“Don't be surprised.”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

Good selection of drinks, average city prices, quick service at the bar. Shortage of seats, made even shorter when the shifters turn up at 9.30 to remove the last few. They transform it from a cosy lounge into a standing-room only bar/ 70's disco. Nice friendly crowd, enjoying a night out. Security on the door to keep out large groups. Much quieter during the week, but good live bands. Been there about 4 or 5 times and feel comfortable - OK for 25 to 55 crowd.

“Meet at the Marble”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Wow!! If you need to catch up and meet some people then choose the Marble Bar for this occasion. The bar is deep under ground and is full of history. You will spend hours looking over the amazing art work.
But the stand out for me was the staff who are excellent at their job and make you feel at home straight away. Drinks and food is up there is price..but hey it worth it!

“Beautiful bar”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Food is expensive, but delicious. The ambiance of the lighting and the gothic structure is really interesting.

“Its a must”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

If your in Sydney you have to tick off the Marble bar. I always try and drop in for a Martini when i am in town as it is beautiful spot that takes you back to the Martini era. Just beware the bands as it is a live music venue which may not suit you so drop in for a pre dinner drink if thats not your thing.

“right under the hilton”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

this is worth a stop in just to see the exquisite marble. only open later in the day but worth the look see. right across the street from the queen victoria building which is another must see, especially if you like old buildings with a history.
