Byron Bay basedHannah Colless, explores Bondi and surrounds todiscover some of the areas best vino-with-a-view spots!
1 Notts Ave, Bondi Beach, 2026
This elegant oceanside bar almost needs no introduction. Sitting high above the clear blue waters at the southern end of Bondi Beach, Icebergs has been an iconic eastern suburbs destination for years. With a selective wine list, extensive cocktail list, and Italian-inspired bar menu, Icebergs Bar offers everyone a taste of true Sydney luxury for the price of a Prosecco.
169 Dolphin St, Coogee, 2034
The view alone makes Coogee Pavilion, or The Pav as its affectionately dubbed, one of the most loved venues across Sydneys east. And its famous pizzas, on-point cocktails and huge outdoor terrace (complete with an awesome crowd, sunshine and sea breezes) regularly attract people from all over the city. The Pav is one of those elusive venues where one innocent wine inevitably leads to a bottle of champagne, a bunch of new friends, and a sneaky round or two of espresso martinis.
1/80 Campbell Parade, Bondi Beach, 2026
Hidden up an unassuming staircase on Campbell Parade, this little gem is easy to miss for the novice Bondi-goer. But upon entering youll find a charming little tapas bar staring straight out to sea. The menu is packed with quality wines, seasonal cocktails and mouth-watering dishes to graze on. Smaller and more intimate than the average Bondi venue, Vue bar is ideal for date night or a catch up with your bestie.
1 Military Rd, Watsons Bay, 2030
Overlooking the sparkly water of Watsons Bay, this sprawling, sun-drenched venue is the sort of place that reminds Sydneysiders why they live in Sydney. Spread over three levels with equally breathtaking views, Beach Club perfect for big groups wanting to let the afternoon pass by over some bottles of bubbly and plates of antipasti.
Bondi Pavilion, 1 Queen Elizabeth Dr, 2026
Smack-bang in the centre of the beachfront promenade, this is about as close as you can get to sipping cocktails on Bondi beach. With a big outdoor area just metres from the sand, as well as panoramic views from inside, The Bucket List is one of Bondis ultimate venues for casual beachside wining and dining. Attracting a mix of salty-haired locals fresh off the beach, with more glammed up groups thirsty for champagne and cocktails, you can always rely on The Bucket List for a colourful crowd and general good vibes.
