  • The Long Goodbye
    A welcomed step away from zany themes to reveal a more sophisticated and fun bar, without the need for pretentiousness. The unique drink ordering system makes you wonder why nobody thought of it sooner: 9/10

  • The Flinders
    Yes it's back. After shuttering its doors for two years, The Flinders re-emerged at the very end of 2016 sporting a revamped look and 3am close: 8/10

  • Butter
    Shoes, chicken and slushies - possibly the strangest combination for a Sydney small bar yet: 6/10

    Sydney Pub Crawls
    What better way to explore small bars than a pub crawl. These two routes are particularly easy as they are flat, well connected to transport and can be easily modified. The pub crawls include closing times, reviews, and interactive Google maps showing the routes and bars.
