Get serious about cocktails by the seaside

This coastal reincarnation of the inner-city Pocket Bar maintains all the trimmings of its flash Sydney cousin with the bonus of being smack bang by the beach. It’s close enough to hear the waves crashing while you enjoy a cocktail at the bar or take a twirl around the dancefloor later in the night.

They’re as serious as their CBD counterparts when it comes to drinks. The extensive cocktail menu features creative numbers like their variation of a classic Negroni, which uses Mount Gay Rum to add tropical flair, along with hibiscus tea, coconut and a sprinkling of salt for the setting. On Fridays the three top-selling cocktails go for $12 until 7pm, so make sure you know the list by heart.

Enjoy dinner in the form of multiple bar snacks like the arancini with wild mushrooms, truffle-infused polenta fries or cheeseburgers miraculously reinvented as spring rolls. Or, go all-out with a seafood spread. Try a combination of the scallops served with roe mousse and prosciutto, and the Balmain Bugs that come out coated in a rich vanilla butter.
