Black-tea ice cubes, sultana swizzle sticks, honeycomb, vodka, gin, rye and more all shaken and stirred and muddled and served for your pleasure - meet the drinks (and their makers) you'll find at the year's biggest cocktail carnival
A goodtime bar that keeps on giving, the Rose occupies the hightraffic terrain of Cleveland Street at the mouth where Broadway melts into Newtown. It’s tough country yet this rose flowers in every department and the human traffic from the nearby Seymour Centre and Sydney University ensure it’s always fizzing with fun and bursting with uni students. The front bar is killer, with crowd-pleasers and envelope pushers on tap and a cocktail list that gets you where you want to go fast. Out back is a beer garden dotted with bench seats and big wooden tables and an open kitchen dishing out pizza and pub grub. And there’s even a bocce area. The fit-out is just as fun with an ever-changing array or murals outside and ceiling frescoes, stone cherubs and laughing clowns abounding inside.
