We recommend the Old Fashioned, the Espresso drink and the Marshmallow Fizz. The service is great, and the drinks are amazing. We tried the scallops, the chicken croquet and the oysters. The food was good too, but small portions.

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of
Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues
feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning.
