Highly recommend Gowings Bar & Grill. If you’re a local or a tourist definitely come here. Amazing cocktails, delicious food and a great atmosphere. The really good thing also is that before or after dinner you can go to one of their two bars they have right next to the restaurant. One of the best hidden secrets of the Sydney restaurant scene!
This place can be tricky to find, if you're not familiar with it. Catch the lift from lobby area next to the State Theatre. There are signs in the lift. Gowings is a great place to have a drink or a meal if you're going to the Theatre for a show. It's also just lovely spot to meet up. They have a restaurant and two bars. One bar downstairs, with the restaurant. The other is upstairs and has a few couches, high bar tables as well as a couple of semi-private spaces off to the side. I'd recommend booking a table, if your looking to have dinner here. It can get busy. If your after drinks though, there is an extensive cocktail, spirits and wine list. They have the full spectrum available, from local beer to high end whiskey, champagne etc. Fancy bar snacks are available until late. The staff are so lovely and incredibly accommodating. My friend has a slight gluten sensitivity and is pregnant, so had a few food restrictions. The staff were willing to accommodate and allowed us to have the restaurant starter menu at the bar, because it had more options for her on it. Overall, it has a very cosy and romantic atmospheric, and would definitely be a good spot for a date. It's not cheap, but it's very nice.
Great place hidden away from the crowds in the old Gowing building.
Old world charm meets modern style in this great bistro.
Food was of a really high standard, and service was relaxed yet attentive.
Very much recommends for a city lunch meeting.
If you want to go somewhere for a nice date, i'd send you here. It's busy but that's to be expected because it's in a prime location, the decor is beautiful and they have a fantastic cocktail menu. I will say though in regards to the food, it is a little bit more on the pricey end of the scale.
Had the sirloin steak . . . . In my humble opinion, the way steak should taste. Do yourself a favour and order the steak with brocolini w/ burnt butter and brussel sprouts w/ salt & vinegar. Staff were friendly and did their best the make sure our night was great.
Great place for drinks and dinner. Service are great and nice ambience. Dress smart casual.
Great bar. It has a lot of heart. Great service. Thoroughly recommend.
