About Hacienda Sydney
Hacienda Sydney, a truly vibrant venue located at a premier address with stunning views of arguably one of the most beautiful harbours in the world.
During the day, the glass walls of the sun-drenched vista bar open out onto the busy harbour. Enjoy a Cuban inspired menu while watching the ferries float across Sydney’s harbour.
By night, Hacienda is the place to be seen. As the city lights up, unwind, relax and sink into the colourful art deco lounges whilst sipping a classic rum cocktail with a twist. This is definitely the perfect spot to unwind and de-stress whilst enjoying the beautiful views of Circular Quay.
Tropical and inviting by day and a botanical oasis by night, Hacienda is the ideal Sydney Bar.
Great venue, highly recommend.
Fantastic location - great that able to book location - magic views if the harbour
Really impressed with the service and atmosphere. Made for a thoroughly enjoyable party.
Service was very friendly and polite but very slow. Food was yum but I was expecting a Mexican twist which wasn't really evident. Would be nice to do that more obviously considering the name!
Really great time had by all, staff were attentive, lovely and helpful. Would highly recommend this venue for future events.
Everything was lovely o
I booked Hacienda for my birthday drinks for a Saturday afternoon. I had the most special afternoon and the service on the day was impeccable! Food and drinks were fabulous as expected and the decor really does make a nice backdrop for a special event. The only downfall of my whole experience was that I booked online a couple of months in advance, then got a call a few days prior to my booking advising of a minimum spend. It’s not clear on the website what you are booking - I wanted just drinks but apparently online is for food and drinks and has a minimum spend of around $100 per person. This caused me a lot of stress leading up to the event in the week as I was unsure whether I would need to change my plans to accomodate everyone’s budget in my group. Luckily George, the booking manager, was sympathetic to my situation and how unclear it was on the website and managed to sort this issue out for me. I would definitely return and would recommend Hacienda for an event or celebration, however would just call up to book rather than online just for clarification.
We rented the space for a large group function, and were very happy with it. An incredibly beautiful location, and very helpful and friendly bar manager. We really enjoyed the venue, however unfortunately the food we ordered was slow coming out, despite ordering in advance and asking for it to come out sooner. One dish came out at 6:30pm, the end time of our booking when all the guests were leaving, and was largely wasted (especially disappointing considering that the food and drinks are not cheap). Possibly they could have used an extra bar tender also, at some points guests couldn't get drinks as the lines were too long (despite us having booked the space for this large group). We are however very impressed at the consideration and concern of the bar manager about the plastic straws they use at the venue - they removed them for our event, and are hopefully in the process of phasing them out entirely. Overall we loved the space, and the assistance of the bar manager, but were disappointed about the food situation.
There were quite a few issues with orders. The food was quite expensive for pretty standard pub fare. The views are amazing though.
Exceptional service, food , drinks, view. The staff were excellent I will be highly recommending and will be back! Thanks Tenille
Great Vibe for any celebration! We had a great night and service was exceptional
Fabulous night and gorgeous location
I had a booking for a private birthday party at Hacienda. I was surprised that they had a particular area ‘roped’ off for me and had a hostess as well. I think her name was Elizabeth and she was amazing and giving me updates throughout the night about how much my group was spending on drinks and when the food was coming out. She was a tremendous help to me and my group. The area we were given was amazing and there was a great view of the harbour.
We had a wonderful time. Staff were very attentive and drinks arrived in good time. It was a wonderful girls night.
This was a beautiful location for my husbands 30th birthday with really yummy food and drinks. I rated poorly for service because our waitress was not good at taking our drink orders. I had to personally keep leaving our area to request that she come and take drink orders from my guests and this made the night quite fustrating for me because I paid such a large sum of money and I should've been able to relax but I feel like I was constantly taking peoples orders for drinks and then traking down our waitress to order...so not pleasant. However management and other waitresses were lovely when I needed help or had questions. The food was sooo good and the cocktails were a hit amoung guests. Thankyou very much. Michelle Grima
I held my 50th birthday party in the private area here last night. Our French waitress Agatha (sp) was exceptional. She communicated well with me throughout the night, ensuring that that my guests had what they needed at all times, and she kept me well informed as to where I was with my budget. She really helped to make the night smooth and enjoyable! Great space, view and atmosphere. Thankyou!!
Great for all kinds of events. Jason was an amazing teacher and bartender. We definitely enjoyed our experience. Thank you.
It took a long time to get any service. I think you should consider putting on more staff.
I booked a place for my birthday! Everything was amazing!!! The service was really friendly and helpful! I had an amazing time! Thankful
The private area we booked months in advance was not ready by 6:00pm and this was a Sunday. Staff were slow to assist with orders or explain how the night was going to work. Set up area was too small with only 10 seats for 30 guests. They only gave us space after we complained about how small the area was considering the minimum spend was $3000.
Had my bday here last night and was very pleased with the service and seating. Would recommend this place. Great atmosphere.
Cocktails perfectly made. Food was yummy. View is lovely. The let down was the poor service. No follow up from staff. Drinks arrived after food and we had to wait 25mins just to get a glass of wine.
