Bentley Bar
much improved since the Spirit of Sydney

320 Crown Street, Darlinghurst

(02) 9331 1186

More pubs in Darlinghurst >>

The Bentley Bar, for a while recently, wasn't even called the Bentley Bar. The Spirit Of Sydney as was is now under new management (again), and the old name is back. Not that any of us used it anyway..

We'll be bringing you an up-to-date review of the bar under it's new management very soon..


Made it back to the Bentley Bar for the first time in an age recently. Well, let's say it's much improved over the Spirit Of Sydney. It was busy, comfortable and very talkative. The bar has gone a bit upmarket, not upmarket enough to lose the pokies (shame) but sufficient to ditch the pool table. Which is a good thing considering the crush in there.

drunk from Surry Hills
The management at Kinselas has closed the bar in favour of openning the columbian on the corner of Oxford and crown st It's really a pity to lose this conversational drinking hole

An Ex-Duty Manager from Darlinghurt
F.Y.I - The Bentley Bar was purchased by Kincellars Hotel (just located up the road from the Bentley). They have big plans for the place, including opening up the second level as a club again.

This was one of the first pubs I visited in Sydney (believe it or not). I liked it then, but my horizons have broadened since.

Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza. : Dave Barry - more quotes...
