A high seas haunt docks in Pyrmont
When a suburb features the huge gravitational force of a sprawling multi-venue like a mall or a casino, you can sometimes forget about all the little guys down on the street level. But that would be your loss, because after-work drinks in Pyrmont just got a whole lot more chill thanks to the addition of a pirate bar on Pyrmont Bridge Road with a Spanish accent and a taste for seafood.
Slide into one of the freshly lacquered timber booths by the open windows and watch the sun go down as you cool your heels with a Riders ‘Easy Rider' golden ale or a glass of the super approachable De Alto Amo tempranillo grenache from Spain. Or for something that’ll put a little pep in your step order up a Single Origin, a festive mix of rum, Fernet-Branca, black coffee and cacao syrup that comes served over ice and has the boozy, chocolate-orange flavour that we can’t help but associate with Christmas.
The soundtrack is not sea shanties but an easy-to-drink-to mix of Dylan, Vedder and a string quartet playing Metallica, and the menu features all the fruits of the sea on platters – pan fried, grilled, and salt and peppered. On Mondays they do a little snack of mussels in a salty tomato broth and bread for a fiver, or they’ll deep fry a lamington for you anytime, because they can. If you're hanging on this side of the harbour during daylight hours, they put away the booze and operate as a café.
Until now, the Star has been shouldering the lion’s share of the drinks slinging in Pyrmont, but reinforcements have arrived in the form of a skinny cocktail bar that likes its vibes nautical, its cocktails laced with rum and a little fish for supper.

Great venue with amazing food. The chips alone are a good reason to drop in but it's their Impeccable cocktail knowledge and friendly smile makes them one of my favourites.
Great atmosphere, really friendly staff who are open to vegan and vegetarian options and the best vegan roast in a Sydney bar! Execellent service, many future voyages to be had aboard peg leg!
