So you’ve hit your local one too many times and it’s time to try something new. But where to start? With beergardens, holes in the wall, licensed lounges and gourmet pubs all vying for your attention on any given weekend we really are spoilt for choice in Sydney. While I promise to bring you the best of the best (all in good time …) let’s kick off the inspiration with some of the best cocktail bars, wine bars and beer cafes that Sydney has to offer.
Jimmy Liks in Potts Point – the closest I’ll ever get to having a cocktail named after me
Blu Horizon in the Shangri-La’s stunning bar with million dollar views
Madame Fling Flong in Newtown offers a seemingly never-ending cocktail menu
Mezzaluna Ristorante Italiano in Potts Point gives you the opportunity to shake your cocktail maker and learn from the best in their cocktail classes.
Vini in Surry Hills for an all Italian wine selection

Delicado in McMahon’s Point for a fiery Spanish twist
Wine Odyssey in the Rocks gives you the option to sample a taste (25ml), a half glass (75ml) or a glass (150ml) of any one of the 200 Australian wines on offer.
