Went to the Passage Bar for a drink. The place was recommended by a Doorman at another place that was booked out for a private party. It was very ordinary at best. There were boxes up above the bar making it feel unkept, dirty tea...More

Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of
Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues
feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning.
Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small

In a city frequently lauded for it’s enviable array of eateries and watering holes, many are often left wanting when it comes time for a little late night revelry. Amidst a sea of pubs, clubs and swanked up bars exists a glaring void for those seeking an element of intimacy and seclusion in their exploits after dark. Introducing 'The Passage' – An unprecedented and considered alternative to Sydney’s drinking and eating culture. Set apart from the current crop of small bars, The Passage boasts a refined food and beverage offering and a 3am trading license – allowing the venue to transition from small bar to small club as the night rolls along.
