Small Bar and Kitchen Kirribilli, as the name suggests is a small bar. Tucked away in one of the side streets in Kirribilli, the bar is one of a handful of places for locals to get a drink. Without local knowledge, it is easy to walk by on a quieter night when there are few people inside. But on a Friday night when the bar comes to life it is full to capacity with people sharing cocktails and a cool boutique beer after work in a friendly environment. The bar is full of character with wine bottles lining the wall and interesting steam punk stools.
The small bar lends itself to intimate dining and with a few tables and counters patrons are able to sit down with a glass of wine and eat share dishes like olives and the warming spinach and artichoke dip with fluffy white crusty bread drizzled with olive oil.
As night turns to day, it is possible to return to Small Bar in the morning as they offer a full breakfast menu until midday. To aid in recovery after a long night out, the wholesome eggs on toast and eggs benedict can be ordered. Or for the runners who finish their run across the bridge at Milson's Point there are acai bowls and chia seed pudding for the health conscious.
At lunch burgers and sandwiches are on the menu, as well as salads such as grilled chicken salad. On the specials board can be found delicious meals such as Poutine, a dish from Canada made from chunky style chips smothered in a rich gravy with bits of pulled beef and cheese curd. The dish is hearty and filling and easily able to feed two people and it is possible not to mind that it is unhealthy with the Sydney Harbour Bridge so close to walk off the calories.
