STAY AWAY AND GO ELSEWHERE - Waste of time and money. Been to many nice bars in Sydney and all over the world and have to say this is one of the the worse, given the exceptation. Apalling service, overpriced, saw a lot of drama...More

My favourite place in The Rocks, great outdoor area, cool interior, great staff and delicious food. What more do you want from a bar? Best in the day time though, door staff arent great and prefer clientele with a certain 'look' - still fun though

We had a great Saturday night out with good music being played in 2 separate areas. Just be aware ladies, that the outdoor area you need to cross entering and exiting the building in uneven cobblestones and can be a little treacherous in stilettos.

I like this place and have been a number of times. But tonight I they charges $13.50 for a vodka and $25 entry. I won't be coming back. Don't mind paying for expensive drinks but when you're charged so much entry...

Doormen deny access based on shoes and if you "look right". Our small group watched a fight break out after others were denied entry. Lots of comments like this in the reviews.

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The

There's no question that The Rocks is home to some of Sydney's most intriguing historical stories. And our landmark venue, The Argyle, has a unique, rich history all of its own. The sandstone walls that house The Argyle had seen some interesting sights well before we all hit the dance floor.Situated in one of Australia's oldest buildings, The Argyle is richly historic, while maintaining a uniquely modern take. With five bars held over two levels, we have a variety of areas to suit any mood. Whether you choose to hide away in a booth, gather friends around the high tables, chill out in the lounges or venture in to the open-air cobbled courtyard - the choice is yours. With capacity for up to 1800 guests, it's also the ideal location for large-scale events and celebrations.
