Sydney’s New Bar Openings For February 2018

We’re only one month into 2018, but it’s been a busy one for Sydney’s bar scene, with new venues opening up all over town. From a sophisticated Northern Beaches spot, to a contemporary Bondi public bar, we’ve scouted out the best of the city’s most recent additions. Check out our round-up of Sydney’s new bar openings for February 2018.
Bert's Bar & Brasserie New Bars February
The Newport has scored a smart new addition in Bert’s – a chic bar and brasserie that takes its design cues from a 1930’s hotel dining room, elegant and swathed in pastel. Head in to enjoy Euro-influenced fare, a dedicated oyster bar, a seriously impressive wine list and a lineup of elegantly tweaked classic cocktails.
Bondi Beach Public Bar New Bars February
Maurice Terzini (The Dolphin, Icebergs) has opened the doors to his latest venture – a modern interpretation of the classic Aussie pub. The beachside bar boasts striking interiors, a soundtrack heavy on old-school Australian rock and an easy-eating menu sprinkled with Italian influence. Rounding out the fun, you’ll find a top-notch wine list and lots of funky seasonal cocktails.
Hartsyard New Bars February
After a three-week makeover and a change of pace, Newtown’s Hartsyard is back in action, ready to start winning even more hearts with its latest offering. Head in now and you’ll find a brighter, fresher fitout, and a share-friendly menu where seafood and veggies reign supreme. Just like the old days, there’s also some excellent drinking to be done, thanks to a banging wine rotation and a range of stand-out cocktails.
House Bar & Bistrot
Potts Point
House Bar & Bistrot New Bars February
Potts Point newcomer House Bar & Bistrot is a homely addition to the ‘hood, plating up an oft-changing menu of generous, Italian-inspired fare. Backing up the eats, a tidy curation of cocktails and Italian wine varietals is primed for those after-work sessions, while weekend DJ sets and acoustic acts liven things up as the night wears on.
Ginkgo Bar & Dining
Ginkgo Bar & Dining New Bars February
Taking over the former Bar Brose digs for the next twelve months is Ginkgo Bar & Dining, from the minds behind Ultimo’s Chulin. The menu here is inspired by the punchy flavours of Harbin, in northeast China, and the bar’s whipping up a sensational range of clever signature sips to match. The best part? It’s open late, slinging both food and cocktails until the wee hours.
