The Verdict

The crew behind S.A.S.H and Sly Fox have taken over Darlinghurst Bar, Stanley’s, and revived it with a hot new Miami-Vice themed makeover. Paying homage to the sunsets and statement blazers of the 80s cult-classic TV show, Stanley’s is fully decked out with pinks and teals. 

Leaning into disco-house vibes where locals can embrace their inner-diva, Friday and Saturday nights will feature a roster of killer local and international acts while Thursdays are BYO Record Nights and will be reserved for budding talent, meaning if you're a DJ in the making, you can book a spot on the decks. 

The drinks compiled by Java Muskitta (Button Bar) pack a tropical punch. Our faves include the popcorn pina-colada, mixed with rum, Coco Lopez, popcorn nectar and pineapple juice, and the "Flamingo Run", a concoction of watermelon, vodka, pomegranate and basil. Stanley’s is also set to play host to a rotating selection of craft beers from Sydney’s best local brewers.

When it comes to late-night munchies, Stanley’s has got you covered with their gourmet toasties. The "Triple Dare" is camembert, truffle and vegemite combo which let’s face it, is a real elevation for vegemite. Grilled cheese purists have also been catered for with the traditional triple cheese on sourdough.
