Time Out Sydney

Head out east for a well-heeled bar crawl

10 William Street

It pays to remember 10 William Street is first-and-foremost a bar with a penchant for crazy, raw, wild and feral Italian wines. The walls downstairs are covered in Sharpie signatures from the who’s who of vino: there’s cigar chewing Friulano Fulvio Bressan’s paw print and Tuscan producers Massa Vecchia have left their mark just over the stacks of Moritz tinnies.

Easy Tiger

There’s definitely a Boogie Nights meets Thin White Duke thing happening at this small bar under the Unicorn Hotel. There're leggy blonde waitress whizzing by in high waisted gold-sequinned hotpants and white rollerskates. On the snack-front, it’s a carb-and-cheese-heavy menu playing on '70s entertaining classics like fondue, they’re playing the Stones and Creedence on the hi-fi and classic '70s films on the TVs.

The Print Room

This new bar from bartender Leeroy Petersen is located above Durty Nelly's, but don't expect any Irish regalia to be decking the halls here - this is a prettied up cocktail bar with more rum, less Guinness and not a Celtic rose in sight.

The Wine Library

Wine Library is an entirely awesome wine bar from the folks who brought you Woollahra Italian restaurant Buzo. People are crammed in any which way they can fit, lining the walls, propping up the zinc bar and filling the back room. In fact, short of sitting on the toilet with your glass of chardonnay, there's very little wriggle room in the 48-seat bar.
