The CBD is a great place for after-work drinks or crawls (whichever one's more your speed, really). It has, by far, the highest density of bars in the smallest space, and there are some pretty spectacular bars on that list. We loved Marble Bar, an underground, extremely fancy place to get a cocktail (and by extremely fancy we mean they have renaissance art hanging on the walls). The Cidery Bar (run by our mates at Sydney Brewery) is noteworthy for it's $5 ciders on tap at all times, and it doubles as a hotel lounge so it's a bit fancy as well. And, like all CBD drinks nights, you're gonna end up at Star Bar. You hate Star Bar? Too bad, you can't go to the CBD and not end up at Star Bar and that's because they have $10 jugs from Monday to Thursday and some great tap choices. The CBD has had some notable closures due to the lockout laws (RIP Bar Century, your vodka-soaked carpets will stay with us forever) but it's still the best place to go if you're looking to get to loads of great bars in one night.
