With sweeping views overlooking Canberra’s inner south, Parliament House and the iconic Telstra Tower – ‘Leyla’ is the newest addition to Canberra’s bar scene.

Located on the seventh floor of the Burbury Hotel in Barton, this cozy yet spacious top floor venue provides a picturesque getaway to enjoy a drink as well as a snack or two – even in the midst of Canberra’s freezing winter.

What sets Leyla apart from other ‘rooftop’ bars in the Territory is that she’s been brave enough to venture further than those who’ve come before her.

The large windows surrounding the bar ooze natural light into the space without letting in the cold but come summer, as the weather heats up, those windows can be tilted upwards for a truly unique and authentic rooftop experience.


On the menu, Leyla is serving up snacks to share with playful dishes to delight both the sweet and savory toothed.


Served alongside a wide ranging selection of cocktails as well as local and imported beers, wine, spirits and bubbles.
