Tio's
The bar and a willing staff member
Tio's (Spanish slang for 'dude') is a new tequila bar, opened by two bar-keepers from the well known Shady Pines, located on a small backstreet in the heart of Surry Hills. Personally, I'm quite partial to Tequila, so I thought I'd take a friend who swore she'd never drink the stuff again - to give a more rounded view

It's a medium sized bar with a very trendy interior; stepping inside was like stepping onto a stereotypical Hollywood movie set for anything set in Mexico. Several rows of long wooden benches and stools fill the main floor. Shelves fill up the space behind the bar and are chock-a-block with bottles and tikis.

The lights are kept very low with a red glow for ambience, perhaps a little too much as my eyes were straining to see. The music isn't too loud, which is a plus for anyone wanting to chat with their company. The age range of the patrons was varied and the vibe and clothing was quite casual.

The bar staff are very friendly and quick to serve you. You get a free bag of buttered popcorn to share, which made we want to sing Tio's praises right then, but I thought I'd better wait for my drink. A large range of Tequila cocktails range from a reasonable $10 to $17; for those not interested in tequila at all, wine starts at $9 a glass and continues up to quite top end prices.

My personal favourite cocktail was the 'El Roberto' - a strange blend of cucumber, apple and tequila never tasted so delicious! Even my sceptical friend had to admit it was very drinkable, and didn't taste all that much like tequila.

Overall I was very satisfied with my experience and would recommend Tio's as a good place for after work drinks - although maybe you should take a torch.
