2. Marble Bar
A new place of worship
Go putting on the ritz – though this amazingly, ornate, underground bar is part of the Sydney Hilton. Every marble slab, wood carving and bronze bust was dismantled, restored and reassembled, part of the old Adams Hotel, which was demolished in ‘68. And though your eyes will be bursting from their sockets, this cathedral of a bar not only fills your ears with live music Wednesday to Saturday but teases your taste buds with a mean cocktail list!
