Time Out Sydney

Charcuterie, Old Fashioneds and thou, all with an Argentinian twist

It’s either a slip of a bar that’s an extension of the perennially busy Argentinian restaurant, Porteno, or a great place to pull up a pew and enjoy the incredible charcuterie station and potentially catch a band, depending on the evening. Either way, you can still get the banana Old Fashioned (an easy to drink, easy to drunk mix of banana-infused whiskey sweetened with smoked maple syrup) that first had folks flocking. But test the mettle of head bartender Michael Nicolian - the moustachioed London native will whip up a gin Old Fashioned (fewer bananas in this one) or anything else out of the nerdy bartender playbook that comes to mind. Or just order a tiny beer - they have Estrella on tap. “It comes out the tap and it tastes like beer”, says the menu. It does, too.
