Sydney's small bar scene has exploded since we were last in the city and now every corner, laneway and abandoned building has been filled with chic bars and hidden watering holes.
We've had a fabulous time discovering all the new cocktail bars and we've had some great drinks along the way so here are the best looking bars in Sydney so you can drink your negroni in style.
Speakeasy bars are nothing new in Sydney but The Barber Shop may well be the most successful of the lot with gorgeous bare-bones styling and even a secret outdoor space in an old alley.
Entering this gin-joint takes a little moxie as you need to pass through a working barber shop and then a heavy door into the dark space beyond. Very cool, very chic and the cocktails are sublime.
Barrio Cellar is subterranean modern tequila temple that's recently opened in the middle of Sydney with an interior design that's just as cool and fresh as the drinks on offer.
Design firm Luchetti Krelle has mixed industrial elements with geometric motifs and wiry furniture to lighten the space and shine a spotlight on the spicy food and refreshing tequila.
This is what Sydney is all about. A bright, gorgeous space overlooking the harbour with interiors that feel like the most glamorous beach-side cabana you've ever seen.
Cafe del Mar may be synonymous with chill-out mixes but this bar cum restaurant gets lively at the weekend with harbour-side parties lifting the mood to meet the glamour of the interiors.
The Butler is one of our new Sydney favourites because of its effortlessness - from the food and the cocktails, to the bright white and tan interiors, everything just works.
A gorgeous mix of textures gives this space a sumptuous feel and the muted colours let the eye wander around the room before settling on the spectacular view over the city. Perfection.
Sydney is undergoing something of a rum revolution with a crop of bars themed around the versatile spirit popping up around the city. The Lobo Plantation is one of many but a cut above the rest.
A little kitsch with a lot of style, the interiors are a great selection of vintage pieces that reference a faded history of caribbean rum plantations with just a hint of pirate-chic. Arrr, yes!
