There was no sign on the street except for a ‘secret’ door. We went there for the oyster deal. It was good although the oysters were on the small side. A good place to go for drinks after work.

There is no better way to finish off an evening in Surry Hills. Look for the green door - it's unassuming, with a respectable whiskey list, moody lighting, comfy booths and unfalteringly friendly staff. These guys are doing it best.

Tucked away behind a green door in Surry Hills lies a hidden gem. A quirky, funky and overall good vibe bar. Specializes in whiskey and has a fantastic cocktail list with a modern twist. Ordered the irish penicillin and the whiskey buck, delightful! The staff...More
