Most people in Sydney will know this is here - but if you're a tourist you may not. Seek it out, it's hidden under the Hilton on George street and is older than the Queen Vic Building. Good live music too. Csn be busy after Thursday.

Marble Bar is a stunning speakeasy with hand carved wooden bars, stained glass windows and some ceiling, delicious "small bites" & New Orleans signature cocktails + local & international whiskey flights...what more could you want? The "French Quarter" cocktail was sweet and dangerously smooth and the cauliflower croquettes were a perfect light appetizer. Service was a bit slow which is... More

Gorgeous bar with absolutely outstanding service. Lovely & secluded for an intimate drink. Excellent cocktail range probably not in everyone's price range but well worth every penny. Bar snacks were great. Cannot wait to return.

I have been to the place several times with friends. It is a great to see bars with a quaint style still alive. It's small which gives it a very intimate vibe and not crowded (at least the times I went). Cocktails are the best and attractive bartenders too ;). Would point out cause its small and when the live... More

Wow what a great night I had here. Being a middle aged lady on her own it's intimidating walking into a bar or club on your own. However, Joe who has worked there 24 years took me under his wing and introduced me to the regulars, he was always nearby making sure I was safe. Amazing night - thank you... More

Late night drinks here, live music, room was full, service from the bar was better than you would expect given how busy things were. It is a classic venue, beautiful decor and all kept in great condition.

Very classy bar. Looks uninviting from the street but go down stars and it's very classy. Grand old bar. Up market. Not for those on a budget unless the 4-8 happy hour weekdays when prices are reasonable

First time here. Gear atmosphere, no cover charge (bonus!), toilets clean, bar staff quick. Was very surprised at how much I enjoyed it even though from a younger age group (mid 20s). Drinks definitely on the pricier side but that was expected. The outstanding thing for me was the live band, although I haven't been able to find out who... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
