Sydney’s small bar scene has changed a lot in the past few years as the local council has changed licencing laws to make them more viable.

The result is a really healthy mix of small bars, many of them underground, many of them completely un-advertised. Only through social media would you find a bar like Baxters – up a small alleyway and tucked around under a building in the corner.

We went to 3 underground bars –

Secret Sydney. Fascinating.

What a treat!

Dinner with Michael Hope and his wife Karen for Robyn and me and 10 others at Hope Estates winery on the weekend.

Hope Estates ales and cider as well as beautiful wines matched to the dinner. The chef talked us through the courses during desert and a lovely Verdelho.

Sadly, no mention of coming back to enjoy Fleetwood Mac or Elton John later this year 😦

Will be a tall order topping this. Very cool.
