Sydney's Best Small Bars


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.
