This isn't the first time I've been here and it won't be the last! The location is fantastic for pre-theatre dinner or post-theatre drinks. We ate at the restaurant inside the Swissotel this time and it was an excellent start to our evening.

This is such a beautiful theatre and a great show venue. It has a great intimacy to it and barely a bad seat in the house. For the Train concert we were in the dress circle three rows from the back and yet still felt...More

What a great stately theatre. The acoustics in this old theatre are incredible. The Ten Tenors show was spectacular.

I am sitting in the theatre with a glass of wine which cost $10.50 and it is in plastic. Give me a break. I am too old to drink out of plastic. Very disappointing.

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

The downstairs part of this theatre is quite large, spacious and well graded so you shouldn't really have a blocked view from where ever you sit. Those rows would be fine, but try to get more centered even if you have to go... More
