We went there on Saturday night ad arrived early around 9 pm. It was quiet but we decided to stay for a drink. Then the band comes and we had so much fun dancing and the beer is a reasonable price for Hilton. Will go back if there is a live band or happy hour.

Arrived with six friends at 5.00 pm to enjoy a drink or two. Unfortunately they had to serve our spirits and beers in plastic glasses not what I would have expected, in a place like this. Apparently this is the law according to staff, which is not true, but was not going to argue. Will not recommend this as a... More

Able to get local brews on tap, and pretty good cocktails. Whisky selection is fantastic, able to get various makes including Japanese Yamazaki 18,Hibeki, etc. Drawback -price as part of hotel. Good place to have drinks with business associates.

My husband and I visited on a Saturday, and we enjoyed some beautifully made cocktails while surrounded by art and a sophisticated atmosphere with beautiful marble. The drinks were reasonably priced (about $20 for a cocktail) and we also had pizza from their bar menu. Food can take a little while to arrive as it comes from the kitchen from... More

Very nice atmosphere. Bought a cheese platter to have with some beers for a business meeting and personally think it was a bit overpriced and Ive tasted better but its a real different experience just going here worth a try

We were after a bar for cocktails pre dinner. We tried marble bar. Cocktails good. Service not so good. I approached a bar and the staff member walked away as I approached. 😕. I went to the other bar and ordered 2 'tails. Very good 😊. But! In plastic? With a chip? We continue the search. Marble bar is off... More

Oh this place is such a jaw dropping place Every nook and cranny you looked in it was filled with ornaments and old treasures This place is a must to see and have a drink while your there The marble is so eye catching the coldness of it on a 42 degree day is worth it

Checked the Marble Bar's website earlier in the day. Upon arrival, we were told the Marble Bar was closed due to a private function. Really! Why wasn't this posted on their website? Very disappointing considering we traveled from the northern beaches to get there.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood 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.
