“It's a delightful absinthe experience”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

This is the type of place you go to enjoy the experience and theatre of drinking absinthe. Forget all the 'green fairy' stuff, it's a taste of Parisian sophistication in the heart of Sydney and the staff are fabulous experts in their field. There is an unrivalled selection of absinthe and the drink is to be savoured - it's about taking your time to soak up the atmosphere. The service is exceptional and it could certainly be enjoyed for a special occasion, but then it would also make a wonderful weekly event. There is a 3 drink maximum and no food served, so my advice is to go pre-dinner as your taste buds will come out tingling and you'll enjoy a special meal afterwards.
