No two ways about it, Sydney's bar scene is flourishing. There are epic craft brewery bars, a rock-solid collection of cocktail haunts in the CBD, killer pubs and a host of exceptional wine bars. There were hardly any of them a decade ago, and now they're popping up left, right and centre all over town. It makes no difference whether you're a novice or an expert, fancy something natural or classic, old world or new, or whether you want to spend moderately or extravagantly – there's somewhere on our list for every palate, at every price point. Bottoms up.
