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
The solid sandstone building at 100 George Street in the Rocks was built as a mariners' church more than 100 years ago. A place where all the sins of the sea could be confessed before starting the next voyage back into perilous waters. These days the original façade is still there, although the Sunday service now comes with drinks instead of sermons.
BAR100 is a gigantic space with soaring ceilings, stained glass windows, and arches cut into the sandstone. The 12-metre-long brass bar stretches along the back wall. Spread across four levels, the bar houses the 1909 VIP lounge, a private terrace, the 8Brothers Italian Restaurant as well as the aptly titled Chapel Lounge area.
