"What a view! The Shangri-la Hotel." The Rocks Tip by islandtaryn

The Rocks, Sydney: 92 reviews and 150 photos

About two blocks from the Rocks you will find the Shangri-la Hotel. On the 36th floor there is a bar with what may be one on the best views of Sydney Harbor.
The drink menu is incredible! I had something called 'Toblerone' (like the candy). It was decadent! Kahlua, honey, and a mixture of both white and dark chocolate shavings. There was so much chocolate, I had to finish it with a spoon!

Address: Circa Circular Quay
Directions: Walk up the hill behind the Rocks. There is one entrance on Harrington St. I can't remember the street name for the main entrance but it's one more block up the hill above Harrington.
