Dating back to medieval times, mulled wine was originally designed to show off the lavish lifestyles of a household. In a modern setting, it encourages good times as the temperatures drop, warming you from the inside out, and it tastes darn delicious, too. Here's our hit list of the bars in Sydney to enjoy mulled wine.
Arcadia Liquors | Redfern
Arcadia Liquors epitomises everything we love about small Sydney bars, right down to the fairy lights and bearded bar staff. The high ceilings and exposed brick walls mean a glass of mulled wine won't go astray in the cooler months, either.
Bar 34 | BONDI
Located along Campbell Parade, Bar 34 proves they still know how to please the crowds all year 'round. Opt for a warmed vino and enjoy the view of Bondi Beach without the chill factor.
Since I Left You | CBD
Positioning themselves as your friendly neighbourhood bar in the heart of Sydney, tender love and care has been put into Since I Left You's five-hour brewed mulled wine. Complete with a range of fruit and a dozen secret spices, it's not to be missed.
The Commons | Darlinghurst
Renowned for the annual tweaking of their mulled wine recipe, The Commons is the ideal place to beat the winter blues—it is one of the best bars in Sydney, after all. The mulling process takes three days from start to finish, ensuring the boldest flavours for your enjoyment.
Grandma's | CBD
Still the place to go to get spoilt rotten, head in to Grandma's for a warming drop of wine while you're lovingly wrapped in a crocheted blanket. Prepared by the 'Grandchildren', the mulled wine is nothing short of delicious.
The Duck Inn | Chippendale
The Duck Inn has made a point of providing the perfect winter hideaway in Sydney to combat your winter chills. Complete the experience by teaming an expertly brewed mulled wine with a hearty baked dinner.
The Potting Shed | Alexandria
New kid on the block, The Potting Shed, is the perfect place to warm yourself from the inside out. Complete with wheelbarrow fire pits and blankets to cover your knees, the mulled wine is definitely worth a try.
