Our Story



A Surry Hills Favourite.



Enjoy a drink on the popular balcony overlooking Crown Street or sit by the award winning cocktail bar. Watch live sport in the public bar downstairs or mingle in the character-filled sunken courtyard.


With a delectable share food menu, expertly crafted cocktails and unrivalled service, the Clock Hotel is the place to be.




Like a reliable timepiece, you can count on The Clock.



We’ve been a part of the Surry Hills community since 1863. Originally The Exchange, The Clock Hotel changed its name directly after its iconic clock tower was added in 1969, as this had been a nickname given by the local community.




Dog Friendly.



Dogs OK Anytime. Werewolves OK before midnight. Four-legged furry friends are always welcome at The Clock, as long as they’re on leads - and don’t grow fangs. We’ll even tolerate the occasional bit of howling at a full moon, but only in the front bar, on the street, or in the courtyard.
