The Den

Bar in Salamanca Place & Battery Point

Among the string of dark drinking dens along Salamanca Pl, this Den has emerged as a shaft of light. Framed around a central fireplace and ranging over two levels, it's all lodge-in-the-woods style in non-woodsy Salamanca. There's a menu of share plates ($14 to $22) and bao buns, and gin rules the roost, with more than 60 on offer.
