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

Had a drink here last night and the place was busy yet comfortable. Nice venue underground the Hilton - centrally located to everything in the CBD. Good staff.

Stopped here for after dinner drinks - scotches and bourbons with friends. Atmosphere is fantastic, hidden from the main street. It's like you walk into another world. Couches, chairs, 2 bars and lots of character! Highly recommend

What an extrodinary place, definately have to go once. Good music, probably more an under 35's venue, the night we went a Friday. Probably wouldn't go again, pricey drinks

I've been going for many years. Friday night is the best. Great band and older crowd. 30s plus up to 50-60s Yummy cocktails and staff very nice. Great place to dance!

Nice bar but drinks were flat and overly expensive for the off coke served to us on Saturday night! Very disappointed

At the Hilton for an event and when asked for directions to the bar was sent to the 100 year old basement of the Hilton. Great historical place. Was full (Friday night after work,standing room only) noisy. Cocktails were served in PLASTIC cocktail glasses and it was the worse Japanese Slipper I have ever had. Don't think FRESH Lemon was...

Hidden in the basement of the Sydney Hilton on George street. Lovely historical place for a relaxing drink and to take visiting guests. I love this bar!

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.
