Red Lily is an exclusive little bar tucked away in a quiet Darlinghurst backstreet, on Crown Lane. Positioned behind Luke Nguyen's Red Lantern on Riley, Red Lily is a trendy nook to either have a drink whilst waiting for a table in the restaurant, or linger over Saigon street-style bar snacks.
Red Lily is reminiscent of old Saigon with its Indochine interior meets back room drinking parlour. Red Lily specialises in delectable Saigon street snacks, but a few restaurant favourites do make an appearance.
The menu is geared to being perfect paired with the Asian inspired drinks on offer, with ingredients such as coconut water, kafir lime and Thai basil all making appearances.
The wine list features a good mix of international and Australian drops.
