A hidden bar tucked away in potts point. It has a really cool atmosphere - classy, dark and cosy (great for a date!) with comfortable seats and friendly staff. They have an extensive drinks menu categorised by fun headings eg. "elegant, sassy and fun" and "boozy, strong and all things manly". They also serve food and have a private dining room but we came after a dinner at The Apollo (around the corner) and were more than content with a few cocktails.
A sleek new bar in the cross but without the sleaze of all the others. This is more of a sit down & enjoy a fancy cocktail type of bar. I don't think they allow people to stand as we had to wait for a table for a few minutes. We decided to have a bit of fun & try one of the big cocktails to share. It came out in a huge trophy cup with loads of long colourful straws. It was great fun & tasted nice but by the time they fill the whole cup with crushed ice I don't think there was all that much of the drink in there for 4 people. Nice bar though & will probably venture out at some point. A good place to go for a drink before or after dinner when you're not one who wants to be hitting the kings cross club scene.
If I promise to say how wonderful this place is, will you promise not to go there?
Simply put the best Cocktails in Sydney bar None! I would list the entire ensemble of bars in Sydney that try and come close, and the ones I thought was up there, but Truelocal never publishes my reviews if I dare mention competitor.
So allow me to paint a picture, walk through the seedy underbelly which is Kings Cross and be whisked back to a by-gone era of great drinks and customer service which will knock your socks off!
As lovely and as intimate as the Roosevelt is, it means that you often have to wait to get a seat. But that's how things are when you make the perfect cocktail bar. I haven't had a bad cocktail here so I would recommend everyone of them, and though they range all around the $25 mark, they are worth every cent.
I have plenty of favourites, so no point listing them here, just to say you can't go wrong. Start with your favourite base and and let the bartenders do their magic. Plenty of show, without the tacky flare you get from a Bryan Brown or Tom Cruise movie, but at the end of the day it's all about the taste and it's the drink which will make you come back for me.
They also have a restaurant by I have never made it to there. Very popular so I can't imagine it being bad.
