The Doss House is an intimate, heritage underground bar with a stylish vintage interior, allowing you to easily feel transported back to another time.
Recapturing the convivial spirit of Sydney’s formative years, The Doss House unites fine whiskies, spirits & cocktails with the historical charm of one of the city’s oldest suburbs, The Rocks. The original sandstone walls bring warmth to this unique basement bar which features a beautiful terrace area & rare original fireplaces.
Built in the 1840s, this space has been the home to a rich, eclectic collection of tenants including a boot maker, boarding house, doctor’s surgery & opium dealer, some which have been entwined within the interiors of the five, cosy bar spaces.
Relax in one of our crushed velvet banquettes in this Chinese inspired space. Once an illegal gambling hall and Opium Den, this room has been renovated to include subtle hints of its past tenants history. This is our most private room within the venue and can be tailored depending on your event.
