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

I've been visiting the Marble Bar for 30 years now and it is still worth a visit. This time was a quiet 29 December Monday night and it was perfect for drinks with friends. Great staff here and the surroundings are truly impressive.

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.
