I don’t like whiskey or any other drinks like it, but that is no reason not to visit the Baxter Inn. Great vibe and always an interesting crowd to observe which changes constantly through the course of the evening - which rather highlights that my...More

Great little bar hidden away in Clarence Street. Enormous collection of Whisky including a Japanese classic at $550 a shot. Scotch starts at a round $13 - $15. Just should definitely try the Whiskey Sour its awesome.

Nice find at the end of a search so be well briefed on how to get there. But once found, you enter an well appointed bar for whisky & whiskey along with the usual cocktail bottles. Staff are very proficient and fancy when mixing orders....More

Great selection of whiskey. It’s not big on food so eat before you get there! By far biggest range of Whiskey when in Sydney.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
