If there's one drink that really symbolises the last two years of our lives—it has to be the tiny bottled cocktail, right?
Tiny's is named after this pandemic-era beverage, but there's a whole lot more to this brand-new CBD venue than those cute Alice in Wonderland-style tonics. For one thing, it ain't literally tiny. It's a sprawling indoor-outdoor 170-seat space drawing together the all-day vibes of a bartender, barista, baker, chef, and in-house DJ.
By day, head to Tiny's for Single O coffee and sandwiches made on signature Vietnamese-style bread (perfectly crusty on the outside and delightfully fluffy on the inside). Sydney's sandwich scene is already impressive, but we reckon Tiny's "Huge Sandwich"—a customisable monster designed to be shared with friends—is bringing the party to the humble sambo like never before. At night, it's time to tuck into Tiny's namesake.
A feature wall stacked with bottled cocktails and a neon sign that reads, "save water, drink cocktails" sets the tone. Your classics are covered off (Espresso Martini, Old Fashioned), as well as some tweaks (a rum Negroni), and signatures (a vodka-based "Molotov" cocktail).
As well as sandwiches, the day-to-night menu features sharable plates like steak tartare, kingfish crudo, charcuterie, cheeseboards, and oysters served rockstar-style in a cloud of dry ice.
