Situated at the top of Sydney’s Macquarie Hotel; a venue for live music, micro-brewery and pub offering great food and meals as well as a long list of drinks. Established August 2009, Raval incorporated a gorgeous 100 capacity 1920s styled cocktail bar, a restaurant specialising in pub food, a corporate/business meeting room and a live music venue with the ability to transform and host private functions and formal sit down dinners.

Raval has hosted some of Australias more famous talent including Eskimo Joe and international acts like New Orleans legend John Cleary. Intimate atmosphere made it great for up and comers, bands in need of superb acoustics or bigger names wanting to allow more personal performances such as label showcases or fan shows. Raval also operated as a cocktail bar with Sydney’s best DJs providing the soundtrack to start the weekend off perfectly, whether settling in for a big one or warming up with pre’s and something delicious to eat.

Ravál was a purpose built cocktail bar designed to house a variety of live entertainment including Music, Cabaret, Burlesque, Theatre & Comedy. They served standard drinks as well as cocktails, as well as offering functions with special food and entertainment on par with the best pubs and hotels across not just Manly, but wider Sydney also.

raval_3Upon its opening in August 2009 Raval had become a firm favourite on the bar and pub scene for its brilliant sound and production, comfortable atmosphere and diverse entertainment policy. In January 2010 its Djs n’ Cocktails weekly Friday night dubbed ‘Listen Hear’ opened in fine form with a little help from Los Angeles funk powerhouse Music Man Miles of Breakestra.

The intimate size, comfy surrounds, great food and fantastic production made for an entertainment experience unlike any other in Sydney.
