The Everleigh offers an intimate, polished experience, from go to whoa
In these days of no bookings/order at the bar, it’s refreshing to experience seriously polished service, and that’s what you get at the Everleigh. Look to the right of Belle’s Hot Chicken on Gertrude Street and duck into the door right on the corner, head up the stairs and emerge in a historical remnant of olde-worlde drinking: low lit and high class.
If you’re travelling in a pack or just like a little enclosed space to canoodle in, opt for the big booths in the second room, but the crew here possess serious bar chops so if you care about what goes in your glass go for seat up near the bar so you can catch the action.
A Red Grasshopper will put a spring in your step with tequila, honey and lemon, with colour and spicy backbone care of some smoked paprika, but if you leave your future in the hands of staff here your reward might be a Too Soon: a riff on a Sam Ross drink that makes magic out of Cynar, gin and fresh OJ.
