Dolphin Hotel


in Surry Hills & Darlinghurst

Once a small corner pub, until it expanded into two neighbouring houses, the Dolphin's striking designer makeover means it deliberately looks like the renovation is still on, with cardboard signs and drop sheets. There's some posh Italian food on offer, but it's still a decent place for a drink and a pizza or other counter meal.

There are numerous spaces, from the bright, breezy upstairs to the seductive Wine Lounge. You'll soon find your favourite spot.
