What to Expect @ The Vault Hotel

Review by Emily Jacobs

Hidden away between Martin Place and King St, the Vault Hotel offers the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of Sydney's CBD. Formerly the home of the Sydney Club, Vault's owners have taken the grand old building and converted the wide space into a comfortable and sophisticated place for after-work drinks and a hearty meal.

The Vault certainly lives up to its name. Dimly lit, the red-tinged room whispers elegance and style. The nondescript exterior masks the grandiose of the soaring columns and high ceilings that greet us as we walk inside. However, the design does not exude arrogance. Everyone is welcome to unwind and forget about their stressful day, week, month or year.

Visiting for a work function, my colleagues and I find a perfect spot for our large group. We are in on a Tuesday night so I don't expect big crowds. However, there is a steady flow of people from the time we arrive until we leave, indicating that this venue is a valued hideaway for their clientele: the CBD's office workers.

Split into two levels, downstairs offers tables, the main bar and an outside dining area where patrons can watch the action of the city from the pedestrianised Rowe St. The mezzanine level features couches and low tables, adding to the chilled out atmosphere.

The menu appeals to all appetites. Whilst gourmet pizza ($9-$11) is a popular choice amongst our group, the Crispy Pumpkin and Fetta Arancini Balls ($15) and Vault Chicken Burger ($15) are both delicious. The food is well-priced and of considerable quality everything we ordered was fantastic. The food took a little long to come out, but was well-worth the wait.

Our accompanying drinks were just as evenly priced. There is a comprehensive wine list, featuring both averagely-priced wines and the more expensive Moet and Veuve. Their cocktail menu is also full of yummy classics, from the Margarita ($16) to the Harvey Wallbanger ($9). The bartenders have fun with their service, playing with the wine bottles like circus jugglers.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, The Vault is a handy hideaway for anyone wanting to get away from busy city atmosphere. Its central position, sophisticated decor and atmosphere make it definitely worth a visit for some cocktails and canapes with the girls, beers and burgers with the boys or a relaxing drink and dinner with your favourite work friends.
