We come to Sydney fairly regularly and stay in this area. We had been to this lane before but never noticed this place. We came here with a friend who is a local and had a few drinks before dinner. The service was friendly and...there is a good range of beers, wines and cocktails. It had a really nice atmosphere. We will certainly be back.More

This was our first visit to Bulletin Place. I picked it for post marriage-proposal cocktails. She said yes! - so we were both ready for some seriously good cocktails, and we were not disappointed. We had three different cocktails each, including customised. All were excellent...- and very memorable. The mixologists were very friendly, and highly knowledgeable. We always try and sit at the bar so we can learn more about what we were drinking, and we certainly left the bar a little bit wiser. We were the first to arrive (at 5pm), and by the time we left 90 mins later the place was buzzing and almost full. Highly recommended as an intimate meeting place for after work drinks, dates or more. Will definitely return.More

What a cosy lovely place to get a cocktail which we did and they were all delicious, some nice new ones to try. Quite pricey though but a lovely treat. Great atmosphere and friendly staff.

One of the endearing things about this bar is the fact you are unlikely to just stumble upon it. They have a policy of only letting a certain number of people in at once and the doorman controls this. If you find the right door,...head upstairs when permitted and a delightful bar awaits you. They rotate their specials and have those prominently on display but will make you anything your heart desires. They have a great range and some food options too. We just had cocktails and relaxed. Nice...... 🍸🧊More

Hidden above a laneway in the CBD near the Quay, this gem may well be the perfect small cocktail bar. The space is tiny and so is the cocktail list. The day we were there we could choose from six daily cocktails ranging in type...of flavour profile and how alcohol forward they were. We had a couple of beverages each and, while we did not partake, there’s an array of little nibbles you can order as well. The staff are well informed and happy answer any questions or just talk about cocktails in general. Chill, funky and great drinks means this has earned an entry on my list of go-to cocktail bars.More

If you like bars that give the vibe of low key cool, have-to-know-someone-to-get-in, this is the place. Similar to Baxter’s, there’s always a line and the drinks are awesome. The space itself is pretty cool too, would recommend for date night or casual catch up...with friendsMore

great little laneway we found by noticing Umbrellas set out in it from our 4 Seasons hotel window. Neat selection of bars and restaurants offering varying happy hour deals.

Will never be back as this was the worst thing I have ever witnessed in a bar in Sydney, the reviews are so high but the music is to loud and the service is poor.

Fantastic spot, a stone's throw from Circular Quay, serving incredible cocktails using seasonal ingredients. Fantastic atmosphere, lovely staff.

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
