Assembly Bar is located in the Regent Place arcade on George Street Sydney. I suggest grabbing dinner beforehand at Miss Chu's Tuckshop next door.
This trendy hipsters paradise serves up the finest premium cocktails on George Street. Grab a table in a dark corner and prepare yourself for serious spending. Their cocktails are truly phenomenal and are sure to hook you. They are, however, a tad pricey, as to be expected.
The Zombie Cocktail (pictured) comes out flaming! It's $25, made with rum and sure to light up your night... and the bench it's made on.
If you want to impress your friends then the 'Voodoo' skull is your best bet. It will set you back $40, but you do get 4 drinks out of it. It's made with tequila and has a zingy citrus flavour. The effect of the dry ice is mystifying.
The only downside to this place is that you will have to wait in line for a while, especially on weekends. Make the wait worthwhile and order a few drinks at a time.
Other must-try cocktails from Assembly Bar include the sugar lovers 'Cotton Candy' ($19) and those who live for espresso can't go past the 'Rich and Famous' ($19.50).
Remember to dig into their fancy finger food if you are feeling peckish. The cheese, mushroom and saffron arancini balls ($14) are always a winner. The wood fired pizzas are a great option for pairs and groups, and they even have vegan options. Check it out on a Sunday, the pizzas and spirits are only $10 from 4pm.
You will quickly realise why Assembly Bar has won countless prestigious awards from the likes of Vogue, Golden Acacia, Dr Fizz and more. This is a great spot for dates or gatherings and perfect for unwinding after a hard week of work.
