A rooftop bar with a secret entrance on top of the State Library of NSW

An open-air drinks spot, aptly named Library Bar, has taken over the unused rooftop area of the State Library of NSW’s historic Mitchell Building.

Once a staff cafe and, more recently, an unused space collecting debris under the sun, the rooftop opened late last year to give the public the chance to enjoy its panoramic Domain and harbour views. Granting newfound access to a previously hidden section of the State Library it has a secret entry off the Domain on Hospital Road according to State Librarian John Vallance, referring to the grand 1930s timber arch door via which customers enter the bar.
