Looking for fun things to do in Sydney? Whatever your idea of a good time is, chances are you’ll find it at The Star.
The Star is a gigantic entertainment hub in Darling Harbour stacked with a selection of Sydney’s best restaurants, bars, hotels and events. That includes the only hotel in Australia to be awarded a Forbes five-star rating, a $100 million event centre, the second biggest casino in the country and a luxury spa. How good’s that line up?
The Star Casino, Sydney’s premier luxury gaming venue and the second biggest casino in the country. It features over 100,000 sqm of poker tables, table games, dice games, gaming machines and more spread over two expansive levels. If you want to try your luck, this is the place to be.
One of the venue’s most exciting features is the Stadium - a gigantic 15 x 3.5m mega screen that displays blackjack and roulette dealers while they deal your cards and roll the dice. We guarantee this is the biggest game you’ve ever played!
If you like food you’re going to love The Star. The complex is home to over a dozen of Sydney’s best restaurants, from elegant fine dining to unfussy quick bites and comfort food.
For the ultimate foodie experience visit Ele by Federico & Karl, where you’ll dine in a dimly lit techni-colour room and eat dishes like Butter-poached marron, which Good Food called “aggressively delicious.” Or for something refined yet exciting, book a table at Sokyo, a smart casual restaurant that takes traditional Japanese cuisine and gives it a delicious Australian twist using the best local produce.
More casual options include Din Tai Fung (which arguably serves the world’s best xiao long bao, soup dumplings), Gelato Messina (which definitely serves Sydney’s best gelato) and Fat Noodle for funky Asian Street Food.
Fancy a tipple? You’ll be spoilt for choice at The Star, which is home to a dozen of Sydney’s best bars. There’s the Michael Reid Art bar, a gallery that curates a coveted selection of works from local and international artists and in the evening transforms into a cocktail bar... Then there’s G&Tea, which has an incredible menu of gin cocktails, teas (and even gin and tea cocktails!).
Black Bar is another must-visit, featuring a luxurious but moody interior and phenomenal twists on classic cocktails - like the ‘Velvet Martini’ which features house infused vanilla vodka. There’s also Rock Lily, where you’ll find live music from local acts.
When you feel like you need a break and some luxurious shut eye there’s nowhere better than The Star. It’s home to four unique hotels and residences, including Sydney’s first and only Forbes five-star boutique hotel and urban resort - The Darling.
