1. THE NO-EXPENSE-SPARED DATE: BAR MACHIAVELLI

Bar Machiavelli Casual Date

Bar Machiavelli is the sister restaurant to the famous Machiavelli Ristorante, which has become a Sydney institution after 29 years. That alone should impress your special date, however, Bar Machiavelli has its own charm. Positioned in a heritage style warehouse in Rushcutters Bay, it specialises in handmade pasta and classic cocktails. The exposed brick walls feature a montage of projections and the bar is always pumping, making it the place to be and be seen for most of the Eastern Suburbs.

2. THE AFTER-WORK DATE: THE LOBO PLANTATION

Lobo Plantation Casual Date

If you and your partner both work in or near Sydney’s CBD, The Lobo Plantation is the perfect after-work date spot. Just a short trip from Wynyard and Town Hall Stations, The Lobo is an underground restaurant off Clarence St that features quirky, Caribbean décor and 250 different types of rum. Sit back, enjoy the cane light fittings, lush green wall paper and potted plants while you and your partner sip on one of The Lobo’s famous rum cocktails. You’ll truly feel as if you have been transported to another time and place, where you leave work stress behind.

3. THE ‘LET’S BE YOUNG & FUN’ DATE: BIG POPPA’S

Big Poppa's Casual Date

Love hip hop, cheese and wine? If you do, you have something in common with the owners of Big Poppa’s. Kick back upstairs and enjoy industrial décor plus great Italian food, or get funky at the cocktail bar in the downstairs area. Just make sure your date doesn’t mind old school hip hop – that’s all Big Poppa’s plays, which is fair enough because it’s named after the 1994 Biggy Smalls smash hit of the same name.

4. THE SOCIAL DATE: THE TERRACE BAR (AT WOOLLAHRA HOTEL)

The Terrace Casual Date

The Terrace Bar at the top of the Woollahra Hotel (affectionately named the WoHo for short) is a great way to relax in a pub environment that’s still date friendly. A multipurpose space that features a retractable roof, The Terrace Bar is a great way to socialise with Sydney’s best and brightest while sipping on cocktails and enjoying the sunshine. Alternatively, enjoy fantastic and affordable modern Australian pub fare by the fire. Later on you can get down on the dance floor to enjoy the tunes resident DJ’s play each weekend.

5. THE POSH DATE: THE DARLO COUNTRY CLUB

Darlo Country Club Casual Date

Drawing inspiration from Californian country clubs, the DCC, positioned in the heart of Darlinghurst, provides a fun, comfortable setting for socialising, drinking, dinning and maybe even a little dancing. With an ambience of sporting luxury, you and your date can expect an emphasis on service, presentation and quality. Enjoy more intimate areas or the buzzing cocktail bar and dinner, it’s up to you.
