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
This popular Sydney watering hole also doubles as an art gallery, holding about 30 shows each year. Aboriginal artist Fran Dunn is just one of the intriguing artists to have exhibited here and a permanent collection includes the work of Shona Wilson, Guy Hawson and many others. If you fancy an art lesson with your aperitif, there are free life drawing classes each Monday from 6.30pm; the model is supplied, but bring your own materials.
