Located on the entire top level of The Star’s new Pirrama Road harbour side entrance and has expansive views of Sydney harbour’s skyline.  Marquee has been designed like no other venue in Sydney boasting 20,000 square feet of floor space and was part of The Star’s redevelopment.

Some of the venue’s key features include:

  • Located in the close proximity of Sydney CBD and on the famous Darling Harbour area.

  • Multi-level venue designed by the internationally renowned nightclub operator – TAO Group, who is responsible of the Marquee in New York City and Las Vegas.

  • Ability to host events up to 1,100 people

  • Stylish location for corporate functions, fashion shows, product launches, and networking receptions.

  • Three lavish rooms and various music experiences.

  • In house Chef & Culinary Team featuring a full range of food services, from canapés, to buffet style dining and beverage packages

  • State of the art sound & lighting, perfect for both DJs and live music

  • Floor to ceiling programmable LED wall & high definition projector for presentations

It is clear indication that Marquee is determined to bring a taste of the American flare to the doorstep of Sydney Harbour.  Featuring three unique spaces within the one venue.  The Main Room, Boom Box Room and The Library.  Catering for everyone’s tastes in style, music, and atmosphere.

The highlight of the Main Room will be its 30-foot LED projection stage and accompanying DJ booth, supplying more than enough audio and visual stimulation for its two dance floors. Capacity of 725 people.  The Boom Box will cater for your 325 guests in a chill-out esk with Sydney’s skyline views complete with accompanying outdoor patio.  The Library will offer an escape for those who are more into a lounging experience. Guests will be made to feel at home on those cold winter clubbing nights with the Library’s working fireplace. VIP lift access from street level for quick and concealed entry.  Not to be missed, is this unique space with a capacity of 40 peoples enjoys floor-to-ceiling Sydney harbour views.  Think L’Oreal or Mercedez Benz Fashion Week – the ultimate in magazine scene for that prep work or photo-shoot. The Dressing Room.

Marquee Sydney is something the city has definitely needed, and I imagine Australia will quickly get accustomed to it. Celebrating two years in March 2014, this unique venue is a serious contender in Sydney’s diverse conference and events landscape.

Be it for work or leisure, Sydney has always been a popular destination for intrepid travellers; it is a global hub filled with numerous world-famous must-sees such as the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. Yet despite being at the top, Sydney has been lacking a top-quality luxury hotel that meets the demands of CEO and high-exec corporates and their many needs.

The Darling - Lobby

The Darling – Lobby

The Darling is built within the Star complex; home to Sydney’s only casino t has a distinctive inverted glass tower resting on a sandstone podium and features 171 stylish and spacious rooms and suites, an infinity pool and a luxury 16 rooms spa.  With its integrated bars, lounge areas and a custom made billiard table, The Darling’s lobby has been designed as a gathering point for Sydney residents and hotel guests alike, bringing the concept of ‘lobby socialising’ to Sydney.

The suites have the high-end residential feel hotels have been aspiring to recently. Inspired by European drawing rooms, with entry via a private foyer that opens onto a spacious living room with stunning views and flows through to an intimate dining area. Doors demarcate a king-size bedroom with walk-in wardrobe, a fully appointed marble bathroom and the icing on the cake – a stunning spa bath with floor-to-ceiling windows views of the harbour.

At the level and clientele the Darling is pitching itself towards, it is the little touches that make all the difference.  The hotel offers four different tiers of suites alongside the 114 Darling Rooms, the most exclusive of which are the five penthouse suites – the place to stay if you clean up at the poker tables! Positioned in the premium apex of the tower, these (literally) top-floor two-bedroom suites are dedicated to the ultimate in luxury.  Each bathroom comes with a relaxing rain showerhead and European wand and an extensive collection of Black Molton Brown amenities, currently exclusive to The Darling. Only eight other hotels around the world have been invited to offer the range.

I believe that the Marquee Sydney sits at a class above the rest in providing a unique conference and events venue to suit and tailor to your needs.  Matched by a five-star Darling Hotel for your delegates to rest and rejuvenate; even spoil the VIPs to make that lasting impression.
