Bravofly’s Top Five Awesome Bars in Sydney
However, at Bravofly, we would suggest you take the time to check out the city’s thriving nightlife- both for networking purposes and to relax after a gruelling day in the boardroom – and in our opinion, these top five bars are ones you have to visit!
1) Pocket: Located deep in down town Darlinghurst, Pocket was actually one of the first small bars to ever set up shop in Sydney, and it has survived this long because it really is a classic hole in the wall; it’s especially famed for its quirky Crepes and killer cocktail menu.
2) The Owl House: Fellow Darlinghurst bar, The Owl House, isn’t much to look at on the outside – it’s a small townhouse on Crown Street, but it’s one of the city’s secret gems! Its menu is delightfully unique – with highlights including smoked bone marrow and oxtail croquettes, and its cocktail menu is among the best in all of Sydney.
3) Roosevelt: Moving out of Darlinghurst and into Potts Point, we have one of Sydney’s most elegant bars for you in Roosevelt. It’s the stuff of 1920’s gentlemen’s clubs, all grand chandeliers and crystal decanters, with some modern twists and is known for its great selection of whiskies.
4) Jimmy Liks: Staying in the upscale Potts Point area, you should definitely take the opportunity to visit urban-hipster hotspot Jimmy Liks. This seductively-lit South Asian bar is effortlessly young, energetic and friendly, and is known for its sumptuous Asian-style cocktails.
5) The Cotton Thief: This Cremorne based bar is a place with a story to tell; specifically, the Cotton Thief’s! Named in honour infamous cotton-thief-come-good, William Brown, the bar is run in his honour by his descendants, and the story alone makes it a must see – it’s a part of Sydney history!
