About this space

Located in The Rocks, 55 George is the rooftop event space of Rydges Sydney Harbour, a 1926 heritage site formally known as Harrington’s Building, and associated with the very beginning of the British colonization of Australia.

This hidden gem, recognized for its charm, is one of the few rooftop event spaces in Sydney to offer spectacular views of the city’s two most iconic landmarks: the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Allow your guests to enjoy a generous selection of canapés prepared with locally-sourced produce, made fresh on-site by our team of chefs.

You also have the option of indulging in a premium BBQ experience, cooked in front of guests by your very own chef.

Accompany that with a glass of bubbles, wine or beer from our list of predominantly Australian beverages, and you’re set for an unforgettable experience.
