Music was good. Bartenders were nice but didn't know what a Jack Daniels and Splash of coke was? Funny, but still a good time. My guess is the guy was new. Chilled crowd, bouncer was a bit of a jerk but whatevs.

I love the Colombian for a quiet afternoon drink with friends along Oxford Street, as well as the nightlife and dancing later in the day. Bartenders here are always friendly - more than any other venue I've been to on Oxford Street - and drinks...More

I went there for a drink on a Saturday morning after a night out in the city. The security was extremely rude nasty and abusive towards me for no reason . Horrible experience . Racist pretentious staff. Never going there again.

It's a standard venue - sticky floors, unclean toilets, loud music, expensive drinks. The crowd seemed, generally, pretentious. On the plus side, it didn't have a cover charge, the music did have lyrics and the location was good.

The great thing about this venue, is the window seat and just watch people go by, I can do that for hours. This was a quiet Friday lunchtime, and we were almost the only customers, but it didn't bother us, we had plenty of people...More

I visited this bar alone. While the downstairs is busy,noisy and somewhat uninteresting the upstairs is much better. A very friendly barman made me an excellent Vodka Martini.Sensibly priced too - at the average Cocktail price of $17.00. Plenty of room upstairs and comfortable seating...More

Had a great night here on a Saturday. The music was great and the crowd diverse. The cage dancers very entertaining. We danced, we laughed, we sang!

I had a great night out with my partner at the Colombian. We were there on a thursday night and had a load of laughs at the karaoke. Drinks are moderately priced and the staff really friendly!

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of
Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues
feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning.
Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small
