Overview
More
Tank Stream Bar is tucked away in a secluded spot down Tank Stream Way. Serving up great food and an inviting ambiance it's the perfect place to enjoy a fine glass of wine and hand-selected cheeses. Warm lighting inside this intimate bar reveals an ancient wooden ceiling, and wine-rack walls serve as a reminder of Sydney's convict past. Early settlers chose the tank stream as their source of fresh water. And while the stream itself now flows underground, the bar remains one of Sydney's favourite watering holes.

I was hoping to get into Palmer & co, but it was closed for a private function. The doorman suggested I try the tank stream bar right next door. Good suggestion. Food was great and ambiance was cool, upscale but surprisingly also laid back.

The food are costly, and tasteless, drinks are expensive, and tasteless, kinda matching the name of the bar..."tank stream" which is a sewage system in Sydney. Don't bother

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
