Don’t be confused by the shop front entrance – this is definitely a bar and a rather unique one at that. Absinthe Salon is Sydney’s very first absinthe-only bar. Don’t expect to just swig your absinthe in the same way you gulp down a beer - there is quite an art to the process, involving ornate glasses, sugar cubes and ice-cold water. The bar carries 24 varieties of absinthe from France and Switzerland, but choose your poison wisely, there’s a three drink limit.

Absinthe Salon - User Reviews

Fran:

The servers need to be significantly more friendly. We were rudely told by our server (an older gentleman) that we were not allowed to even taste the absinthe straight. He went so far as to grab my glass to stop me. It was very strange. He seemed to be accusing us of simply wanting to get drunk, rather than being absinthe connoisseurs who wanted a small sip of the straight spirit before adding water.review  09/05/2012
