Tonight at 21/04 I came for the first time to Star Bar by invitation of a friend who's leaving the country, so it was meant to be a very special occasion. Unfortunately I received a very bad welcome by the security who was checking IDs, he was extremely unpleasant from the moment he checked my ID and I felt rather... More

Refused a sober man on the mardi gras night using lame excuses about him being 'drunk' even though he had one single drink when he got there. We got the impression it was because the male was black and when we mentioned this to the manager she laughed in our face and said it didn't matter because they had the... More

this place povide many kinds of food and drink, with good price. the room is too dark even at day time, but there is enough space to enjoy food, away from drink area. the food is valuable just as much as the price.

Just a big room, dark, dingy, dank, stink and villiany - perfect if you wish to get into a fight, get stabbed or just general nonsense. The sooner this place is shut down, the better

Being an Australian I've never had to feel like I don't belong in here or sensed any discrimination but yesterday Sydney's 'Star Bar' changed how I look at the country. My first time in Sydney I dropped by this place with a bunch of friends and like any other club we lined up to show our IDs. The guard let... More

This place can get packed in the evening especially Friday night. However, early in the weekday, it's cozy and good inexpensive food in the midst of Sydney CBD.

My long-time friend Charles-Antoine and I had a quick and inexpensive steak at the Star Bar last September. It was quick, quite good and inexpensive at all.

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.
