Where to go after midnight
Late night small bars in Sydney
It's getting close to the witching hour and your favourite venue is about to call last drinks, what are your late night options for small bars?
Small Bars: Newtown
Inner city, at times gritty and long time student mecca, the streetscape of Newtown meant it had small bars long before the rest of Sydney caught on. Some of the original stalwarts are looking a little dated now, but new small bars are taking up the reigns.
Bench Wine Bar
A starkly modern space serving cocktails and wines: 5/10
Sitting directly opposite the Enmore Theatre, it is probably the first venue in a long time to offer something different without seeming at odds with
the neighbourhood: 7/10
A bar that seems quiet at the street-side but venture deeper for the action: 6/10
Everything is done with thought and balance. Unlike many of the larger soulless venues, you get the feeling they care what happens there. Plus they know how to have fun: 8/10
Madame Fling Flong
No longer a sneaky upstairs hideaway, Madame Fling Flong has taken over the ground floor and added a new tapas-style menu. 8/10
The Midnight Special
Refined grunge may seem like a contradiction but it's the best way of describing this small bar lurking on the outskirts of Newtown: 6/10
Occupting a small shopfront and seating about 30 people, this is the perfect local bar: 6/10
Mary's Place, just off King Street - expect an opening in late Autumn
Glebe small bars
The Green Room: 156 Enmore Rd, Enmore
Hive Bar: 93 Erskineville Rd, Erskineville
