Hotel Palisade is not necessarily one for the kids, but if you’re a consenting adult who savors a good cocktail, likes a rooftop, and appreciates a view, welcome home. The building, just beneath the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge in Moller’s Point, lay dormant for years. After a stunning restoration, antique touches, like old rotary-dial telephones and Roberts radios, are juxtaposed with a clean maritime color scheme and incredible views of the city. PSA: The hotel doesn’t serve breakfast—which is fine, as Sydney invented brunch—but for dinner, the restaurant delivers, and the Henry Deane cocktail bar cannot be beat for its Negroni and that view.
