This bar has an amazing history and great stories behind the fine crafted furniture and great drinks on offer. Bar manager was a great guy. We visited on one of the evenings where live music was being played. Great atmosphere all round.

So much character. The Doss House had just opened two weeks ago and is situated in the Rocks. It's a small place but a great find. There are 4 different small rooms plus an outside area. Being a heritage building, it is just a really cool place for a pub/whiskey place. If you're tall, like me...watch your head in the doorways.
We had a great cheese plate, a sampling of whiskeys and a couple pints of Guiness. The staff were great. Friendly and knowledgeable.

Thank Jim B

This is a Whiskey and Gin bar, but you can also get a cheese and meat platter when your feeling a little snacky.
It is a very small location, and not the easiest to find, but worth the explore.
It is noisey when busy and when people have had a few drinks of course.
As with most bars in Australia, they are not designed for comfort or conversation. However, the choice and quality of whisky and gin here will soon make you relax.
Live music is always great and they have some good talent playing here.
The staff are lovely and very attentive. They definitely know the quality and differences with the Whisky and Gin. They listened to what each person liked or disliked and expertly picked something for each. On top of that the Guinness was good.
