Arches On Market
Found on level eight of Swissôtel Sydney in the heart of the city, Arches on Market is a spacious hotel bar bringing bucketloads of old-school charm.
Settle in among the double-height arches, green marble bar, dangling glass pendants and velvet and leather booths to embrace the glamour and nostalgia, inspired by the palm courts of the world’s great hotels, and existing ‘30s architecture.
The cocktail menu (curated by Aaron Shuttleworth, co-founder of the Antipodean Hospitality Company) offers refined, classic cocktails and signature drinks using modern techniques, with a house martini featuring house vermouth served directly from the freezer. The wine list has an Australian focus, with well-known producers sitting alongside smaller names, with a selection of premium bottles available under Coravin.
Drinks are complemented by a bar snacks menu by executive chef John Giovanni Pugliano, with contemporary interpretations of retro staples like finger sandwiches, prawn cocktails, and a Wagyu cheeseburger.
Hotel guests can also enjoy Arches’ menu by the pool, in cabanas or on day beds.
