“Great cocktails”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

This cocktail bar lays in the nice are of Glebe. The cocktails are awesome and the atmosphere is always good. Great for a Friday night or for a first date. Seats are spread out, so you can also sit on the rooftop outside.

“Awesome bar for drinks and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

Great spot to hang out with friends and catch up. Has a nice ambiance and drinks / food are excellent to start the weekend on. This bar also has integrity as I lost my phone in this place and when all was given up on ever finding it, I called the bar to check and they had the phone safely stored away for me to pick up. They even had it charged. This to me says a lot about this bar and am writing to say that I will be calling this place the bar I would come back to.

“Funkiest Cocktail and Tapas Bar in the Inner West!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

If I had to name the best thing about living in the Inner West, being around the corner from Different Drummer would probably be it! Great cocktails, great tapas, great service and a softly lit, dark and intimate atmosphere. Perfect!

“Nice place, great happy hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2012

Went with a few friends for birthday drinks.

Great happy hour on Saturday night - 2 for 1 cocktails.Individual cocktails around ~$15 each. Great cocktail variety.

Nice establishment - feels a bit like a small 3 storey house that has been converted into a bar. Great atmosphere.

Service was OK - nothing spectacular

“A great place for after work drinks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2012

My colleagues and I recently visited the Different Drummer to celebrate a workmates upcoming wedding and had a fantastic night. We booked part of the undercover beer garden which was plenty of space for a night of fun. The bar staff were very knowledgble and were able to give great reccomendations of cocktails and the tapas menu was detailed and suited everyones taste.
