Date Night in Double Bay

By Sydney Local Rachel Anker

Double Bay is a stylish harbour side suburb, located just a 15 minute ferry-ride from the city. Renowned for its open parks and tree linked boulevards, Double Bay offers an array of exclusive boutiques and restaurants and is ideal for anyone looking for a romantic night out with a loved one.


Double Bay

Closest ferry wharf: Double Bay
Getting there: The wharf is conveniently located at the end of Bay Street, the main road running through Double Bay. From the wharf, it’s a 250 metre walk into the centre of Double Bay, where you’ll find the all of the action.

Pre-dinner drinks

Head straight to Mrs Sippy on Bay Street and choose from a delicious range of cocktails while DJs take control of the tunes. With a breezy summer vibe and a beautiful courtyard, this is the perfect venue to get date night started.

Dinner options

Pelicano Restaurant and Bar is located on Bay Street in the heart of Double Bay and serves up a deliciously intimate and sophisticated setting. The centrepiece is a 19-metre copper bar and there’s an impressive cocktail list to match!
Or if pasta is on your mind, Limoncello is a cool and refreshing Italian restaurant located on Bay Street – just like the drink. From the moment you walk in, you’ll feel like you have landed in Italy. The food and wine are bound to impress and if you’re craving something sweet, you’ll be spoilt for choice by the dessert options!
Located just around the corner, on Cross St, is another great date night option. Here you’ll find Pink Salt, a modern restaurant with a refined atmosphere. Drop in for a Modern Australian meal and bask on the patio terrace in the evening sun. Furnished with leather seats, a marble bar and chandeliers, Pink Salt is an ideal location for couples.

Continue the evening

If you’re keen to party on into the evening, The Sheaf is the perfect spot! Located on Old South Head Road, with four bars and constant entertainment, The Sheaf is a staple haunt for the Eastern Suburbs set and only a ten minute walk down Bay Street back to the wharf for a ferry trip under the stars at dusk.
