20 minutes for a drink. Why do they let poor first day newbys loose without training? This is not DIY, and Bunnings take weeks to train even their casual staff to deal with DIY. Simply lame! Glass 2 floors below an infinitely better choice!

nice bar downtown, nice to sit in the smoking area and have a drink but your can eat out there due to some crazy nsw smoking law.

We found it romantic. We went there during the week and sat in the open air area looking over the QVB. the music wasn't crazy loud, one could hold a conversation. People are all dressed up, and the bar is pretty well dress too.

If you are looking for a late night drink with a few friends before you turn in, this is a great option. If you are looking for a cheap beer/wine, keep walking. It's a trendy cocktail bar that serves great drinks in an atmosphere that turns very clubby the later in the night you get.

Great atmosphere, prompt service, the bar snacks menu is a bit light on. The price of drink is also a bit too expensive but all in all nice to have a drink

They always block the front entrance elevator downstair on the the ground floor by another bar, only until you get to the front queue and realised you don't need to queue for Zeta at all, service not as good as few years ago...lack of events, and music compare to 2011/2010

While staying at the Hilton my wife and I stopped in at Zeta bar for a drink. When we arrived we were pleased that it wasn't too busy and found some seats. After seating a waitress brought us some waters and gave us a minute to look over the menu. Unfortunately she never came back. This was fine as the... More

We decided to visit to experience some of their innovative cocktails and were not disappointed. The added bonus was that the venue was light, accessible and contemporary. It was clear locals found the bar a great place to meet. When next back in Sydney we will certainly visit again.

Great layout and large selection of drinks available. Nice outdoor area and good entertainment. Was a bit dark in some areas and hard to hear over the entertainment.

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.
