The change of season is slowly creeping up on us and how else to combat the cold than to cosy up somewhere warm, with friends or lovers and your tipple of choice!
We spent a little time exploring the suburbs in a bid to find a little spot for everyone, so you can be still be social whilst you hibernate.
For Cocktails: Scout Bar, Surry Hills
Scout Bar can be found at The Dolphin Hotel, through a secret door and a short climb of a staircase. It's perfect for intimate first dates, low-key drinks with colleagues or pre party vibes with your besties.
The cocktail menu is as mysterious as it's aura, with straight out of London's Matt Whiley, one of the world’s most recognised mixologists, creating concoctions to dazzle and delight.
Amongst the magic you'll find banana “wine”, (an intense banana, chocolate, nutty, fruit wine) and our favourite of the evening, The Espresso Highball, that quite frankly we could drink for days and never tire of it's taste!

For Beers and Cider: Willie The Boatman, St Peters
If you haven't yet experienced Willie's, it really is a must for this Winter.
St Peter's is where this relaxed environment resides, with Pat McInerney and Nick Newey running the show since 2012.
Using the finest ingredients, they have created some really tasty, home brewed beers, that will leave you giddy and laughing with the locals in no time!
From Dark Ale and Pale Ale to Corn Ale and Lager, Willie's has a varied selection to tickle everyone's taste buds!

For Alcoholic Slushies and more: Manly Greenhouse, Manly
Beachside bar, Manly Greenhouse, has recently opened in the Northern Beaches and has three different levels to delight, including a light drenched, undercover, rooftop bar with panoramic views, tranquil greenery and flora.
There is a variety of beverages on offer from hot drinks, wines and beers on tap, tinnies and cocktails, with our favourite being the Alcoholic Slushies, all to be consumed adjacent to the sea!
Their rooftop is open 7 days a week, so there'll be no reason to miss out!

For Tequila: Cantina OK, Council Pl 2000
Cantina OK! is potentially Sydney's tiniest bar with the capacity for only 20 humans to celebrate Tequila.
No seating is required as you knock back some of the most interesting of concoctions, but if you need some explanations behind what you're downing, then there is a 68 page book on hand to guide you through the 48 types of Mexican mezcal.
For Wine: Field Blend Wine & Cheese Store, Balmain.
Born in 2018, Field Blend showcases both the well known and the unknown in winemakers from around the globe.
There is something for everyone's budget here and if you are like us, fans of cheese to compliment your wine, then this is the place for you to indulge with International and Australian cheeses!
Well, what are you waiting for?
We'll see you at the bar!
