The Star, is available for private events.

The Star, Sydney’s only integrated resort, has launched a pop-up rooftop bar in November, envisioned to be the hottest entertainment destination this summer.
The Sky Terrace occupies the balcony adjacent to The Star Event Centre, which is a new state-of-the-art multi-purpose event venue opened earlier this year alongside the integrated resort’s AUD$870 million redevelopment.

Recognising the unique blend of city rooftop space, panoramic harbor views and the call of the Sydney market for new and innovative places to visit, The Star managing director, Frederic Luvisutto, worked with the F&B and Events team to transform it into a spot ideal for after-work gatherings and intimate cocktails.

“Sky Terrace is designed to showcase Sydney at its best, making the most of our impressive city, right on the foreshore of iconic Sydney Harbour,” he said.
The Sky Terrace is open Friday and Saturday evenings until the start of Sydney Festival, a celebration of arts and culture happening January 9-26, 2014, after which it will be opened every evening. Visitors from the CDB can also leverage The Star’s free water transfers on Fridays.

The chill-out space is complete with a resident DJ and a range of F&B options including barbequed meat and sausages, tacos, Movenpick ice-cream and an extensive list of alcohol. Able to entertain 1000 pax, it doubles up as an events space available for exclusive private hire outside of its scheduled operating hours from Sundays to Thursdays until January 9.

During operating nights, section hire is also available and is based on a minimum spend for the space required. Signed on as principal partner of 2014 Sydney Festival, the Sky Terrace will be the official Festival Bar opening daily with section hire still available.
The Star is Sydney’s latest premium entertainment destination with a range of award-winning chefs and restaurants, The Darling – a five-star boutique lifestyle hotel, luxury retail outlets, a 16-room day spa, and casino. The AUD$100 million Event Centre launched this year has the capacity and flexibility for events ranging from conferences and exhibitions to gala dinners, award ceremonies, and intimate concerts. It has hosted A-list acts from all over the world, including the Big Four and comedian Chris Tucker.
