Star Bar
The former Planet Hollywood, retaining the cheese
(3.152)


George Street, City South






More pubs in City South >>
 

The appeal of the Star Bar lies in its cheap drinks before 11 and FREE ENTRY. That said, it lacks any character, offering nothing new. So if you don't mind the same ol', same ol', its worth considering checking it out.

The tunes played include many favourites, safe choices featuring lots of RnB and Top 40 dance, which means the music is repetitive, and soon gets boring. Highlights, if any, would have to be the fact there's quite a few seats available when you're dead tired and just want to crash for 5 minutes, and the small but sturdy platforms next to the dance floor which - when slightly pissed of your face - are fun to dance on.

So its a safe choice, nothing special but not completely disappointing. Like i said, cheap drinks, free entry.

Loz from Sydney
This bar is fun at the end of the night, when you're already off your skull. Otherwise its incredibly sleezy and revolting, and you question yourself repeatededly about why on earth you went in, and why your drunk mates don't want to leave

Not much of an atmosphere to the place. The drinks are cheap immediately after work, but the only worthwhile thing about this bar at that time is to get a window seat and watch the George St crowd walk by. Not a fan.

Once you get through the bouncers, you believe you're in for a huuu-uuu-uuge night. Truth be known, once upstairs you're kind of blown away by a fantastic atmosphere yet a lack of partygoers. The vibe is good, the music is tasteful, the settings are great, yet on a late Friday or Saturday night I'm sure you're guaranteed a night of wasted fun. Go elsewhere.

DOWNCHILD from CHATSWOOD
THIS PLACE IS AN UP MARKET JOINT FOR THOSE WHO ARE CLASSIFIED AS 'DOWNCHILD' BUT OTHER THAN THAT IT IS ONE PIECE OF SHIT. ITS GOOD IF U CANT GET INTO ANY PLACE ELSE IN THE WHOLE OF THE CITY AS IT IS ALWAYS EMPTY. IF U WANT ASS OFF A DOWNCHILD THIS MAY BE A GOOD START.

Vouchers yes ive had a few 25 on one outing infact. We had a fabulous evening drinking "FREE BEER" they have a couple of pool tables also for all u sharks out there. As for a rating id say its fair considering the surrounds. My advice is go down the road to park street and you will find a nice pub on the corner opposite the Criterion.

When I was a kid in the UK, there was a chocolate bar called the "Star Bar". First one I ever ate made me feel quite sick. Co-incidence? ;-)
