The first time in the city we were recommended the place by the waitress of the restaurant we had dinner. The address in hand we arrived.No signs out. A dark alley to enter. You look around ,nothing . Someone there , asked, he opened a door and down the stairs we were looking to each other as to say where have we finished. BUT opening the door at the end of the stairs another world. Full o people, nice ambiance, good music. The bar is something to really see.Immense choice of whisky. The barmen really friendly. We loved the place so much that the next day we returned again with more friends with whom we were for a meeting in Sydney.

With over 70 types of whisky on offer, there's always something new to try at Baxter Inn. The bar tenders are knowledgeable and very helpful providing suggestions for a DIY whisky flight. I love the vibe of this speak easy.

We got recommended this place for an over night in Sydney. After the initial attempt to find it, we were able to venture in and stand in shocked awe.

Possibly the finest collection of whiskey I've seen before and the service was exceptional. Add to that an amazing old world atmosphere including candles and fire bells and we were hooked!

Lovely staff, constant peanuts, jazz-like atmosphere and fresh apple juice with whisky. Need I say more?

Just hold your breath entering the alley. Bin juice is not your friend.

Yes, if you don't know it's there, you may have trouble finding it.
We actually visited twice & were planning on a 3rd during a 6 day trip.
Dark alley, stairs to the basement & here you are.
I love the concept. The decor is fantastic The venue is cool. The drinks are delicious (it surprises me more bars don't do the juicing concept).
We do it at home but I've never actually seen it done at a bar.
The only reason I give it 4 instead of 5 is because it's pricey (but they can charge what they want, the place is cool).
