We’re getting a cocktail bar spin-off from the legends behind Maybe Frank. Maybe Sammy is the new brain baby of co-owners Stefano Catino, Vince Lombardo and Andrea Gualdi. Located in a charming spot in The Rocks, these guys will be serving up drinks in epic proportions. So epic, in fact, this is the only Australian bar currently featured on the prestigious World's 50 Best Bars list, taking out the top spot in Australasia.
The venue has a capacity of 70 with seating split between pink velvet banquets and leather-clad stools and seats, but you’ll find the Hollywood Regency cross Palm Spring vibes really come to life with the huge marble bar topped with gold lamps.
The bar team here whip up a string of signature cocktails a little left of centre (in the best way possible) so expect a Thunderbird with Aperol, Americano Cocchi wine, Becherovka, jasmine kombucha and grape rocks. Or if your taste steers more towards the sweeter side, head towards the Flamingo Capri, mixed with Barsol pisco, aquavit, rhubarb, citrus and bitters.
Maybe Sammy’s food menu is lined with small snacks, which means olives, oysters, charcuterie and cheese boards are all an option when you need to soak up the tipple.
