The Verdict

Tucked away on the quieter end of Darlinghurst Road, you’ll find the unassuming Black Bottle. Described by the owners as a cave á manger (French for a wine shop that doubles as a restaurant), this slick tapas style bar is everything Sydney has been waiting for.

Serving up European small plates, there is no set menu. Cured meats (think lomo, beef breasola, sobrasada and more) hang from the ceiling and there’s a whole heap of artisan cheeses, pickled delights and fresh to death seafood dished up daily. From clams with garlic and nut picada to scallops paired with jamon and sapphire, no matter what you order, you’re in for a treat.

Being a wine bar, you can expect to discover some of the best drops in town (from $8 a glass) but if you’re not in the mood for vino, cocktails start from $12 a pop. They also know that Saturdays are king which is why they now open for lunch from midday and are slinging Bloody Mary's for $12 a pop. Just sayin'. If you plan on kicking on, make sure you grab an espresso for $2 (yes, really!).

The Black Bottle legends have just introduced our new favourite thing—$5 French rosé Thursdays. As delicious as it sounds, every Thursday from 4pm until close (or until they run out).
