It’s a visual and auditory extravaganza that cannot be missed and for this year, they have gone a step further to celebrate food as well. As part of this celebration, we have rounded up the best dining spots from where you can combine a meal and drink while watching the vivid lights go off.


    Vivid Cruises


    The elegance of Sydney Harbour will be redefined this Vivid Sydney, when numerous 3D projections and light installations grace its vast shoreline. A Sydney Vivid Cruise not only offers the best views in the city but also an exclusive waterfront dining opportunity with your loved ones. Cruise the gentle harbour waters as you indulge in freshly prepared dishes, some enjoyable drinks and of course the unrivalled views of the harbour vistas. A wide range of vessels can be seen on the harbour, including the modern catamaran, the authentic paddlewheeler and a premium glass boat. All vessels have onboard bars and galleys in order to ensure the best experience!

    Opera Bar


    It’s hard to imagine a better place to dine on the harbourfront than at the Opera Bar. With live music every night, a specially curated menu for Vivid with blue themed drinks in collaboration with Bombay Sapphire, this iconic spot will be one of the hottest destinations during the festival. While you sit under the sails of the Opera House watching them change colours and patterns, you can look across to the pylons of the Bridge and witness the Luna Park and Museum of Contemporary Art light up in style! This restaurant puts you right in the midst of all the Vivid attractions, with views of the city’s most famous buildings and vessels as they light up with vivid colours.

    Barangaroo House


    Formerly an industrial port where huge cargo ships would load and unload everything from massive containers to luxury cars, Barangaroo, now, is a thriving playground for Sydneysiders. This entertaining precinct is a popular dining destination and for Vivid Sydney, ChronoHarp and Corpi Celesti will transform it into an exquisite reflection of luminous lights from the sky to the water. The three-storied Barangaroo House is a favourite around these parts. You can enjoy a dinner at one level and then head to the rooftop cocktail bar for drinks, with the Vivid lights in the backdrop.


    Glenmore Hotel


    The title of ‘the best rooftop garden in the city’ has been staying with the Glenmore Hotel for several years now and for good reasons. With sweeping views stretching from the Harbour Bridge and all the way across the Circular Quay, and a vibrant cocktail menu, you can easily spend hours of quality time here. To add to all this and the vivid views, there’s even live music on Sundays,so if you haven't been to this popular joint, you're missing out.




    Sydney’s best dining spots are the ones that boast a diverse menu, exquisite views and an enjoyable ambience. From Vivid Lights Cruises, prominent rooftop bars, fancy diners within heritage buildings and more, your options are endless! All the dinding spots including the ones mentioned on the above list get busy at Lights On, so it is in your best interest that you book in advance.
