Time Out Sydney

Welcome to Neutral Bay’s thriving Grosvenor Street precinct. Take in a drink at Blue Plate, with its impressive chandelier and flocked curtains. To the left is a fully stocked bar, where diners can enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the olde-worlde lounge area. You can’t go past the extensive American cocktail list ­– you’ll recognise most of the names from Tom Cruise’s boozy 1988 flick. The Alabama Slammer, served in retro jam jars flown in from the US where they once concealed moonshine, makes Blue Plate’s antebellum style all the more authentic. For something more serious, the Prohibition Style Long Island Iced Tea will make an honest man or woman out of anyone. Mop it all up with a plate of southern-style calamari with anchovy mayonnaise, or risk failing to make it to the dinner table at all. Although the starters are quite substantial, so you could just as easily sit at the bar and order another round of Buffalo wings and Mint Juleps.
