Smack-bang on Darlinghurst Road, Hinky Dinks takes inspiration from a 1950s cocktail club. The funky Kings Cross dive is all about the red bar stools, chequerboard lino floor and kitsch knicknacks. There's nothing cutesy about what happens behind the bar here, though. The bartenders really know their stuff and you're guaranteed a great drink whether you're downing an alcoholic milkshake or a Mexican-inspired cocktail. Bar snacks come in the form of American-style small plates.
