Beautiful people out to see and be seen, young eager clubbers and Darling Harbour tourists. Homebar is there for the look, and as you'd expect from such a bar, it's pricey.
We paid $20, yes $20, for two bottles of Cascade and a scotch, which put a slight colour on the evening. Having said that, everything in DH is pricey.
The bar has a wide frontage, but isn't really more than fifteen feet deep, so it gets crowded. It's definitely loungey, with plenty of small stools and long, comfortable seating. The noise level is pretty high, with punters raising their voices to be heard above the house DJs that play in the corner.
On a final note, the more stylish bars in Sydney seem to be pursuing a policy of unisex toilets. So expect to see people wandering round looking for 'their' toilets, when in fact it's all-in-one!
PLEASE NOTE: this review is only of Homebar, not of Home nightclub.
