A Hedonist’s guide to…

Sydney

Ivy Pool Club
Entrance to this South Beach Miami meets Palm Springs wonderland is carefully restricted and as the name suggests, its centrepiece is the outdoor pool; the playground for Sydney's genetically blessed.
Bambini Wine Room
As something of a media magnet, Bambini Wine Room is a hip all-day drinking and dining spot for the ultra-trendy.
Gazebo Wine Garden

This oh-so hip Surry Hills wine joint is usually always abuzz - a good choice if you've been wandering the length of the hipster-happy Crown Street searching fo
The Loft
Overlooking King Street Wharf with 240-degree harbour views from its decked balcony, The Loft is a sophisticated watering hole.

Blu Bar
A Lost in Translation-style hotel bar, Blu Bar sits on its lofty 36th floor throne with a seriously impressive view over Sydney Harbour.
Pocket
This gritty, hip, semi-underground space attracts the crème of Sydney's hipster crowd, with more non-prescription glasses and stovepipe jeans than you can poke a swizzle stick at.
Zeta
A slinky seductress, Zeta is set inside the Hilton hotel, with a knockout terrace that overlooks George Street and the elaborate Romanesque dome of the Queen Victoria Building.
Lo-Fi
Shabby-chic interiors, well-made cocktails and a cooler-than-schol crowd makes Lo-Fi a safe bet for Sydney's most stylish.
Bungalow 8
Multi-faceted concept and lifestyle store...
Fico
The discreet entrance, sexy jazz tunes and flickering red candles should give you an idea that Fico isn't a rowdy drinking den.
