This is a bar experience not to be missed! Very elegant and classy, 1920's style with incredible marble columns and bars. My friend and I enjoyed sitting back in leather chairs sipping Singapore Slings listening to a live jazz/blues band and gazing at the decor. The wait staff were professional yet friendly. This place is a little hard to find... More

We went here based on Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. It was everything the reviews said - a lovely piece of history in the basement of the Hilton. The cocktails were good and they served free popcorn which is a nice touch. The waiters were very friendly and helpful. We shared a bowl of cheesy chips which were also... More

Beautiful transplanted bar room built 1893, saved from demolition and rebuilt. Spectacular stained glass, marble columns and bar tops, carved wood, it's all great. Mature crowd, well made cocktails by friendly bar tenders, tight jazzy band doing standards (superb guitarist) all made for a very pleasant evening. $17 and up cocktails.

Décor amazing, service great, drinks refined and beautifully balanced, the band mind blowing! What a great way to end the night after dinner. The lychee martini with rose water is a great twist and their whisky selection is sophisticated. The best bar in Sydney 😄

Best martini I have ever tasted. They put heaps of lemon juice in it and it really balanced the sweetness of the lychee syrup. So tasty, I could drink it everyday!

Good selection of drinks, average city prices, quick service at the bar. Shortage of seats, made even shorter when the shifters turn up at 9.30 to remove the last few. They transform it from a cosy lounge into a standing-room only bar/ 70's disco. Nice friendly crowd, enjoying a night out. Security on the door to keep out large groups.... More

Wow!! If you need to catch up and meet some people then choose the Marble Bar for this occasion. The bar is deep under ground and is full of history. You will spend hours looking over the amazing art work. But the stand out for me was the staff who are excellent at their job and make you feel at... More

Food is expensive, but delicious. The ambiance of the lighting and the gothic structure is really interesting.
