This Must Be The Place

Cocktail Bar in Surry Hills & Darlinghurst

All Sydney's small bars seem to be dark, candlelit speakeasies with a dash of gangster chic, so it's refreshing to find this light, bright cocktail spot half a block from the Oxford Street strip. It specialises in something equally refreshing in spritzes: citric, perky blends of summery flavours. Tinned seafood conserves provide an offbeat accompaniment.

You may come across a pop-up theme. On our last visit it was all about bunker bartending: 'trying to maintain cocktail excellence in a post-apocalypse scenario'.
