You’d be forgiven for thinking that a bar named after a notorious crime boss and hidden half-way up a shady back alley isn’t always the most salubrious spot to stop off for a drink. In fact, Love Tilly Devine Wine Bar is filled to the brim not with hardened criminals, but with a trendy, laid-back Sydney crowd sipping their way through one of the city’s most impressive wine lists. Inside, it’s dark and cosy, and the decor is refreshingly simple. In fact, except for a chalked menu, the walls are completely bare. All this simplicity leaves you free to focus your full attention on the main draw of this small yet atmospheric 40-seater bar: the phenomenal wine list. The reasonably priced menu has over 300 international wines to choose from, and the knowledgable staff will be happy to help out with a recommendation if you’re finding it hard to make a choice. Plus, chef Tim Webber, previously of Sean’s Panorama, has come up with a tantalising sharing plate-style menu that’s well worth indulging in. You might have trouble finding this hidden bar, tucked away in a back alley between William Street and Stanley Street.
