Sydney welcomes new hop-on hop-off floating gastro-pub and restaurant

Captain Cook Cruises has launched Harbour Bar & Restaurant, the city’s first ever hop-on hop-off floating pub and dining experience.

Once a boat purpose built for sightseeing and overseas visitors, Captain Cook’s flagship vessel Sydney 2000 has received a unique facelift with two distinct experiences spread across an upper and lower deck.

The new Harbour Bar concept will be open from 12pm to 10:30pm each day, stopping in 90-minute intervals at King Street Wharf, Darling Harbour and Circular Quay both collecting and disembarking guests.

Captain Cook Cruises general manager Anthony Haworth said the Harbour bar and dining experience “hasn’t been done before”.

“Our new Harbour Bar and Restaurant aims to deliver a waterfront bar and dining experience with the perfect blend of relaxed, casual but stylish ambience, fresh local produce and spectacular views,” he said.

“Our new Harbour Restaurant redefines the waterfront bar & dining experience on the world’s most beautiful harbour in one of the world’s most sophisticated cities.”
