This is the only bottle shop I go to in Sydney for beer because the selection is good. Rotates often, and they usually have two beers on tap that you can fill up growlers of. Great place.

I literally stumbled over The Oak Barrel after a meeting just a couple of doors down (and no I had not already been drinking!). At first inspection I found the line-up of beers in the front fridges...certainly better than most average bottle shops but not...More

These guys are amazing, with over 800 Craft beers, 400 whiskeys & lotsa natural wine. Service is second to none and a must visit for anyone staying in Sydney.

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
