First of all, subsolo is hidden away, luckily they have a big sign out the front to show you where to go. There is a steep stairwell that leads down into a dimly lit, latin inspired venue. The service is fantastic, and the servers know...More

Nearby
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
