Tucked away in a hidden back room in Darlinghurst is one of Sydney’s most talked about new speakeasy-style bars, Eau de Vie. Serving sophisticated cocktails and spirits in a stylish, intimate and dimly-lit setting, Eau de Vie has raised the bar of Sydney’s cocktail scene by employing a crack team of charming bartenders who can concoct exactly what you fancy. This is a bar team that take their drinks seriously, where only the best equipment and ingredients have been sourced (where even their ice is home made to enhance the overall quality of their drinks). Their impressive drinks menu well and truly delivers with inventive, expertly-crafted cocktails (all around A$16.50) and top shelf spirits. Don’t miss their signature Dark and Stormy or their pitch-perfect East Side Peach. The bar also offers a delectable light menu to smooth out the alcohol. To find the bar, enter the Kirkton Hotel and keep wandering down the long corridor until you can wander no more.
"Step inside and you're transported back to the speakeasy era."
