A friend recommended this bar, maybe as a joke. Don't get me wrong: it is very nice and opulent, but also stiff and over-priced and not much room to boot.

The minute you walk into the Marble Bar, you feel like you have gone back in time 100 years. Its located under the Sydney Hilton Hotel (must exit hotel to enter it). The actual bar used in the lounge is a thing of beauty. They also made some very seasonable & tasty hand crafted cocktails.

This bar is stunning! Great atmosphere for a few drinks, which are also amazing with a good selection. They also have a food menu and live music. Definitely recommend.

Had some great cocktails, listened to a great jazz quartet, and looked around in amazement at the architecture. Definitely worth a visit. great old fashioned.

Very beautiful place, excellent variety of drinks at a reasonable price. Definitely a must go for tourists in Sydney, couples or business. There were lots of Japanese businessmen the day we visited!

Oozes character does this little boozer, only one bar open which was surprising as it was busy, small range of draught beer, snacks, men in suits and ladies toffed up, classy spot, good spot to catch up with some friends. Amazing decor.

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
