Opened in 1997, the casino formerly known as Star City had a massive revamp in 2011. The $870 million facelift saw the building given a new glass façade facing harborside, five new signature restaurants – Black Bar and Grill, Balla, Sokyo, Momofuku Seibo and The Century – which act as the flagships of the ongoing full renovation of the space from gambling palace to all-in-one entertainment hub.
Many of the classic venues remain, including the Sydney Lyric, however a new Star Event Centre is now open catering to international performers, intimate concerts, conferences, exhibitions and functions. There's also a revamped luxury hotel with spa. Watch sports at the 24/7 Sports Bar and catch live music at their in-house venue Rock Lily.
