Tucked behind MediTrainean in Crows Nest, Blue Caboose is about to become one of your favourite summer bars in the North this year. The fit out is tropical and relaxed, making it the perfect kick off location before crossing the bridge, or an ideal spot for after work drinks. The cocktail list, created by Alex Clark (of Lobo Plantation, Eau de Vie and QT Sydney) keeps the holiday vibes going and our top picks are the sangria bianco and Moroccan pot punch.
The food is designed to share and if you’re in the mood for a nibble with your drink, then you should order from the tapas menu. But if you’re in the mood for something substantial, then the shared boards is your best option. We ordered The Capri, which is piled with dips, tabouli, arancini and a selection of charcuterie meats. We also wouldn’t blame you if you threw in a serve of the grilled prawns or calamari either, because they’re delicious.
