Marble Bar

Underneath a world-class hotel, you'll find a cave of polished stone and a menu of stunning cocktails.

Originally built in 1893, but beautifully restored in 2005, the Marble Bar is a luxury basement bar with iconic marble archways, a frosted glass ceiling and a beautifully restored mahogany bar.

Enjoy the Victorian Gothic vibes combined with speakeasy energy as you sip on a glass of sparkling or stunning cocktails at this heritage-listed underground bar and music venue.

The bar was built in the former Adams Hotel in 1893 and was dismantled, transported and reassembled in the Hilton Sydney in 1973. The drinks and food bar harks back to the prohibition era with signature cocktails like the Autumn in New York (Olmeca Reposado Tequila, pomme vert, apple juice, agave, citrus), classic sidecar and the Charlie Chaplin (Plymouth Sloe Gin, apricot brandy and citrus). Pair with some lobster rolls, charcuterie platters or cheese boards for an epic night on the town.

There are live music events Monday–Saturday featuring a mix of jazz, pop and R&B to keep the chill vibes going.

But take note, this is a classy joint so you'll have to keep to a strict dress code — thongs, t-shirts, shorts and sneakers are no-gos in this underground bar.
