Time Out Sydney

A late night lounge bar for city loving office workers

The evening’s agenda at this Sydney stalwart is sophisticated service, suits, scotch and sushi. Indulge in a little pre-GFC opulence while sinking back into the deep leather armchairs, and let one of the LBD-clad waitresses take your order (it’s table service only). Make it a classic with a top-shelf twist, like the flirty and fruity the She’ll Be Apples with Scotch and cloudy apple, or if you have a thing for aged spirits get ready to foot a hefty bill ­– there’s plenty on offer. Snacks come by the way of Sushi E and if you’re in late the supper menu is on till the early hours of the morning. Things may still be stuck in a former decade here, but they do it all convincingly enough to impress the inner-suit in any Sydneysider.
