Darlinghurst welcomes new rooftop bar

A new rooftop bar from the team behind The Taphouse has opened in Sydney’s Darlinghurst.

Perched above The Taphouse, Elm Rooftop Bar offers an intimate alfresco escape with an outlook of Centennial Parklands and Flinders Street.

The furnishing and colour scheme highlight the buildings 1920 rich heritage, with a white concrete curved bar top in a charcoal wood black frame taking centre stage.

Elm Rooftop Bar offers a selection of fresh-juiced cocktails and over 20 local indie craft beers also on tap. The food menu boasts a range of share options perfect for groups, including their charcuterie board with a selection of gourmet cured meats and cheeses.

“Elm is not the kind of dark late-night bar you’d usually find in Darlinghurst,” said Elm Rooftop Bar owner Joshua Thorpe.

“We’ve conceptualised an outdoor cocktail and seltzer oasis that can be enjoyed in the afternoons well into the evening.

“Just for the record, we’re still beer lovers through and through, we just wanted to give Sydney something a little bit more edgy and sophisticated.”
