It's the things that you won't find at Canvas that make it so special. You won't find wanky bartenders too involved in waxing lyrical about mixology to actually make you a drink or 100 types of bitters or a list a mile long. Nor will you find chilled beatz, or floaty cocktail waitresses. No, you'll just find nice dudes making good drinks with an impressive-yet-not-outrageous selection of booze. There'll be good tunes playing, comfortable seats and booths to do your drinking in and a very impressive mural on the wall of fish and birds, dancing together in a weightless ballet. Matisse would dig it. While the list, compared to Sydney and Melbourne cocktails bars of a similar style, is on the fruitier side of things there's every opportunity to just go omakase and let the group of crack bartenders do their thing, which might be anything from a straight up Negroni to a Boulavadiere - basically a backwards Manhattan. And the best thing? Drinking cocktails here won't send you broke. Canvas: good times and not a million bucks. We'll take two.
