The Baxter Inn - Sydney
How could you not like the old school cool of The Baxter Inn? Good looking fellas in suspenders pour drinks, there are 360 premium whiskies sitting in neat rows behind a fairy-lit bar and a fantastic Australian wine list boasts a whole lot of Shiraz. Hidden in a nondescript laneway off Clarence Street, this secret basement-level bar should be on everyone’s must-visit list.
Dynamic duo Anton Forte and Jason Scott from Shady Pines have yet again succeeded in creating one of the hippest drinking joints in town. Just remember to order your whiskey 'neat' – that’s what the purists do.
