Welcome to Sydney’s best bar: The Argyle
Inside a heritage building in the heart of Sydney’s most historic precinct, The Rocks, you’ll find Sydney’s best night out. Two centuries ago this building was a warehouse called the Argyle Stores, but now it's a multi-story bar, live-music venue and eatery.
The Argyle courtyard is one of the city’s best, with sandstone walls, all-day sun and a nearby bar so you never have to go far for refreshments. It’s the perfect spot to spend an afternoon in the sun with friends, work mates or family - or stick around for a while to see the atmosphere electrify as the fairy lights turn on and the stars come out.
If you’re after a big night, delve deeper into the building and discover its many dancefloors, bars, stages and chill-out areas where thousands of locals have had their ‘best nights ever’. There’s neon lights, local characters and intimate performances by icons of house music, R&B and party anthems. Visit almost any night of the week and expect packed dancefloors and guaranteed good times.
When the lights are on you’ll also notice that The Argyle building is a charming, historic warehouse, and a great spot for a casual lunch or dinner (and a few drinks).
