Pop by this place close to 8 and it was still quite quiet. However, the crowd came in at about 9. If you would like to find a comfy spot, do arrive early. Ordered 2 drinks + the jaffers. They were all great and affordable!...More

A hidden gem..........tucked away in a basement this is casual, friendly, great music, and though a tad pricy the cocktails are absolutely delicious! Definitely worth another visit.

Just a perfect place for a nice cocktail, really fancy and great! The staff was really friendly with us. The palce is hidden a bit underground, great music, dark environment, perfect to be with friends and chat, and even better with a delicious cocktail!

Loved it. Well once we actually found it and were game to go down the stairs and investigate. It is a real hidden gem. So use google maps, then when it says “you have reached your destination” ignore the guitar shop sign, head in the...More

Definitely a hidden gem. - Friendly vibes, attentive staff, amazing drinks. - Highly recommend the cold tripper, I don't usually enjoy coffee cocktails, but this was great - Pineapple express was an excellent gin drink - The space is small, with low lighting. We got...More

Greeted by a tall and friendly pirate on arrival who took it upon himself (with success) to find us a seat in the packed bar. Delicious home made ginger beer. Great ambience. Great place

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
