Actually I came here for drinks and enjoyed the experience so much I thought I might share it with you all ( given some of the dreadful ratings I've read for the Arthouse) Perhaps the issues have been addressed already? Perhaps it's a restaurant issue? However I found the bar staff to be super friendly and helpful, the interior has... More

Visited Arthouse for drinks and dancing, encouraged by "90's hip hop" theme advertised. As a native Californian, could not be more disappointed by what seemed like the deliberate exclusion of 2pac, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, under such a heading. Maybe they were saving it for the end, which we could not possibly wait to tell for sure, but 100%... More

We arrived at 12:15, ordered our meals at 12:20 and left at 13:20 with a refund, but no lunch. This is the second time this has happened. There won't be a third. We're never going back.

Great environment, good selection of drinks and wide menu. Very close to town hall station which is extremely convenient. Great life drawing sessions on Monday nights in the attic bar for a very good admission (byo drawing materials) which is convenient for artists who can only access these kinds of creative opportunities after work.

Attending a drinks function on a Friday night, the Arthouse Bar in the city centre was an interesting venue offering a wide range of beers, wines and cocktails as well as chef-prepared pizzas and a variety of finger foods. Anticipate a crowd when end of work drinks commences. Live entertainment seemed to be on the cards but we left before... More

This place gets pretty crowded with workers at lunch and after work hours on weekdays. Not so much on weekends though. I had lunch here and was not that impressed with the menu, or the high prices. I had a serve of chips for $9 and a companion had a burger and chips for $18 - where the meat on... More

Having worked nearby to Arthouse for many years, I used to frequent the venue for lunch or after work drinks quite often. Recently I went to have lunch with friends to celebrate my birthday. I noticed the menu in the bar area had changed and it seemed to have less appealing options than it used to have plus it was... More

8 of us wandered in after Georgy Girl at the State Theatre and drank some nice wine and had a light meal which was perfect. No loud music for those of us a little hard of hearing and comfortable seating for older bones. It is ideally placed for the theatre and has friendly efficient staff.

Having a quiet drink with colleagues. My mates go to get a drink. This group of blokes comes and takes over the space right next to me. I try to clear some space and tell this dude in a cap that I'll be needing some space back when my friends arrive from bar. Friends back and this bloke won't move.... 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.
