3-Hour Christmas Lounge Bar & Drinks

Barangaroo is Sydney’s hottest Christmas party location for 2022 and it’ all about the views. Take the views up another level with the new on-water Christmas Lounge Bar departing Barangaroo at 7:00pm every Thursday to Saturday over the festive season.

This Christmas party venue is more akin to a cool new lounge by the Opera House, than any Harbour cruise you may have experienced before. The Ocean Deck on flagship `Sydney 2000’ has been transformed into a spacious Harbour Bar where each group receives a premium reserved lounge area, delicious hot and cold canapes, a 3-hour bar package of beer, wine and soft drinks, eco-friendly deluxe bon bons and a DJ to party the night away.
