Skygarden is another shopping complex that joins onto the northern end of Pitt Street Mall, in the central business district of Sydney. This area of the city has been established for many years and offers a diverse range of retail opportunities, from the major brands to small boutique stores and high-end Australian and international fashion ranges.
Like any major world city, Sydney city retail caters to a wide group of shoppers, including corporate workers on their lunch break, wealthy international travellers, and regular families who simply venture in from the suburbs from some city-style retail therapy.
The goods and services range from completely affordable with bargain-bottom prices, to the most elite and expensive items, like diamonds and custom-designed gold jewellery. Inside Skygarden, expect a range of shops that sell books, electronics and men's and woman's fashions. The shopping centre is well presented, and compliments well with the other arcade-style complexes that also stem off the popular Pitt Street Mall.
What separates Skygarden from the rest is the rooftop bar that allows city-based diners and drinkers to escape the mundane characteristics of corporate office life, and relax in an open space with their friends and colleagues. This is one of the few locations, where you can get outdoors in the inner city, and is perfect for a warm summer's day lunch, or for watching the city lights sparkle at night.
The rooftop of Skygarden is extremely popular for corporate Friday night drinks, and is also a great choice of venue if you want to host a relaxed business function, or a casual lunch with friends. Skygarden is one of the most unique, yet still affordable locations in this area and is as popular with the locals, as it is with interstate and international visitors.
