beautiful room but that is where it stopped on my visit. one staff member was more concerned about sweeping the floor than attending to customers. very disappointing that the service didn't match the service on offer. Surely the most the important part of creating a hospitable environment is to acknowledge and great guests.

You know how you get that dislocated feeling when you walk into rather ornate older building which was originally, say, a church or a bank or a government building, but which is now a hip n trendy spot? That's Marble Bar. I confess, I did not investigate the provenance of this resplendent place, but be assured that any dislocation gets... More

Love this bar. This is a hidden gem in the middle of city. It has very historic feel. This place is suitable for all sort of locations like drinks with friends, after work drinks etc. Service is ok but the bar itself would amaze you. As soon you walk down to the bar, you enter in totally different century! Bar... More

The building is worth going for, let alone the live music and amazing atmosphere! It was the best bar we found in Sydney, down stairs just inside The Hilton entrance.

Very unusual but brilliant bar. Decor is so amazing its definitely worth a visit even for just one drink. Staff are friendly and can make any type of cocktail even if not on the menu.

I cannot recall the very first time I came to the Marble Bar. Sometime in the 1980s perhaps, but I attended it more frequently during the 1990s, where it was a wonderful, fun place to forget about the trials and tribulations of life and let your hair down. I had drinks there for my 40th birthday, and some great memories.... More

This bar is located under the Hilton on George Street. The decor is stunning being a step back in time with stained glass, pressed tin ceilings and marble columns. One touch that I liked was their "whisky flights" ($35) which enables whisky drinkers to try 3 whiskies, complete with tasting cards from one of 4 groups ie Scottish, American, Australian... More

This is a great get away from the busy city streets, hidden under the Hilton hotel it has an impressive decor and a very different atmosphere to other bars in the area. Drinks are more expensive than expected but the free popcorn is a nice touch (even though its to get you to by more drinks!). The customer service was... More
