The Cellar Café & Bar


299 Commercial Street North Sydney


Frequently referred to as a “hidden gem”, The Cellar Bar is tucked away in the undercroft of a historic bank building and is a welcome surprise for anyone who walks through our doors. Behind the black Cellar door is a space that has been carefully curated to take you back in time and to highlight the history and culture of our small seaside town. We’re believers in the importance of how space and your surroundings can affect your experience. We aim to bring you to a place that not only makes you feel like you’re somewhere special but will cement a memory for years to come.

As an event venue, the Cellar offers top-notch entertainment and experiences. In partnership with other businesses, we create intimate music & dinner events that will leave you wanting more. In addition to our special events and pop-up weekend openings, we’re open regularly each Thursday evening from June-September for after-work gatherings with friends. Stop by and relax with a drink and snack as you settle into weekend mode. Come out to experience our craft cocktails and selection of craft beers.

Need a venue for your own event? The Cellar is available to rent for any kind of small gathering: business meetings, wedding rehearsals, birthdays, retirements, showers, etc. Details about rental can be found on our Rental page.
