(Sydney, Australia) Tuesday March 8, 2016 – A sky-high cocktail bar with panoramic views of Sydney is set to become the highest bar in Parramatta.

Sitting more than 100 metres above ground level atop the $309-million V by Crown Group, the Sky Bar will offer spectacular views of the Blue Mountains, Sydney CBD and Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Australian property developer Crown Group released the first image of the breathtaking bar this week.

Set to open in summer 2016/17, the Sky Bar features an expansive 275sqm internal bar area, direct lift access, double height ceilings and a 90 sqm outdoor terrace with sweeping 270 degree views.

A stunning glass wall forming a unique backdrop behind the bar service area will take advantage of the bar’s sky high position.

Crown Group Director of Sales and Marketing Roy Marcellus said the new Sky Bar at V by Crown Group would have the best views in Parramatta.

Known as Parramatta’s vertical village, V by Crown Group is located on the corner of Macquarie and Marsden streets, less than 300m from Parramatta Square; Parramatta City Council’s $2 billion, 3-hectare redevelopment precinct and less than 600m from Parramatta train station, Parramatta Heritage Parklands and Westfield Parramatta.

“Parramatta’s workforce and population have increased to include more executive-level professionals looking for a place to unwind and enjoy the view,” Mr Marcellus said.

“There is a huge demand for bars like this in Parramatta; offering luxury style in a relaxed atmosphere.

“The 270-degree views from the terrace have to be seen to be believed,” he added.

Designed by Sydney-based Allen Jack + Cottier and Koichi Takada Architects, V by Crown Group includes a collection of luxury hotel-style suites, a state-of-the-art archaeological showcase and a vibrant alfresco dining and retail piazza on ground level.

The 590-apartment development is scheduled for stage one completion in December.

An official opening date for the top-level bar will be announced later this year.

A limited number of apartments at V by Crown Group are now available to buy.
