Time Out says

A secret bar featuring live music and magic shows is opening in Barangaroo this month

On Friday, May 27 a secret bar will quietly open its doors for the first time at The Streets of Barangaroo in Sydney. The D.L.M – that's the Department of Legend & Myth FYI – is set to be Sydneysiders' new house of wondery and mystery, where punters can expect cocktails, magic, live music and quirky decor. Conveniently, this is also opening night of Vivid, so you can add an extra dose of razzle dazzle to your weekend. 

The bar is concealed behind the unassuming bureaucratically styled frontage on the corner of Exchange Place, at the bottom of the Wynyard escalators, Sussex Street. In other words, you're going to have to work for this one. Be transported to a world of fantasy, where plush blue velvets envelop the space and a giant halo is suspended from the roof.

The bevvies will champion local brewers and distillers, with space for a range of Martinis using Hickson House gin and Mai Tais with Plantation rum. The D.L.M will also be stocked with Australian beers and sours from Lord Howe Island Brewing Co. and Yalumba wines.  

The food menu has been created in collaboration with the popular Japanese burger venue, Ume Burger and will include snacks like fried chicken, chips, onion rings, house-made kimchi and Japanese pickles. 

The D.L.M will also hero Australian entertainers and musicians with live music every night. Artists will include hip hop artist Kween G, bonetwister, Moth King, rhythm and blues soul artist E.J. Worland, funk-synth trio FOSHE, DJ King O.P.P, master magician Jackson Aces and many more.

What’s on


If reality has been getting you down lately, we have a pretty dreamy solution. Enter: Eternityland, a pop-up fantastical theatre experience full of multi-roomed adventures, wild storytelling, live music, crazy characters, circus performances, massive and surreal set-design, secret bars and legit battles with ancient heroes from myths past.  It all sounds like too much to be true – but, we assure you. True, it really is.  Akin to stepping into the worlds of Squid Game or Westworld (but without all the grim torture and death bits), Eternityland is an interactive theatre experience that looks like nothing we've ever seen in Sydney before. Having already taken London, New York and Shanghai by storm, this incredible immersion on the streets of Barangaroo is designed to be a ‘choose your own adventure’ experience, with visitors invited to enter in small groups, wherein you are made to follow your own curiosity while travelling through each room, encountering wild mythological characters, evil monsters, temptations (to avoid, or to not avoid) and general magical mayhem along the way.  Run by Sydney’s most mysterious bar, The Department of Myth and Legend, visitors to Eternityland's parallel dimension will come face-to-face with the likes of a villainous clown, a monster’s mother, a lazy knight, a lost member of a royal family and a cool as a cucumber cowboy – along with a whole host of other weird and wonderful minions and sidekicks.  The creation of Danielle Harvey, the mastermind
