Bottlerocket Bar & Cafe is the Shoalhaven's only boutique cocktail bar and cafe. Step inside and you will delight at the impressively stocked bar, musically inspired decor, French oak wine barrels, retro chandeliers and sofas that beckon. The friendly and relaxed atmosphere is complemented by the happy and helpful staff who are very passionate about cocktails, great wine and boutique beer. If you're driving, there's no need to miss out as Bottlerocket has a great selection of non alcoholic treats that will become fast favourites including Virgin Pina Coladas and Daiquiris. Bottlerocket also hosts regular events such as live music, trivia and theme nights. Bottlerocket is a 21 and over bar and cafe making it a perfect location for a business meeting, or quiet catch up with friends.

We both absolutely love Bottlerockets! We have been back several times as the drinks, service and atmosphere are great. Huge cocktail menu, decent food menu for a bar, and the bar itself it quite quirky and homey. Love it!

Could easily have walked by this place if it hadn't been recommended. It is worth finding. Lot of nostalgic music posters on the walls. Well priced drinks and good pizzas.
