    Like 3,000 different whiskeys to select from. Also order the charcuterie with your drinks. Feels like a NYC speakeasy.

    Cocktails are generally good though can be unstable recently with the new intro to the retro flavours. It's currently a bit too funky for my liking. Expresso martini with whipped cream on top???!!

    Tucked away little speakeasy. Closes a little early for what it is, though

    Amazing cocktails, that are actually worth the Sydney cocktail price.

    Eau de Vie is a bartender’s bar, with classic drinks, rare spirits and some of the best damn drinks in Sydney. http://barchick.com/find-a-bar/sydney/eau-de-vie

    The Blazer is always in season, but particularly good as a winter nightcap. Also, they do a Rye and Gosling's; not as dreamy as its namesake.

    Go for the Mule 😉

    There is no more awards in the world that this slick joint did not collect. Great drinks, sharply run operations - we wish them long time living.

    Martinis are a winner.

    Ppl milling around, lost, out the front check in here. Superb food, exquisite cocktails - try hot zapaca blazer! - delicious speakeasy atmospere

  • Jordan S.

    Order an 'Old Fashioned' with Zacapa Rum. You won't regret it.

  • Louis Vuitton

    Broody and luxe, this connoiseur's bar houses a unique collection of antique cocktail accessories. Play the part: sip champagne from Marie Antoinette glasses and Negronis from cut crystal tumblers.

    An understated exterior conceals one of the most atmospheric bars around, while it is on the pricey side, the presentations are some of the best in the world.

  • Stephenie R.

    Avoid this place on Tuesday. The waitress is a real cow!

    Stephenie Rodriguez · September 13, 2011

    Look for Handsome Phil, the coolest bartender in Sydney. I'm a fan!

  • Jackie M.

    It might not be kosher, but they make a beery good cocktail! Ask Luke Redington for a Bloomsbury Bitter. He makes it using a beer syrup he whips up using Knappstein’s lovely lager. Read more

    Jackie McMillan · July 11, 2011
  • Aaron W.

    Zacapa Old Fashioned. Outstanding.

    Aaron Wallis · June 16, 2011

    Be amazed at the selection of spirits, cocktails and skills!

  • Elif D.

    Serious the cocktails here were a rip off, and tasted horrid. Maybe we went on a day with a shitty bar tender, but expected more from a place with such good reviews?

    Elif Durur · May 31, 2011
  • AskMen

    If Luke is working, ask to try his own "Bloomsbury Bitters" cocktail. It's as close to beer as a cocktail comes - even more manly than the James Bond favorite, the martini. Read more

    AskMen · May 5, 2011
  • Jackie M.

    Ask Luke Redlington to make you his award winning Bloomsbury Bitter - a cocktail that drinks like a beer!

    Jackie McMillan · February 16, 2011
  • Oliver B.

    One of the best cocktail bars in Sydney and also one of the best Whisky selections.

    Oliver Bassett · January 18, 2011
  • Denea G.

    One of Sydney's best cocktail bars. Ask the bartender to make you his favorite or sift through the menu of staff signature drinks and fancy classics. Either way you'll be back

    Denea GourmetRabbit · December 19, 2010
  • Amie

    Do these guys do cocktails! Engaging, helpful table service, creative drinks made by connoisseurs plus a New York feel make this underground lounge a winner. Spotted a serious whiskey selection too!

    Amie · November 12, 2010

    Great little hidden bar. Just leave it up to the bartenders if you can't decide :)
