We met up with friends here during the week, the bar was quiet, but it is a great set up, really cool atmosphere and great furniture/ décor! We had some great cocktails here, and brilliant service from Charlie the "geezer"!

Friendly staff with an extensive cocktail list. Walls covered with street art, so if your date is boring the walls will keep you entertained. Some chairs more comfy than others, get there early if you want a table.

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,

suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of
Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues
feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning.
