YORK LANE
Sydney, New South Wales

Top10 Image
The best bars are hidden in the most unlikely places and this is exactly what people love about York Lane. Nestled between skyscrapers and a train station, York Lane is a chameleon; transforming from a casual espresso bar by day to a swanky boutique bar by night. The all day menu is comprised of tapas, freshly made sandwiches and other light treats to satiate your appetite after a long day at work.

PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

York Lane, tucked away in the heart of the CBD, can be described in three words: Tiny. But. Fabulous. Unlike many of Sydney's new small bars, York Lane doesn't try too hard. There is no theme, colour scheme or particular design. But it is certainly not devoid of character. Instead of paintings, bicycles hang on the walls and rather than proper seats, patrons perch on child-sized red and white wooden stools. A chalk board offers cheeky descriptions of drink specials and round copper lights dangerously hang from the ceiling. And unbeknown to many, all the furnishings in this tiny, split-level space are recycled.

An espresso machine pumps out takeaway lattes by day but as the sun sets, York Lane transforms into a licensed restaurant and tapas bar. Small clipboards are handed out with brown recycled paper listing a handful of tapas dishes and drinks, which change daily. Duck pancakes with hoisin sauce are the perfect accompaniment to a crisp pear cider but I eye off another table's order of pork belly with chilli jam and buffalo wings. I make a mental note to order these next time. Because, yes, there will definitely be a next time at York Lane.
