The Revival Of An Iconic Classic
October 01, 2014 – SYDNEY – Hilton Sydney’s iconic Marble Bar is re-launching this month with a sophisticated and classic food, beverage and entertainment offering to match the bar’s stunning aesthetic.

The ornate venue features two vintage oversized mahogany bars, thirteen original Edwardian paintings, an elaborate plaster ceiling and, of course, over 100 tonnes of the world’s finest marble. Staying true to the historic space, the team at Marble Bar has personally curated a classic yet unique overall offering that is sure to please all patrons.
“Marble Bar truly is one of Sydney’s finest and most unique venues. We’re excited about the new direction that the bar is taking and are proud to offer an elegant space that is teamed with excellent service and an enviable food and beverage offering,” said Felix Busch, hotel manager, Hilton Sydney.
