New cocktail bar in Sydney: Alice has fallen down the rabbithole

Pink cocktail

Fittingly in the basement of the heritage-listed, former bond stores at 16 Argyle Street Sydney, the elegant cocktail bar is the newest addition to the city’s premium restaurants and bars.

Enter via an ambient stairwell, the descent lined with rich velvet drapes, as smooth, lounge-bar beats drift up to street level.

Downstairs, jewel-coloured, fabric-covered booths, banquettes, and bar-side seating create an elegant space for 65 guests, plus an intimate, 10-person, semi-private space that can be dramatically curtained off. Plum and burnt-amber accents, touches of gold, velvet and other soft fabrics and ostrich-feather lights create a world of adult-only decadence.

Channelling vintage glamour, Alice delivers an advanced cocktail program, elevated bar menu and exemplary service culture. The approach to drinks making is serious and advanced yet sprinkled with fun.

Expect clever twists on classics all in an indulgent warm, fanciful, flirtatious and feminine cocktail bar. Date night, anyone?
