    Cocktails are amazing and inventive. The smokey Rob Roy is literally smoked.

    Fantastic whisky selection, especially Scotch. Appropriately served in Glencairn glassware and with a dropper of distilled water.

    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???!!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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?

    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

    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

    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!

    Try the cocktail made with muscat and cream - more like a dessert than a cocktail but does the job all the same. Delicious!

    This 'new' bar is the latest tenant of the excellent hidey-hole at the back of the Kirketon. No queue and *superb* maitre d'. Place really needs table service. Some bar staff stuffy and wait is long.
