Find a way in to the Soda Factory

Soda Factory

16 Wentworth Ave, Surry Hills

When you step off the street and enter the hot dog joint, you have to find your way through a secret entrance to get to this new bar. No, it’s not PDT in New York and you’re entering via a Coke machine door and not a phone booth, but you get the idea.

Inside the bar is stripped back and designed to look like a disused soda factory; the island bar that centres the room will be familiar to anyone who can remember a night at the old Mars Lounge, which used to occupy the site.

Featuring a late-night licence, you know the music will be sorted as the venture comes from Graham Cordery, of Experience Entertainment, who put on the entertainment at the ivy for a couple of years. They’re promising regular live music and cracking international DJ’s, and a licence that goes into the wee hours of the morning.


The drinks are taken care of by UK import, Mitchell Warters, who’s come direct from Richard Branson’s members-only Roof Gardens cocktail bar.
