101 George Street, The Rocks, NSW, 2000

Once housing a butcher's shop leased and run by Thomas Playfair between 1869 and 1886, the present-day building was converted to and Oyster saloon in 1887 with a wine bar added in 1906.

From 1922, the ground and first floor were tenanted by a number of manufacturing companies and through to 1965 the property slowely fell into disrepair. Consideration for the demolition of the property were twarted by such bodies as the 'Save the Rocks' committee. The current internal bar located in the front room of the Phillips Foote was installed in the mid 1970's having been previously located at Playfair's Buildings in Harrington Street (which was demolished to make way for the construction of Clocktower Square). Phillips Foote continues to be operated by the company that carried out the $220,000 renovation work of 1976.
