Insider Double Bay

Much like the InterContinental Sydney Double Bay itself, as a destination Double Bay is unique. A village with a resort-style feel, the busy streets filled with cafes and boutiques remind us we’re just moments from the city, while the tree-lined avenues leading down to the beach have a gentle stillness.

Whatever your stay with us brings, spending a day in our beautiful suburb won’t disappoint. Here are just some ideas.


Take a seat by the window and enjoy breakfast in Stillery Bar & Dining. The world is waking up, with ferry-bound workers heading to their 12-minute water commute to the city, and locals already ticking off errands. You can take a more relaxed approach to the day and when you’re ready, take a stroll along Cross Street. Whether you’re looking for a piece of world-class art, a great new book, or just want to window-shop, you’ll immediately feel welcome. Don’t forget to grab a coffee from one of the many cafes – you really can’t go wrong.


Head to Transvaal Avenue for lunch at one of the restaurants that line this pretty boulevard. Priding itself on providing a luxury shopping experience, away from the bustle of shopping centre malls, even the storefronts have window boxes filled with colourful flowers. Once you’ve ticked the shopping box, wander down to the Marina and Seven Shillings Beach, or head home to unwind at the Rooftop. Trust us – the view alone is worth it.


Kick off the last part of your day with one of our signature gin cocktails at the bar, followed by dinner with us or at one of the many local eateries our concierge can recommend. A nightcap on your private balcony will round off an unforgettable day in Sydney and give you time to ponder – what will tomorrow bring?
