The Basement

If music is your thing after a day of serious business then The Basement is one of Sydney's best places to kick back and lose yourself for a while.

The Spin Drifters at The Basement

Located at the rear of the Sydney Harbour Marriott Circular Quay, The Basement has been a Sydney musical institution since 1972 when it was created as an alternative to the hard pub rock venues that were sprouting up at the time. It began primarily as a jazz venue and is still heavily rooted in that genre, along with blues, soul and acoustic-style performances. Visitors can dine here before taking in a show or come later simply for the music. It also has two bars, The Blue Note and The Green Room, which offer bistro-style meals, cocktails, coffee and pool tables. Six nights a week you never know who you might see at The Basement.
