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.
