“One of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

The door is quite hard to find. But when you find it... ouch. Just sit and order a fresh apple juice with whisky and enjoy your stay here

“Ditto that! Best bar in Sydney”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We spent a lazy afternoon in Sydney working hard at a pub crawl and found this gem in the Sydney book in the hotel. It took us 15 minutes once we were in the area to locate this beauty. Well worth it with lit candles all around the bar, great feel, and cool vibe. If you taxidermy is something you don't enjoy take a pass but this place is just a beauty!

Well worth the trip. We laughed so hard when we finally made it mostly at how hard it was to find the place.

I'd go back regularly if I lived here......

When we arrived we talked to the bartenders and told them about the Sydney Small bars pub crawl that we mentioned in the Welcome to Sydney Tourist book. Their reaction? "We're in a book?" Priceless.....

Enjoy!!!

“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Great cocktails that weren't too over priced and fabulous decor. If you blink you will miss it as it isn't advertised out the front and we walked past twice. Perfect for Friday night drinks.
