Good place to take a date:
When you finally work out the entrance to Miss Marley’s, you’ll feel like you stepped into a timewarp, transported to the bygone 1950s. This vintage tequila bar certainly stands out against the stuffy fine dining that you’ll find elsewhere in Sydney, taking a fun and adventurous approach to Sydney dating. Sample some of the city’s finest tequilas as you tuck into South American tapas that is scandalously good. The intimate ambience is relaxed yet electric, with cosy tables of two giving you your own little space in the corner to scheme all evening. While away the hours making your way through the extensive cocktail and tapas list, swinging your heads (and later maybe bodies) around to the feel-good music. One for the fun-loving romeos who fancy a change of scene; warning: not a quiet dining experience!

Just so long as you’re over 18… No tables of screaming kids here, Miss Marley’s is all about good old-fashioned, adult fun.

Time of review:
Miss Marley’s is at is liveliest on a weekend, when live music brings this small but spunky bar to its feet. So if you want to check out your date’s dance moves, get yourself down for a Friday or Saturday night. Don’t want to commit murder on the dancefloor? Keep your moves under wraps and play safe with a midweek visit for a more chilled out atmosphere with a focus on food and drink.
Average cost of a meal and a drink:
You’ll breathe a sigh of relief with the prices at Miss Marley’s when compared to other bars and restaurants in the area. Considering the second-to-none service and to-die-for South American tapas, your budget as well as your belly will be more than satisfied when they bring over the bill.
Type of cuisine:
Be prepared to share on a Sydney date at Miss Marley’s. Ease yourself through the night as you order a carousel of cuisine over the course of a few hours. From ceviche to empanadas, cod fritters to belly pork, there is plenty of choice. Accompanied by Argentinian Malbec red or a few shots of tequila, your taste buds are going to be calling out Arrrribba!
Miss Marley’s thinks different. If you’re looking for a traditional, romantic restaurant in Sydney, look elsewhere. However if an intimate, quirky joint with a liquor selection longer than Sydney harbour and a menu that spans the world gets you excited, then you’re sure to be more than pleased with your visit.
