Belvoir is conveniently located just minutes from Sydney’s Central Station, and the area offers a diverse range of culinary options to suit almost every palate. You can choose from award-winning restaurants, stylish wine bars or our very own Hal Bar, located in the foyer of the theatre.
At the theatre, our selection of light meals, snacks and sweets, is available 60 minutes prior to each performance and during interval. We also serve Handpicked Wines, Poor Toms and Coopers to ensure a great range of beverages to enhance your theatre experience.
We love local businesses and aim to work exclusively with local suppliers and local restaurants. So here’s our inside scoop on getting the most out of your next trip to Belvoir.

Belvoir’s Hal Bar is a Sydney theatre institution. It’s the perfect place to meet up with friends before the show starts, or grab a drink after to continue chatting about the show. You never know who you might see!
The Hal Bar serves a range of drinks from our local partners, including:
Handpicked is a contemporary and dynamic Australian wine company. They ‘handpick’ the wine regions and grape varieties from around Australia and beyond to craft an impressive range of wines.
This local business that brings some of the world’s best wines to our theatre for you to enjoy. And if you’re keen for more, their cellar door is just down the road in Chippendale.
Poor Toms is in the business of making absurdly delicious spirits – especially gin. With a nod to a Theatrical link in their name sake, this is a partnership that just makes sense. We recommend you try a tipple of their Sydney Dry Gin and equally recommend you visit their Gin Hall. There’s a reason Poor Toms is one of our favourite partners. Take a sip and you’ll taste why.
We offer a range of beers and ciders made by Coopers, Australia’s oldest family-owned and run brewery.
