BULLETIN PLACE
Sydney, New South Wales

Top10 Image
Located one block up from Circular Quay, Bulletin Place is causing a cocktail storm with famed bartender Tim Philips from Hemisphere Cocktail Bar at the helm. It's an adventure trying to find this cosy and well-hidden little gem which is situated on the first floor of a heritage building; decked out with recycled, earthy decor, the venue features a daily cocktail menu written on butcher's paper behind the bar that follows the rhythm of the seasons. For wine lovers, a bio dynamic list offers select NSW drops, and for the beer fans, all freshly brewed drops come from Australia.

PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

Bulletin Place is the work of three of the best bar tenders in Australia – so it's really no surprise that this place is smoking hot. Hidden away on the first floor of what was once a bookbinding and printing office in the 1950s, Bulletin Place is sandwiched between Tapavino (who will actually deliver a cheese and charcuterie platter to the venue, upon request) and Cabrito Coffee Traders.

The small rectangular room is moodily lit with open-bulb wire pendant lights dangling above the bar while banquette seating lines the side wall, paired with wooden tables and mismatched wooden chairs. A narrow timber table steals the centre of the space, prettily sitting on a Persian rug. The rest of the fitout boasts the standard industrial look –
weathered walls, exposed ceiling beams and rough-hewn floors but, don't worry, it's still a far cry from clichéd.

If you can, steal a seat at the bar because that's where the magic happens. A list of five cocktails on the expensive side of ‘Sydney average', come written on butcher's paper and change daily depending on the seasonal bounty. A Black Cherry Bramble of black cherries, Tanqueray, lemon and Pastis strikes a beautiful balance between tangy and sweet whilst a carefully considered Mango Rickey with freshly pureed mango, vodka, lime and soda is a refreshing option for a sticky summer night. There is also a concise wine list (two reds and two whites by the glass) with accessible sparkling and some liquid gold for the high rollers. A handful of crafty beers and some serious herbal bitters (ask to sample the Hungarian Unicum) are also on offer.

When you get the bill after just a few drinks, your pocket may feel slightly singed, but the purposely intimate space allows for individual attention. With no street signage, Bulletin Place may be hard to find but it's a discovery well worth making and we are happy to vouch, the personal service is worth your dime.
