There is not much to give away the location, but its clear when you enter the unmarked building and see the lit up sign pointing to the basement, that Bar None has been a secret refuge for cocktail enthusiasts since 2004. A prohibition style speakeasy feel with big comfy couches, tables to gather around and a homey living room feel complete the seating area.

 

The focus is on table service, and an extensive and creative cocktail list. There are more than 300 spirits on the back bar and the team knows its stuff, so if you’re the kind to veer off menu, you can order confidently here.

Cocktails

Sherbet Fox

Plantation Pineapple Rum
Amaro Montenegro
Hellfire Habanero Shrub
Pineapple Syrup
Served shaken in a martini glass

CREATED BY LUKE CURHAM, BARNONE 2017.
A cocktail to get stuck in your head, with a lovely contrast between sweet pineapple and bitter Amari flavours, and just a little spice to excite the palate.

Tommy’s Margarita   

Espolon Blanco Tequila
Agave Syrup
Fresh Lime
Served in a Rocks glass

CREATED BY JULIO BERMEJO, TOMMY’S BAR, SAN FRAN 1965.

Negroni   

Beefeater 24 Gin
Campari
Sweet Vermouth
Orange twist
Served in a tumbler
AVAILABLE SMOKED for $20

CREATED FOR COUNT CAMILLO IN FLORENCE, 1920.
The Negroni is a twist on the original Americano. At the Casoni Bar, Count Camillo asked the bartender to add gin to the already popular Americano and the Negroni was born.

Classic Sazerac   

Rye Whiskey
Peychaud’s Bitters
Angostura Bitters
Sugar Syrup
Absinthe
Served in an absinthe rinsed rocks glass

CREATED BY ANTOINE PEYCHAUD, NEW ORLEANS, 1837.
In our opinion, the greatest cocktail ever invented. The home of Gumbo, Mardis-Gras and birthplace of the cocktail, New Orleans is one of the most inspirational cities in the world, and has been since the 1700s. The Sazerac was created by Antoine Amadie Peychaud, a Creole Apothecary who moved to New Orleans from the West Indies and set up shop in the French Quarter in the early 1800s (his original shop is now a gun store). The Sazerac is an exquisite cocktail. As you sip the drink you discover layers upon layers of flavours. The warmth and glow of the rye, effused with flavours of spice and honey, the bite of the bitters balanced with the sweetness of the sugar, with the subtle flavour of the anise underneath the perfume of the lemon oil = cocktail perfection.

Junipero
Rating: 94

ORIGIN: Potrero Hill, San Francisco, USA
DISTILLERY OWNED BY: Anchor Distilling
DISTILLATION: Pot Still – Distillation
INTRODUCED: 1997
MADE FROM: Fresh Botanicals
ALCOHOL CONTENT: 49.3%

Anchor Distilling have taken delight in the adventure of researching and experimenting with many such botanicals. They believe they have achieved a distinctive, intriguing complexity in their Junípero Gin: light and crisp and clean, combining a spiciness – the formula for a Martini with subtle delicacy. Martini Republic’s description hits it on the head: “Clean but not light like Plymouth. It is smooth but not the least bit tame, the spices shining through and the finish leaving a bit of a tang in the nose. The aroma is not as strong as, nor as mediciny as Bombay.” While Lawrence Marcus from Variety comments, “…this does the London Dry style better than anything from the U.K. Power, spice, perfume and balance: It might be the most perfect gin around.” (tasting note provided by Nicks Wine Merchant – Armadale)

The latest release from this remarkably well known Tasmanian distillery is clean, complex and highly recommended. The double cask is a combination of two single malts, one matured for 11 years in French Oak and the other matured for 11 years in American Oak. It offers a wonderfully fruity experience especially on the nose and often receives comparison with the Aberfeldy 12yo…trust us that’s a good thing.
