Whenever we attend a concert at Sydney’s City Recital Hall we feel transported to one of the finest music venues in the world. Whether it’s classical, jazz or world music the acoustics are always superb. In recent years there have been a lot more concerts...More

With a remarkably varied program on offer I’m pleased to say we’ve only ever seen excellent shows at this venue. Quality control must be outstanding to achieve this. We love sitting in this hall as the seats are very comfortable and the excellent acoustics justifiably...More

Australian Brandenberg Orchestra on a balmy September evening. This hall has excellent acoustics and most seats offer a good view. I have been here many times and it remains a favourite venue for me. 1961oos

How wonderful a venue is Sydney's City Recital Hall. You sit in extremely comfortable seats with plenty of leg room and listen to your show with the best acoustics in town. What is amazing is the variety of concerts and presentations they have there. In...More

I always enjoy angel place. The acoustics are good, the seats are comfy and the venue easy to get too. Only complaint is exiting is slow as the stairs are narrow. Also the lobbies are small and crowded.

We went to see Four Play. The drinks available before were reasonable priced and not a long queue. The venue itself was great. Big tall ceilings, great acoustics with not the most comfortable seats but plenty of leg room. Will definitely go there again.

City Recital Hall hosts many wonderful musical and theatrical performances. While it's not as luxurious as the Sydney Opera House, the Hall has great acoustics and lots of seats on the flat and in tiers. City Recital Hall is the home of Pinchgut Opera. This...More

The venue was very good for the show. It is easy to get to. We were here last year for the same show. A very well run place.

My husband and I saw a show of the Australian Chamber Orchestra here and it was fantastic. It's a very well laid out theatre so, while of course some seats are better than others, regardless of where you sit you should always have a great...More

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
