What’s better than having a super fun and uniquely exciting event in Sydney? Having a fun and exciting event that’s outdoors! With summer approaching, what more could you want than enjoying the company of friends, family or colleagues outside in the sunshine? We’ve found some of the best outdoor event venues Sydney to save you search time.

The Governor Hotel, Macquarie Park

First up, we have this incredible rooftop located on the top of Governor Hotel. It’s a sun drenched space that’s absolutely perfect for celebrations, corporate events or sunset drinks. Basically, you’ll have your own bar area, festoon lighting, seating, raised deck area, the world of opportunity opens to creative styling, activations & takeovers. 

Beachside Dojo, Manly

Need somewhere bright and vibrant for an intimate celebration? This is your spot. Located in Manly, the Northern Dojo is designed for smaller events such as birthdays, corporate events, receptions and private dining. There’s a stunning outdoor balcony perched among the vines overlooking the beach. It’s picture perfect!

The Park House, Mona Vale

This garden bar in Mona Vale is as flexible as you would want. We know Sydney weather can be a bit temperamental. Rain or shine, this outdoor space is the perfect oasis. So, on gorgeous summer days, the giant sunroof is rolled back for you to bask in the sunshine and enjoy the fresh air.

Well we wouldn’t mind being invited to an event here. With its world renowned architecture and incredible panoramic views, this rooftop is the perfect summer venue. Enjoy a cocktail party, product launch, corporate event, lunches and more right on Australia’s most iconic beach. There’s also a state of the art AV system that comes in handy.

When we think of summer, we think of Watson’s! Framed by unobstructed views of Sydney Harbour, Mid Deck at Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel is a gorgeous open space that caters to all kinds of occasions. There’s also the option of having a pop-up bar for your guests to enjoy effortless access to some refreshing drinks.

Another one of our favourite venues means another rooftop! The Rooftop at the Imperial is unlike anything else in Sydney. Whether it’s a birthday, corporate event, brand activation, hens or bucks, you get to eat and drink in the most aesthetic and vibrant space in town.

Up on the fourth floor you’ll find Taylor’s Rooftop Bar, a gorgeously green space to celebrate! There’s a vertical garden and the city skyline. Together they frame a lush party oasis where open-air good times can be conveniently sheltered by a retractable roof. Without a doubt, it’s all about light, bright bar food and refreshing cocktails at Taylor’s.
