Best bars Sydney, How do these rankings work?

1. Bulletin Place

Set up by three top bartenders, Bulletin Place is injecting lightning bolts into Sydney’s small bar scene. Every day the bartenders work with the (strictly Australian) produce to create five new original cocktails, with the daily changing menu written on butcher paper up on the wall.

2. The Wild Rover

This “Irish folk barn crossed with New York chic” is a buzzing Irish bar the likes of which you’ve probably never seen before. With over 200 varieties of whiskey and a creative cocktail menu, The Wild Rover is always a good choice. Try their tasty Guinness Punch – a spicy and sweet milkshake style drink.

3. Kittyhawk

Kittyhawk gets its inspiration from the day of August 25th, 1944, aka Liberation Day in Paris. This truly unique, sophisticated and historic cocktail bar shouldn’t be missed, located in the bustling CBD.

There’s something for everyone here, exceptional cocktails, an impressive backbar of spirits and a full list of wine, champagne and both draught and bottled beer!


4. Ode

This intimate Italian wine bar in Bondi is a top pick for date night, thanks to its flattering lighting, rich pasta dishes and natural organic wine list. Rotating wine on tap means you can drink as little – or as much – as you like, so no need to feel pressured into buying a bottle.


5. Employees Only

One of the world’s most famous bars came to Sydney with a bang, and now this New York-style cocktail bar and restaurant in the heart of Sydney’s CBD is a thriving spot for artisan cocktails. Indulge in top-of-the-range spirits and late night eats.

6. Old Mate’s Place

Looking for a rooftop bar to soak up that beaming Sydney sun? This library-vibes cocktail bar is your best shout. Climb 102 steps for a view (or y’know, take the lift) of the city skyline at this lush oasis with super tasty cocktails that will refresh you in no time. Well worth the effort.

7. Jacoby’s

Jacoby’s Tiki Bar is a colourful oasis where you can step back into a 1930s Polynesian-style space to sip on simply amazing cocktails. Forget about those sickly sweet tiki drinks you’re thinking of; these are fresh and exotic, with only the best tropical ingredients.
