Until further notice, we are open on Friday & Saturday's.

    COVID-19 UPDATE

     

    In accordance with the most recent NSW Government regulations, we have had to adapt our operations, services and opening hours in order to be able to reopen our doors safely – and we thank you in advance for your patience. Until further notice, Atelier by Sofitel is open on weekends, for breakfast and dinner and Esprit Noir Lobby Bar is open on weekends from 7:00am to 3:00pm. Our In-Room Dining Service, however, remains available to hotel guests 24/7.You will find below some examples of the enhanced cleanliness and hygiene measures we have taken to welcome you back safely:

    • New guest physical social distancing measures: in line with the NSW Government guidelines, we have reconfigured the chairs and tables of our bar to allow a maximum average density of 4 sqm per person and a minimum of 1.5m distance between guests and staff – limiting the room capacity to 50 guests at any one time.
    • New training of our team members was rolled out, to help everyone develop the skills and education necessary to protect themselves and you, our guests.
       
    • Enhanced handwashing protocols: all staff are mandated to wash hands correctly and often with soap and water. Guests are also encouraged to wash hands regularly and thoroughly, with posters advising on handwashing techniques displayed in our public washrooms. Hand sanitizer is available to all guests at the entrance of our restaurant.
       
    • Appropriate PPE such as masks and gloves can be worn by our Chefs and food and drink handlers when receiving stock.
       
    • Enhanced cleaning & hygiene protocols in the bar room, with hourly hospital-grade cleaning and disinfecting of all high-touch surfaces such as door handles, lift buttons, handrails, switches, trays, cash registers, and payment terminals. As guests depart each seating, a deep clean and disinfection of all the tables, chairs, and tableware is completed.
       
    • Bar spring-cleaning: before we reopened our bar to the public post COVID-19 closure, our bar and kitchen were thoroughly cleaned to remove dust and disinfect the kitchen, utensils, provisions and containers.
    • Enhanced cleaning & hygiene protocols in the kitchen, with regular hospital-grade cleaning of all high-touch surfaces such as work surfaces, cooking utensils, knives, bells, drawers and trays. Chefs keep a physical distance of 1.5m between each other during all phases of the food preparation. Dishwashing is done in commercial dishwashers at the appropriate high temperatures.
       
    • Food and delivery: fresh food arriving to our loading dock packaged in boxes (eg meat, fish, cheese, eggs, fruits & vegetables) is unpacked in a separate area and disinfected with food-safe wipes, before being put away.
       
    • A contact log of visitor and patron information is kept each night for contact tracing as a condition of entry to our food outlets, in line with the NSW Government’s health, legal and privacy guidelines. Guests who are unwell, even with only mild symptoms, will be kindly requested to leave the premises in order to help protect the health of all guests and employees and minimise the spread of the virus.
    • QR menus have been introduced to minimise touch points
       
    • Contactless payment options are the norm, to minimise touch points.
       
    • ALLSAFE officer: Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour being an Accor ALLSAFE Hotel, we have appointed a special ALLSAFE officer in charge of managing any health or wellbeing concern our guests may have. Should you feel unwell or have any hygiene-related question during your visit, we invite you to contact one of our team members or reception from your room by dialling 9 and ask for the ALLSAFE Officer. We will answer all your questions and advise you on what to do.

  • Sunday to Thursday 5:00pm - 10:00pm
    Friday & Saturday 3:00pm - 10:00pm

    WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

    Do you have table service?

    Yes we do!

     

    Can you book a table?

    Yes, for entourages of up to fifteen, you little socialite you.

     

    Do you only serve champagne?

    We have drops of almost any beverage you desire. But we do recommend some bubbles. After all, it is our specialty.

     

    What are terroirs and why are they in the menu?

    We have a lot of champagnes. Instead of one list as long as the bar, we have ordered each wine from the terroir they were grown from.

     

    Terroirs are the sub-regions within Champagne, France, defined by their different climates, elevation, soil type, density and all these wonderful factor that culminate to give each and every champagne its own quirky character. It is too fascinating to say here but ask the staff, we absolutely love talking about champagne.

     

    Is there parking?

    There is a Wilson Parking facility on 100 Murray Street, or alternatively we offer a valet service if you are feeling fabulous.

     

    Now don't be a cheeky devil, if you are driving be sure to have a designated driver. You can reward the hero with one of Champagne Bar's inventive virgin cocktails.
