Millers Point, a dockworker enclave that dates from the early 1900s, is a character-filled neighborhood best explored by touring its bars. Start with a crisp James Boag’s Lager at the Hero of Waterloo (, then stroll past the old workers’ cottages to the Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel (, which brews its own natural ales, such as Nelspresso. A stone’s throw away at the Hotel Palisade (, snag an outdoor seat at the rooftop bar attached to the fine-dining restaurant, which has 360-degree harbor views. Finally, follow the lapping waves to Barangaroo House (, a multilevel dining destination that is Sydney’s latest piece of postmodern architecture. (It looks like three flying saucers have crash-landed on one another.)

The rooftop bar Smoke, at Barangaroo House, serves everything from a classic gin and tonic to a lavender negroni.
