Platform 818 Restaurant & Bar | Chippendale, Sydney CBD


About us

The creation of Platform 818 Restaurant & Bar was influenced by the history and heritage of its locality at 818 George Street, located in Chippendale right on the cusps the Sydney CBD.

Directly below the hotel lies the now unused original Goods Line Tunnel – the first of its kind in Sydney – used to connect Sydney Rail Yard and the Sydney-Parramatta railway line to the shipping port of Darling Harbour. Conveniently located opposite the historical Central Station, the largest station in Sydney which was first opened in 1855 as a simple wooden platform, nothing more than a corrugated iron shed, we have taken some of this rustic inspiration for our new décor.

Hop on board for great times and palatable adventures.
