Blending classical music and urban life into a unique setting this Winter

Home » Blending classical music and urban life into a unique setting this Winter

It’s the underground bar that’s hosting some of the city’s coolest rumbles and quirky events.   From Whiskey and Scotch nights to old school face-to-face dating nights, burlesque and classical music, it’s the brainchild of two navy servicemen.  Our recent visit to the Irish Whisky rumble was a great excuse to celebrate the finest in celtic malt and knock back a few.

So what next?

As a first in Sydney nightlife, Soultrap Bar together with The Chamber Project will bring together classical music and urban underground life to create an intimate afternoon or evening of music and culture.  As part of an ongoing series of events, Soultrap aims to provide you with an up close, musical experience from the very best in classical music, allowing you to immerse yourself in the magic of sound.


On each night, a classical band will perform, in a casual setting, where you can relax, eat, drink and listen. Award winning Musicians who have performed at iconic venues including the Sydney Opera House will be going back to their roots in a relaxed and comfortable setting to introduce classical music in a different environment.

With a series of events already locked away throughout June, July and August 2019 the line-up will feature musicians such as Ike See, a Violinist who started winning national awards at the age of 10 and is currently in the Australian Chamber Orchestra, and Caroline Hopson, a Violinist who performs regularly with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Opera Australia Orchestra and the Australian Chamber Orchestra.







The Chamber Project will be held twice a month with June’s events taking place across the long weekend and will follow suit throughout the year across various afternoons and evenings with a different line up of musicians and music each month such as Nexas Quartet a Sydney ensemble that promotes the musical plurality of the saxophone with the rhythms and sounds of Buenos Aires as part of their Tango de Saxos performance.

Choose from a number of ticket options starting from $39 per person or indulge a little with a loved one or friend with the ultimate experience for two at $129 which includes entertainment, guaranteed table seating, cocktail of choice including the aptly named ‘Full Symphony’ or ‘Undertone’ and a charcuterie and cheese board with accompaniments, perfect for sharing.
