The Argyle is an amazing bar and lounge. The interiors, decor and lounge areas are one of a kind and draws in a classy and trendy crowd. This is a very good place to meet up with friends. Their menu offers a range of light meals, seafood, dishes to share. There is plenty of room for everyone, with a courtyard and five other lounge- dining areas.
The Argyle is still the funkiest place in The Rocks, turning up its volume with ?70s tunes. New at the Perch Bar is the sashimi and sushi menu including the tiny and delish tuna sashimi ice cream cone with soy dipping sauce and a scampi salad in a shot glass. Heavy-duty share plates like spicy chicken wings and potato wedges are good for the guys. Gotta love the great courtyard and cobblestones.

Rude staff was a turn off. We'll never go there again for that reason alone. The receptionists indifferent.
6 of us (three couples) when down for a few drinks. One of the staff was not let in due to having had one too many - the rest of us were fine and told we could go through. When my sister tried to explain they were part of our group. The "gate keeper" then banned her from coming in as well. My boyfriend, questioning their decision was then told they were not allowed in either!!!??!? Next thing you know, we're all guilty by association and disallowed from entering due to questioning criteria and standards.--6 well-dressed, educated professionals.
Such a shame that an otherwise great establishment. Never again!
I love the Argyle and its atmosphere, the DJ box and bathrooms, the only bad point would be how expensive drinks are, and sometimes it is difficult (especially for guys or people underdressed) to get in.
Nice design set in the colonial Argyle Street of The Rocks - I do love the cobble stone walkways, however it gets extremely crowded mainly with pretentious suits on firday and saturday nights. Great for after work drinks but pricey for food and drinks but normal for the location.
Nice ambience, trendy, large venue with funky people. Lots of different areas to mingle. Easy to get into before 6:30pm... but as time progresses, the music gets progressively louder... and the chances of you being rejected at the door to even gain entry (or in my case re-enter) gets progressively lower... Loved the ambience but there is a lack of food choices!
Any place that has an ATM right next to the bar is giving fair warning about what drinks are going to cost. It definitely has an element of cool and is huge. If you like loud trendy bars full of loud trendy people then this place is for you
Perfect post work drinks venue, lots of good-looking people without too much pretension - quite a surprise since it's located in the rocks. Drinks are a little exy but that's normal for the area. the large stable-like entrance is great and gives one a feeling of walking into a classic setting.
The atmosphere is by far better than any other establishment that Sydney has to offer.
Sydney is full of pretentious bars and clubs that act as if they are in New York or Tokyo. However, The Argyle is nice and relaxed, and attracts a much calmer and mature (not mature as in 'old') crowd.
It is very stylish yet still comfortable.
