Sydney

The Rum Diaries
Rum is the thing at The Rum Diaries, which offers 80 different varieties and a cool, laid-back atmosphere.
Opera Bar
Sprawled directly on the harbour front on the lower Opera House concourse, this open-air bar never fails to stop wide-eyed tourists in their tracks.
The London
An institution in Sydney, The London Hotel has been around since 1870 and it's a beloved local pub for Balmain residents.
Fatima’s
When you've quaffed one too many cocktails and have a hankering for a late-night felafel, Fatima is your lady.
Riverview Hotel & Dining
A gastropub that champions the best of contemporary British fare in casual, pubby surroundings.
Ash St. Cellar
