Perhaps the tiniest wine bar in Sydney, the exciting 121BC Italian wine bar is tucked way a hidden back street in Surry Hills. With no tables and just a long bar counter, enjoy one of Sydney's best and most reasonably priced Italian wine lists. The sleek and seductive atmosphere is nonetheless laidback, making this a welcome addition to Sydney's small bar scene. Soft, futuristic lighting and a towering floor to ceiling backdrop of wine bottles creates a dramatic first impression. Choose from 121BC’s carefully curated Italian wine list which is displayed on a blackboard menu, where vintages are mostly sold by the glass and range from boutique to biodynamic. Those preferring to drink by the bottle can do so for a modest corkage fee. Tasty and inexpensive Italian bar snacks offer the perfect accompaniment to the wine, including tastes such as minestrone with lamb, or piles of luscious bread with sardine butter. Gregarious manager Giorgio De Maria exudes Mediterranean charm and possesses a vast knowledge of his phenomenal wine menu. The excellent Vini Italian restaurant, run by the same folks, is just next door, so head next door when you’re ready for a hearty and delicious Italian meal.
