Small Bars: Balmain and Rozelle
You can spend weeks in Balmain and Rozelle and still not have enough time to visit all the pubs and bars tucked in its back streets. Now there are even more ways to grab a drink with the slow but steady appearance of new small bars. It's a tough place to open a venue: Vice Wine Bar appeared in mid-2011 but closed a year later. The site is now occupied by Bar Cantina.
Bar Cantina Mexican food and drinks in a festive atmosphere (by the same team that runs The Corner Bar - below) 350 Darling St
The Cottage Bar & Kitchen With a front garden and a rooster weather-vane to welcome you, The Cottage feels like a rustic guesthouse in the country. 342 Darling Street
Lodge Wine Bar Warm soft-lit interior with interesting old-world decor or outdoor patio seating - it's nice to have a choice. 3/415 Darling St
Monkey Bar A long time resident of Balmain, this bar is two small bars-in-one 255 Darling Street
The Corner Bar Coffee, cocktails and breakfast: the perfect all-rounder 632 Darling Street, Rozelle
