Description: Subtle pirate theme'd, cocktail slinging, Rock n' Roll watering hole.We can be found at an unmarked wooden sliding door at the lower end of Foveaux Street in Surry Hills. No X marking the spot, so if you find it, half the battle has been won! Venture in you'll find the bartender's slinging cocktails behind a large wood panel fit out playing rock n' roll and blues. There's a large array of spirits including barrel's of home spiced rum, singapore sling's and sherry.And if you're just looking for a quick beer/cider, you'll find beers selected from our bartender's favourite local brewery's...

Having been to many of Sydney's much hyped bars and been disappointed, Button proved to be a hidden gem in Surry Hills. The real credit goes to the staff who were welcoming and friendly. A definite new favourite.

I'm a huge bar fan and finally decided to write a review on a bar in which I expected more. Sadly my first review has to be on a rather negative note. I love Stitch and Pocket and I heard Button was part of that group. Just moved into the Surry Hills area so I thought I'd give it a... More

Cool little trendy bar. Dim lighting and if you blink you might miss it on the street. Has an American prohibition bar feel to it. Good selection of cocktails but can get very crowded very quickly as it's quiet small. Good for after work drinks with friends.

I loved this place, it's a kind of pirate/ Rum bar but a cool one, it's fun, they've got a huge selection of rum, a massive cocktail list. Highly recommend it!

It's a bar. That's about it. Raucous, tacky and very loud 80's rock... (that's probably considered 'retro' by the kids of today). Any conception you might have of a swashbuckling pirates den evaporates the moment your assaulted by the cheap 110 decibel pub music on entry. Flanny wearing glassie kept stealing our glasses of water from right under our noses,... More

This place is tiny. A few booths, a long communal table in the centre, and the bar. Dimly lit and with a "pirate" theme, it very much reminded me of Stitch Bar (I believe by the same guys). The music was non-stop blues (love!), and the waiters and bar staff were friendly. With your drink you are offered free pistachios,... More

I love the atmosphere at Button Bar. A great cosy space, great quirky music and killer drinks. They make a mean Old Fashioned. Yum. It gets packed and a little loud at times (Fri, Sat nights) and it's not as good then, losing some of that relaxed feel. You come here for great cocktails, and they do the classics really... More

Can be hard to find - not more than a door on the street but inside is fabulous. The waiters are exotic and gorgeous and the cocktails were delicious.

I have only been once I was recommended to come try here by a local and I was most certainly very happy I have to admit I did walk right past it the first time But once I had gotten in i loved it, we only went in for drinks. And there was an amazing variety to choose from

Matt and luca are amazing. They enjoy being creative, so tell them what you want and your wish is their command. Matt is a fountain of knowledge, and Angela's attentiveness add to the ambience of your overall drinking pleasure. The atmosphere and music create a very warm, friendly, welcoming feel. Step into button where you loose all track of time...... More
