A super cool bar bar behind the Barbershop Bar. Hidden and secret feeling with an air of mystery. Great cocktails. Dimly lit, secretive and cozy feeling.

So looking forward to this visit - my husband loves his whiskey! Difficult bar to find but once we arrived I was disappointed in the décor, I was expecting more of a 'speakeasy" feel, all we got was so dark you couldn't read the menu!!...More

Gosh; hard to review such a cool spot. Heard about this place from a bar in London @bloomsburyclub and wanted to check it out. Everything about to screams hip and cool. Walk down an alley, then left, wait in a queue with a velvet red...More

I loved the feeling of going into a dark yard and going down some run down stairs into a place with no sign at all. They have done a great job with this speakeasy style and feel. Great decor, zillions of drinks, fun bartending. This...More

Awesome bar. Awesome staff. Awesome crowd. Brilliant cocktails. No menu just tell them what you are in the mood for and they will make it. Our barman didn’t miss the mark all night. Had a ball and the doorman is a classic! Extensive whisky menu...More

Love a great bar, especially one that prides itself on providing a unique service. Yes, the number and type of whiskeys, bourbons, and scotches here are superb - but what makes the place better is the bartenders. They KNOW what they are talking about, what...More

If you enjoy a Whiskey, you'll love this underground treasure. I haven't ever come across a bar like it. A little hard to find, but when you do, it has a great feel and atmosphere.

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
