greygoosevinepopup33i3

Double Bay's Vine paints a pretty picture on most days with an Eastern suburban feel against a soothing evening backdrop, but when paired with a French inspired pop-up bar, the vibe is taken to the next level just as the sun begins to set. I scored an early invite to the Grey Goose's Salon at Vine pop-up, featuring the ultimate canapés and Grey Goose cocktails set against a French Riviera-inspired décor, previewing the temporary bar that will be at the restaurant until January 31st 2016.

Just a few months ago, the artsy Harbour Rocks Hotel replaced their attached antique souvenir shop with a nice and simple French creperie, working with the title Creperie Suzette. Modeled with a vintage, raw aesthetic in mind, remaining consistent with the area's historic past, the venue has been a daytime hit for the hotel, attracting locals and visitors with their rustic approach to French soul food and dedication to quality coffee.

A bar hop isn't necessarily the first thing to come to mind when planning a night out at The Star. But seriously, I can't recommend it enough. Sure, dining is world class, practicing your poker face is on the cards, and accommodation is all luxury and harbour views. But what's often forgotten is that within the stellar restaurants at The Star, there's a collection of excellent cocktails calling your name.

Drinking with the AU: Henry Deane, Hotel Palisade - Millers Point (Sydney)

HP_143

Millers Point is not often found on one's list of essential cocktails bars in Sydney, with little reason for bar-lovers to walk all the way up Argyle Street beyond The Rocks side. That has all changed recently, with historic pub Hotel Palisade reopening after an extensive re-work in its 100th year. Since July of this year, the venue has been enjoying a new lease on life, re-introducing (or introducing) Sydneysiders and visitors to it's stunning location. This month saw the venue take it's next big step, by opening up the top levels of the building, revealing a stunning split-level cocktail bar and eatery that, unsurprisingly, now offers one of the best views in Sydney.
