Description: Subtle pirate theme'd, cocktail slinging, Rock n' Roll watering hole.We can be found at an unmarked wooden sliding door at the lower end of Foveaux Street in Surry Hills. No X marking the spot, so if you find it, half the battle has been won! Venture in you'll find the bartender's slinging cocktails behind a large wood panel fit out playing rock n' roll and blues. There's a large array of spirits including barrel's of home spiced rum, singapore sling's and sherry.And if you're just looking for a quick beer/cider, you'll find beers selected from our bartender's favourite local brewery's...

“Cool little space for a drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Hidden behind an unassuming facade, this place is a cool find. A moody candlelit room, a wall of spirits, and experienced hands pouring some excellent cocktails. Close to Central station. Take a stroll up Foveaux to Crown St for dinner.

“Wine bar hidden hideaway.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

If you can actually find the Button Bar you're in for a treat. Just a wooden door on Foveaux Street next to the taxi depot, inside is a gorgeous warm, dark, stylish wine bar. Hand crafted wooden interior, dim lighting, comprehensive wine list and delectable cheese platters. Super friendly staff make it a really fab night out. A rare treat, special, I've made this my local hang out. Not many places this good in Sydney.
