Yes this place is beautiful done out, with a nice vibe and some good spirit drinks choices. However I found that it totally overpriced and have to wait ages for a drink. No good lagers just expensive novelty ales. My impression of it is that...More

Finding it is a bit tricky, but the vibe is old school, Must visit, must drink, must sample the Mountain Goat Beer

This place was highly recommended from a local. You will need either a GPS and a little bit of a sleuth brain; or read plenty of reviews to find it. The bar is basically a speakeasy so that means it's not advertised. But if you...More

If you love whiskey they have over 600 types. It's a quirky place that's fun to visit. The atmosphere is nice. Very like what I imagine a speakeasy was like

I was a little thrown back at first when I was stumbling in an alley way following another man to a staircase. Luckily I knew the man and he had already taken me to some great bars so I trusted that this next would be...More

Hard to find but definitely worth it. I loved the decor, the pretzels and more importantly I loved the drinks. Make sure you get there early, there are plenty of seats but this place is popular and fills up quickly.

Our last visit to the Baxter Inn was a year ago. We returned and their was still the vast selection of whiskies, fantastic music with a great vibe to the place. And the pretzels were still for free, lovely. I don't really want to write...More

Awesome downstairs bar, with a prohibition-type feel. Whiskies galore here. Prices can be a bit steep but there are some quality drops. Only trick is finding the place!

There's no need to find the way/to the next whisky bar/if you ask why/it's Baxter Inn that's why! The ultimate whisky bar. Any lover of the golden nectar will revel in it's sophistication, selection and ambience

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
