As a once only visit venue this is a must see, down an alley, around a corner and behind a door is a dodgy staircase to an amazing underground bar! Staff know their stuff, strut the bar and climb the stairs for your unique whisky...More

Great hidden bar tucked away in alleyway of Sydney CBD. Huge variety of drinks on offer. Full and very lively for a Tuesday night. We googled how to get there but no sign to the bar. Went to down the alley and found The Duke...More

Googled and found this place. Entrance is through a lane way where u are confronted with a cocktail bar on your left and an English pub on your right. We went to the bar, but it wasn’t the right place, we were so confused so...More

I am a bit of a sucker for these bars after having been to Sneaky Tonys in Chinatown in Northbridge Perth. SO I tried this place and certainly wasn’t disappointed, On this night it was busy and the music was playing and a crowd was...More

Never thought a whiskey bar could be fun but this one is. We had to wait to get in but when we arrived it had a vibe that I enjoyed. A nice chilled atmosphere and an array of drinks that are as nice to drink...More

After a seemingly long walk from Circular Quay, we found the Baxter Inn down an alley. The Baxter Inn is unmarked; we had to ask a waiter from the Clarence where it was. Once we found it, we went downstairs into the underbelly of Sydney....More

A super cool bar bar behind the Barbershop Bar. Hidden and secret feeling with an air of mystery. Great cocktails. Dimly lit, secretive and cozy feeling.

So looking forward to this visit - my husband loves his whiskey! Difficult bar to find but once we arrived I was disappointed in the décor, I was expecting more of a 'speakeasy" feel, all we got was so dark you couldn't read the menu!!...More

I loved the feeling of going into a dark yard and going down some run down stairs into a place with no sign at all. They have done a great job with this speakeasy style and feel. Great decor, zillions of drinks, fun bartending. This...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
