4 times in the past year. There are... More

Drop by pre- or post-show for a drink or a few share-plates, spend the afternoon on the sofa or just sit on the balcony soaking up the view. The Theatre Bar at the End of the Wharf is for you, come join us.
