Definitely a hidden gem. - Friendly vibes, attentive staff, amazing drinks. - Highly recommend the cold tripper, I don't usually enjoy coffee cocktails, but this was great - Pineapple express was an excellent gin drink - The space is small, with low lighting. We got...More

Greeted by a tall and friendly pirate on arrival who took it upon himself (with success) to find us a seat in the packed bar. Delicious home made ginger beer. Great ambience. Great place

We had such a great Friday night. We arrived early at 4pm and we were instantly greeted by staff. Lewis was so helpful and friendly and nothing was too much. It quickly filled up at 6pm, the old school music started cranking and the drinks...More

Hard to find bar but worth it in the end. It is eclectic and cool. The cocktails are awesome and they do have food (toasted sandwiches). If I lived in Sydney, I would be in there often for girls night. :-)

This is the only place in Sydney we went to twice. Kind of a speakeasy, a bit hidden but not too hard to find. Nice ambiance, and creative menu of cocktails that made it back to the States with me. I had something flaming but...More

Hard to find but worth the effort. We walked past it even though we knew where it was supposed to be. Cosy little below ground bar. Friendly staff. Funky vibe and fantastic cocktails with a bit of a kick! We will be back!

If you want a custom cocktail made by a handsome and charming bartender, go to Grandmas! Decor is kitschy- knitting; figurines, slogans...all generate fun discussions. Check it out!

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
