5 hottest bars in Sydney

Don't miss these awesome cocktail bars. The hottest places to unwind after dark

A bar which is music to your ears

1. Mojo Record Bar

A bar which is music to your ears

Our all-time favourite bar

OK, so the clue’s in the name. Not only is it right across from a music store but it boasts a 700-record-strong back catalogue of tasty vinyl to drink to. So zap on Josh White’s dulcet tones and wash them down with Margaritas, Martinis and Mojitos. There’s also a wide range of craft beer, including the Two Metre Tall Hop Ale from Tasmania. Scared, yet? You should be. There’s nothing to eat here, but why should you care? Music is the food of the soul.

A new place of worship

2. Marble Bar

A new place of worship

Go putting on the ritz – though this amazingly, ornate, underground bar is part of the Sydney Hilton. Every marble slab, wood carving and bronze bust was dismantled, restored and reassembled, part of the old Adams Hotel, which was demolished in ‘68. And though your eyes will be bursting from their sockets, this cathedral of a bar not only fills your ears with live music Wednesday to Saturday but teases your taste buds with a mean cocktail list!

Tequila! She makes me happy!

3. Tio’s

Tequila! She makes me happy!

Tequila! She makes me happy! If that statement applies to you, then head on down Tio’s, one of Sydney’s speciality bars that focuses on a single drink (though they do let you wash it down with a beer!) This dark cave, and its neon sign over the door, is just the place for a Margarita, a Tequila Sunrise and, of course, the old favourite, shooters with salt and lime! Want to meet your hangover? It’s already here!

4-14 Foster St, Surry Hills   Tel:

From the fruit of vine to your palate

4. 121 BC

From the fruit of vine to your palate

This wine bar, dedicated solely to the Italian cultivars, is the place to uncork a bottle or four. What’s more, you’ll truly be able to afford four. 121BC is renowned for its value and its casual, inexpensive bar menu (which changes daily) – thus rendering you capable of toeing a straight line home. The service is fantastic and it’s a sweet, laidback setting. What more could you ask for? Another glass?

The perfect beach bar for sundowners

5. The Shore Club

The perfect beach bar for sundowners

Three levels – and every one packed? This bar, on Sydney’s Manly Beach, is THE place for locals and travellers alike. It’s the perfect spot to watch the sun go down in time with your drink! Winning pretty much every award since its opening, it is fresh and funky. A blue & white maritime theme permeates its bars (DeeBar, Shore Club and rooftop Moet and Chandon Lounge), but then again, those are the colours of Manly Beach! The menu is comfort food with a twist. The booze is endless. Our advice - get there early!

36-38 South Steyne, Manly Beach   Tel: +61 2 9977 6322
