no loud music or flashing lights and a place where you can hear yourself think. Located in the heart of the city it's a perfect stop for after work drinks. The different type of restaurants from pizza, oysters to sushi means you aren't lacking for any choice.

This was a great spot to meet for drinks after work before heading off to dinner. The cocktails were delightful, albeit a little pricey. Great customer service. It was a lovely quiet spot that allowed for good conversation without the need to shout at each other.

A few days ago I visited the Subterranean Bar & Grill restaurant in Martin Place. This fabulously fancy yet relatively cheap dining venue is right in the heart of Sydney's CBD. It's well hidden from the busy life of a major city, however, the atmosphere, service and food are of the highest standards. With my hand on my heart I... More

We had a sushi dinner here a few weeks ago. The place has a modern trendy atmosphere. Coloured LED lighting makes it feel like a bar or jazz club. There was plenty of seating available. Wheelchair acess through lifts located at the front of The Westin. Parking is terribly expensive! Staff are busy (not very interested in customers). Tasty food.... 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.
