Why locals recommend it
The nicest people run this pocket-size bar, with a list carved from the world’s best natural wine producers. There’s a decided focus on grower Champagne and an exceptional collection of German riesling, and all the wines are from farmer-growers who work organically, or from producers who source from organic or biodynamic farms. A great place to while away the hours. Seek out the ever-lovely Gabrielle Webster—omnipresent in the bar—and ask which riesling she’s currently drinking. Her suggestions are always a surprise and a delight.
Tips from locals
Commemorating one of Darlinghurst's more shady charachters from the inter-war years Tilly ran a string of brothels centred around Darlinghurst and the Cross, and in particular, Palmer Street. Luckily those days are long gone but the vibe lives on!
Funky, cosy bar with eclectic furniture and an extensive wine menu accompanying Italian nibbles.
A small wine bar hidden in a back lane. Amazing wine list, very fun staff. A romantic spot for a glass of wine as well and nice food. Can have a full meal there or just some snacks. Romantic.
