Situated on the lower ground floor, you walk down stairs towards a doorway with a red glow about it, almost daring you to step inside. Uncle Ming’s is a funky wine & dumpling bar and I loved it! It seemed a popular spot for a...More

Great whiskey cocktails, even the ones that aren’t on fire. The dumplings are delicious and the atmosphere overall is fun. A great choice for cocktails in the CBD.

the must have would be Shanghai Roller. We ordered it every time we were there. I was there only 10 seconds the first time we went, because the idea of having dim sum in such a dingy and bar place is just too bizarre. The...More

Really cool little bar with a great range of cocktails and whiskeys! The toilets are a must visit - very funny. We had late night dumplings are they were yummy. This is a very cool underground bar that is well worth a visit!

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
