Highlander Bar will have you feeling as though you've stepped back in time to Sydney's colonial past. Or, that you've been teleported to a whisky den deep in the Scottish Highlands.
Housed within a historic, cosy room in the Sir Stamford Hotel, you'll find a solid variety of Scottish, Japanese, Taiwanese, American and Australian whiskies to sip by the fire.
Highlander Bar is a brilliant spot to indulge your love of whisky, or equally—to kick off your whisky journey. There are bi-monthly whisky masterclasses and rotating themed tastings. There's also a whisky high tea, which features whisky flights and an assortment of whisky infused treats (think Jack Daniels apple mousse slice, or traditional lemon-scented scones with clotted cream and Maker's Mark orange marmalade).
If you're feeling hungry, there's a menu of light snacks and more substantial meals on offer too. Order mushroom and truffle arancini or freshly shucked oysters as a pre-dinner snack, or go all in with an American style grill (pork, lamb or slow-cooked BBQ beef ribs).
