Located in the centre of the CBD, The ArtHouse Hotel is a restored taproom where arty types mix with CBD suites for a unique wining and dining experience. The Dome restaurant, located upstairs, is set in a heritage rich room of generous dimensions, with warm light bouncing off chocolate panels and polished floorboards. The service is unstoppably good and the modern Australian menu is lashed with European influences.

On Pitt Street, just down the road from Pitt Street Mall in Sydney’s CBD.

As soon as you enter The ArtHouse Hotel, you get the sense that there’s been a lot of history created within its walls. The building itself dates back to 1836 and was once home to The School of Arts. However, today’s ArtHouse is home to a stylish taproom, four bars and the elegant dining room aptly titled Dome. High gilded ceilings, 19th century plasterwork and large arched windows set the stage for an elegant dining experience at Dome Restaurant. Guests can start with a drink in the lounge before taking a seat in the large dining area complete with white-clothed tables and polished wooden floors. The refined menu commands as much respect as the restaurant’s surroundings with dishes such as squid ink linguine, Chinese marinated quail and New Zealand salmon.

In keeping with the hotel’s artistic bent, Dome also doubles as an exhibition area for hanging artworks by Sydney artists. The ArtHouse also regularly features creative arts events such as life drawing, art exhibitions, burlesque, cabaret and DJ/club nights.
