Street is for Baxter Inn - the most anticipated Sydney bar opening since, well, anything ever.
This basement-level hooch sanctuary is brought to you by Anton Forte and Jason Scott - the two bartenders best known for openingShady Pines Saloon. The duo have a strange knack for creating great bars. To them, itâ€™s a simple recipe of nice staff + tasty drinks = success.
Bowls of pretzels are passed around; you can hear yourself speak over the old school tunes in the background. There are enough tables and booths to sit at and stools lining the bar; sit there and itâ€™s likely you will get to know all the bartenders and a few locals too. No detail is left untouched; from large hand cut ice cubes, to sockets lining the bar for phone charging convenience. As at Shady Pines, cocktails (under â€śNancy Timesâ€ť in the menu) are reliably awesome but not the focus of the bar. Thereâ€™s a short list at the front of the bookand the guys will make you most anything youâ€™d want to ask.
