Four must try bars
How about a pub crawl with less of the crawl? Neutral Bay, on Sydney's lower North Shore, is the perfect place.
In recent times it has become an increasingly popular location for dinner and drinks, with a number of new bars and restaurants flooding onto the scene. With minimal distance between them, it means you can try a few different bars in one night and it's easier for friends to join you midway around.
Blue Plate has a cocktail / bar area, with a happy hour on a selection of cocktails, beers and bar food from 5-7pm daily. If you are peckish, I've heard the buffalo hot wings are well worth a try. It also has a full restaurant for those wanting to stay for dinner.
The Local Bar is tucked down a side lane but is a great find. A classy outlet, with hundreds of bottles of wine on display behind the bar, it has a vast drinks menu and even serves mulled wine in Winter!
Garden Brasserie is a great bar for catching up with friends, with its wide selection of Tapas and extensive cocktail menu. My favourite cocktail is the Cheesecake Martini. Amazing! It has two levels with an open staircase in the middle. With its garden theme, it really does make you feel like you're on holiday.
