Visited for the Dr Sketchy session on a Tuesday which was great fun, a very different night out and had some food to accompany. The food was reasonably priced and did the job. The whole experience was fantastic though, definitely recommend!

The Arthouse Hotel has a bar on the ground floor and the Dome restaurant upstairs.
We had a look at both and as we were in a rush to get to a show, opted for the bar.
I disagree with some of the previous reviewers - a bar is a bar and one shouldn't have great expectations. In this case the quality of the food more than matched the price paid.
We chose the scotch steak and the veal ravioli. Both were tasty and filling and at $18 good value.
You give your order at the counter and the food is brought to you.
We were there at the busiest time yet the food came reasonably quickly.
It is, of course, noisy but there's a great vibe.
We took a look upstairs at the restaurant which is far quieter and more reserved. The prices match the atmosphere but I cannot comment as we did not eat there.
If we had had more time we would probably have gone upstairs but were happy with our choice.
The Arthouse is well located close to the theatres and cinemas and the Pitt Street Mall.

We were at the bar as a group of ladies for a birtday celebration. Our food took more than an hour to come out and was really quite bland. Don't expect much from this place!

A good variety of meals and sides for selection.
There is a $12 steak which is ok, since you get what you pay for.
The ambiance is much nicer than your average suburbia pub.

The ground floor was nicely set up, I liked the paintings of famous athletes hand on the wall. Also the big screen make it a ideal place for sports fans. I also had a chance to go upstairs, is more of a high class setting, suitable for more serious gathering.
