Time Out Sydney

This venue is closed

Hunky Dory Social Club is a lot bigger than you'd surmise. There's the restaurant downstairs (Bruno's); the well-stocked middle bar complete with two enormous stuffed peacocks taking pride of place over the counter; and the upstairs, which is mainly a giant balcony with a small indoor bar jutting off to the side. The menu, presented inside a Little Golden Book (ours is Lady and the Tramp), is all about riffing on the classics. The Mrs Millers Martinez (the Martinez is basically a very wet Martini, made with sweet vermouth) is tarted up with cherry and pear. The bar's take on a White Lady is the Killer White Lady with the addition of orange blossom and Mozart Dry – a chocolate spirit – to a crisp mix of gin, lemon juice and Cointreau. The bar opens its doors at noon, which means you can get in nice and early for a Sunday session (or even a cheeky weekday lunch) and beat the crowds. It’s also a brilliant time to visit a bar as you get the full attention of the bar staff. Not to mention the opportunity to take full advantage of the outdoor area without the crush. Either way, it’s hunky dory.
