The Whirly Bird is a great restaurant if you love a chicken based menu but on a Saturday night they present The Birdcage, an evening of cabaret and burlesque with a three course menu. This could be a fantastic date idea in Sydney for you to check out.

2. Visit A Pirate Bar At Peg Leg In Pyrmont

I know a lot of people think the entertainment scene is purely housed at The Star but there are some great pubs in Pyrmont that are a must visit!

Que… Peg Leg, a pirate themed bar on Pyrmont Bridge Road. Expect to see bar staff dressed in their best breton stripes serving up great Spanish beers and of course a seafood menu.

3. Play $1 Roulette At The Star Casino In Sydney


I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely partial to watching my $20 slowly decline over half an hour of playing roulette in The Star Casino. At just $1 a pop, have a bit of fun in Australia’s second biggest casino (after Melbourne’s Crown casino), whilst you’re killing time waiting for lunch or dinner.

4. Grab A Drink At A Cosy bar


Gallon in Pyrmont is a great place to grab a bite to eat with a sharing menu consisting of large plates to choose from. The best part is the vibe, it’s got a lively afterwork atmosphere with an earthy décor that’s interspersed with wooden tables and greenery everywhere.

6. Learn How To Cook At Sydney Seafood School

The Fish Markets has to be on every list for things to do in Sydney for tourists so it would be weird if we didn’t include it onto this one. There’s quite a few tours you can go on and even learn how to cook there at the Sydney Seafood School!

7. Check Out The Pyrmont Growers Markets

Located in Pyrmont Bay Park from 7:30-12pm every 4th Saturday of the month, you’ll find the Pyrmont Growers Market. Offering up farm to table produce, this is an opportunity to support the nearby local farmers and buy super fresh food and a great casual date idea in Sydney.

8. See A Show At Sydney Lyric Theatre

Constantly showing big-hitters, the beautiful Sydney Lyric Theatre has housed some of the best opera, ballet, musicals, concerts and theatre since it opened 15 years ago. From Muriel’s Wedding, Billy Elliott and more, the Lyric is one of Sydney’s best loved theatres.

Located in The Star, you won’t have any problem finding some good pre theatre dinner spots and after show drinks.

9. Wine & Dine At The Famous Momofuko Seiobo

If you’re looking for things to do in Pyrmont, make sure you go and eat at three hatted restaurant in Pyrmont Momofuko Seiobo. Named after the Japanese Goddess of the West, expect to find only a tasting menu which takes about 2 hours to eat and costs $185 pp.

If that sounds like a hefty price to pay just for dinner, opt for the bar menu that offers up small and large plates for around a reasonable $24. They also offer up a pre-theatre menu if you’re heading over to The Lyric Theatre 😉

10. Go on TV


If you’ve ever wanted to be in the audience for a TV show, The Project often film at the Channel 10 Pyrmont Studios. Find out what goes into filming the popular TV show and be in the audience yourself!

11. Rock Out At A Live Gig

Rock Lily is The Star’s live music venue but don’t go thinking it’s just rock music they offer, you’ll find a mixture of different types of music throughout the week. From RNB nights, reggae, rock cover bands and karaoke, Rocky Lily is a venue that would suit most people’s music tastes. And did we mention they have a massive selection of tequila as well?

12. Eat The Best Japanese Food In Sydney

If you’re looking for the best Japanese restaurant in Sydney, fear not, we’ve found it for you! Unsurprisingly situated at The Star, Sokyo has a simplistic interior to allow for the food to take centre stage.

Mains start from $40 and sushi rolls for example, a classic salmon avocado is $14. Sokyo would make a fantastic date night restaurant in Sydney and would impress like no end.

13. Drink At One Of The Oldest Pubs In Sydney


In the three decades since it called last drinks, The Terminus has become one of Sydney’s favourite abandoned buildings. When it closed in 1984, ivy literally grew over most of the building.

Since it reopened in 2018, you’ll find a menu consisting of pub classics like Chicken Schnitzel and Steak&Chips and various function rooms including the gorgeous Vera’s Cocktail Lounge.

13. Impress With The Views
