Even though it feels like it's about -4 degrees outside in Sydney these days, that doesn't stop these hospitality gurus from creating new and artistic spaces. If you're looking for something new to add to your to-do list this month, check out some of these new bars!
Deus Bar & Kitchen (Camperdown)
Deus Cafe has been revitalised with a new menu and relaxed industrial aesthetic. They offer an array of specialised cocktails and (of course) the classics. The space is large, with workshop-style fittings amongst scattered cafe racer motorbikes. It feels like its been here forever, but the addition of the grand bar across the room makes this place a new gem for Camperdown.
Beta Bar (CBD)
Set on the upper level of Alpha Restaurant, Beta Bar brings the best in everything mezze and cocktails. It's the kind of place which offers a throw-back to the traditional style hospitality of Greece by focussing on combinations of small-plate tapas with fragrant cocktails. The large exposed walls surrounding the accented seating gives the space an open and relaxed vibe. We definitely recommend the feta custard and duck-skin crisps with a Dirty Greek Martini.
Sitting where Zanzibar used to make its mark, Webster's brings a new industrial-style bourbon bar to the people of Newtown. Downstairs offers a warm and comfortable prohibition whiskey bar with all the trimmings, while the rooftop represents a quintessential 1950s Australian backyard vibe. They've got vinyl sessions spinning every weekend and we couldn't be more into it!
From the guys who brought you Lobo Plantation, comes the new (but old) bar deep within the city, Kittyhawk. The bar offers a Parisian atmosphere, which is carried all the way through the furniture, food and cocktail list! Boasting over 900 spirits, this place is definitely the next hangout for you and your cool AF friends with a healthy amount of time on your hands.
Tonic Lane (Neutral Bay)
A new gin bar has landed in Neutral Bay in the form of Tonic Lane! They've got all day food, but more importantly, this intimate little bar offers an extensive list of locally crafted gin from distilleries such as Poor Tom's and Four Pillars. The cocktail list is (of course) gin-focussed, with an array of various twists and interpretations which will turn even the most wary gin drinker. We recommend anything with West Winds Gin in it!
